  1. Yearly Raffle is now open!

    I love my canisters! Infact, I hate the ones you mentioned, but canisters. Are fun. Especially cleaning it out and giving everything a good wash. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  2. Yearly Raffle is now open!

    Had an outdoor pond, wanted to stock with aussie natives but unfortunately the local fish shop couldn't order the fish in. It was summer, and mosquitos are in full effect and family was going to get goldies. Relented, but only if we stock with fancies- always wanted to keep fancies, have had tropical fish for 10+ years! And rest is history! Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    I'd like to know where on earth you get all these calicos from? I NEVER see them for sale at my LFS, so I recently resorted to buying online and having one shipped in... hopefully it all goes well! Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    The mopani wood may lower the pH even further, so the shells would help. Just keep an eye on it, it may have no effect, might be the opposite. [emoji4] ~~~~~~~~~~ Without meaning to sound like an arse, you did question what minerals occured in water... or most likely, thats how i perceived it. But in essence, you water will still contain those minerals, regardless of concentration. I dont really think I was brought into the internet myth. It was studying biology back in highschool (think I was like 14) that I had a similar conclusion. And reading the 'myth' did make sense IMO. How do we know that the food contains enough for the fish? Not trying to cause a fight or drama, but one thing I've learnt from studying animal nutrition is that the packaging isnt often what you think... or at least in Australia, the food industry is very... vague (?) and can be difficult to determine whats actually good or not. But I do agree with you, the removal of minerals in the watercolumn could cause problems rather than solutions, especially if not supplemented fully through food! Did I say this? If not, my mistake. I was meaning to say it offers a good supplement! Thats certainly what you experienced, but having supplemented my aquatic plants with iron and have no issue that you mentioned... I wonder if it was the compound that the iron was in that made them sick... Some compounds could have negative effects. But its certainly an interesting case regardless. Do we agree on waterchanges also removing hormones? [emoji6] If not, agree to disagree - on the whole matter? We have had our successes regardless, so does really matter?

    I forgot to mention that the new digs look great! My bad. What's the pH of the tap? 6.6-6.8 isnt that bad IMO, the goldies will adjust fine to a pH of that level without issue. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    Yeah, they pretty cute. Im very happy with my gang atm, they very cute... the only downside is that they have wiped out my MTS population. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
