  1. I think that problem is after you've bred a few times you flood the local market with your stock. That's my theory anyway. Either that or they don't want hobbyists making a profit.
  2. I do miss those fish. I was just disappointed that I couldn't even give the fry away.
  3. Hi peeps, Hope everyone is well. Just wanted to start a discussion to see what everyone's opinion is about the ultimate planted goldfish aquarium is. For me, the first plant I've always added is elodea densa.
  4. Oh yeah, I decided to go with lake Tanganyika Cichlids and try for the 'freshwater reef' with shell dwellers, rock dwellers and open water swimmers. Erm, they all bred within 3 weeks of setting up the tank. I had 3 little clouds of fry, about 50 in each cloud. Then a month later they all bred again, then again and again. At first I thought it was epic, 12 fish had turned into 150. But then all hell broke loose and the parents were causing murder swimming into other territories and they were all fighting. So they all went to live at the LFS.
  5. It drove me mad. I gave mine to the lfs a year ago and I'm still find fish in the overflow
  6. I was thinking of getting a large piece of driftwood and adding loads of anubia nano to it. For an idea of what I have in mind do an internet search for raft style bonsai.
  7. I'd love to see some anubia inspiration. I'd like to make a raft of anubia and maybe a few terracotta pots with plants capped with pea gravel
  8. I really loved her tank. I would love to do something similar in future with all that anubia
  9. I only ask as this tank reminds me of hers.
  10. Does anyone remember Alicia who had the big 8 foot tank full of anubis?
  11. I feel like it would make an epic, although expensive refugium light.
  12. Cyanobacteria? I hated that stuff. After trying different types of aquariums. I've decided I'm not a fan of coral or plants. I'm a fish keeper and get more enjoyment out of a bare bottom tank with a couple of big fish in. I will definitely build a fish house and new pond. I love the idea of keeping a quarantine tank and then building a central filtration system for the rest. I would like to buy an RO system and strip it down to just the pre filters and just run it as carbon so I could drip freshwater into the system and then have an overflow to the drain. I also like the idea of having a large refugium of either elodea densa or hornwart and crushed coral sand to buffer the Kh. When I start I will create a thread.
  13. I wanted to try my hand at cichlids as everyone was telling me they are cool. Within a couple of months I had a tank full of fry I gave to the LFS because nobody wanted them. The one cichlid I was drawn to was the Frontosa, I love the idea of them growing slowly over many years and ending up as massive fish. I have 9 but I intend on reducing down to 2 males and 4 females.
