    Help needed.

    Looks like a black phantom tetra to me. Generally easy to sex, the females have red fins and the males have black ones Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk

    Glofish playing tag?

    Here in Australia they are referred to as widow tetras in all fish shops. Atleast where I am. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk

    Threads showing up blank

    Hi, I'm having some issues with opening some threads. When I click on the thread topic it opens but shows no posts. This is not happening for all threads but appears to be only for those which have the reply arrows that go in both directions - if that makes any sense. To further clarify, when...

    My community tank

    Hi, Thanks for the reply. It's a 4 foot tank. Have got a few caves and logs that the pair could use too. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk

    Yes sorry I probably should have been more specific. You are right I did mean out of ram, apistos and kribs Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk

    My community tank

    Thanks @Lajos_Detari for your reply I really appreciate you taking the time to comment. I do like the look of the apistos so will look around my LFS to see what's available. I realise that a lot of the eggs and the fry could be eaten in a community tank which is fine as I don't need heaps of...

    My community tank

    I've been considering a pair of either rams, kribs or apistos for the tank. Would be cool to watch a pair breed and hopefully get some fry. Any suggestions on which would be best? Read that kribs can be quite aggressive even to the cories while breeding but they are easy to look after Sent...

    My community tank

    (Link at end of post) Hi everyone, first video I've posted in a long time.... Just a quick look at my community tank. It needs a little bit of a clean up and some of the plants need a trim but here it is. I'm trying to locate done water sprite to float on the top for my sparkling gouramis...

    Sparkling or croaking gourami?

    Thanks for the information Byron, I'll see which my LFS has in stock at the moment. Do they generally keep to the top third of the tank? I struggle to find water sprite in a lot of our stores here in Australia but see a plant called 'lace fern' which looks pretty similar to me. Do you know if...

    Sparkling or croaking gourami?

    Hi, I was just wondering which of these gourami is generally better suited to a community tank? Was thinking of getting a group of 6-8 of them and will definitely get floating plants for them. 200L tank with 6 cories, 10 platies, 8 penguin tetra, 9 glowlight tetra and about 8 other random...

    Blind Cave Tetra: Pregnant or Tumour?

    Hi, Bought five blind cave tetras about two weeks ago and I absolutely love them - they are so active and it's so much fun watching them search for food. Amazing how well they swim considering they can't see! Anyhow, a couple of them have been getting bigger and I was thinking that they were...

    Siamese Algae Eater or Flying Fox?

    Hi, These were labeled as Siamese Flying Fox at the local petbarn, but I think they are SAE. They don't have any colouring on their fins and the black stripe does taper off through the back fin. I've read that Flying Foxes also have a gold stripe above the black but these one's don't. I think...

    Nitrate Levels Too High For My Fish?

    I haven't had any experience at all with the fish listed but are there any live plants that you could add to help reduce the nitrates? I know you can't have live plants with some cichlids but there might be some tougher ones you can try. Anubias? Or floating plants like frogbit or water...
