Newbie interested in aquascaping and australian freshwater fish


Recommended Posts

Hi all! Nice to be here! I'm in Melbourne, and have a background in botany.  I have my first tank,  a hand me down... taking it easy as i tend to go over board with new hobbies... just learning the ropes! I inherited 2 danios, a cat fish, and a comet goldfish. I have added two freshwater mussels, and two Murray River rainbows, with hopes to add more local fish in future.  I have been experimenting with local wetlands plants, from the maroondah area.  Altho with mixed success, so have also installed some hardy aquarium plants from the local pet shop to keep the planted tank looking planted as i learn to manage fish herbivory, light and nutrients.... 

Anyway, I'm looking forwards to learning a lot!

Hi there beulz. Welcome to the forum. Sounds like you’re off to a great start. You should have a look at the Aquarium Society of Victoria and the Eastern District Aquarium Society. Both are starting to hold events again after lockdown last year.

Hi Beulz,

It is hard to keep things at just one or two tanks - believe me, I keep downgrading and slowly tanks and fish keep sneaking back in.  Feel free to share photos of your setup - we LOVE photos around here...lol  :brownorum:
