I'm not sure the job is still available and I only just saw it today. I sent them an email about it and will have to wait for a response, but all applications were due in at the end of July. It was just interesting that the fish wholesaler is buying or has bought a major fish farm that specialises in rainbowfish, which is what I specialised in for 20 years.
My main concern if I got it would be travelling across the country and living in semi-remote Queensland. But it would be fun collecting fish up there. The chocodiles are an issue but the fish would be nice.
I was wondering why the New Guinee Reds would do fine for a year or two..then stop eating. Nobody ever told me a thing about TB as a Rainbow scourge.
I agree that M.boesemani is like a tank and the ultimate rainbow because of color and hardiness. Everything non M.boesemani is on the 2-3 year plan and that's it.
Best of luck with the job application Colin. If there’s any justice you’ll get it. All the advice dished out on here for free over the years deserves something other than the warm feeling of helping others.
