  1. i received some really great online service from ebay store http://stores.ebay.com.au/essentials-petsupplies2015 they are located in Qld, but they were happy to sell me just the heads off their sunsun filters to keep my shipping costs down. i didn't expect them to shave any price off the entire filter, but they did so without any asking and sold me two HW-304B tops (with UV bulb and glass) for $60 each and $30 shipping to Vic on the entire package. they are heavy, so i believe that to be fair. they don't sell a lot, but do check them out before your next purchase
  2. hello, my tank is in need of a new light system. when i first purchased 5 years ago, the big thing was with long tube globes (yes, i really know nothing ) the actual fixture has now broken and hardly working efficiently. so it's time to buy a brand new unit. i don't want anything too bright, but i want to maintain the good health of my plants. i have anubias on driftwood. 3 piglets bask in it's shining glory for about 16 hours a day. any suggestions? links are very welcome. i have never had LED lights before, but i will be honest with you, the tube lights i have had in the past, i really enjoyed and currently enjoy having. but please share with me what is best as a quick ebay search had me feeling queasy with too many options.
  3. i expect that situations will remain like this for the next few months. since i am waiting for the completion of our new warehouse and cannot accommodate these goofballs any differently for the time being. long awaited update (this is all the stock i currently have). thanks for watching
  4. EDIT: NO LONGER FOR SALE 2 decent size Pearlscale very healthy goldfish, imported from Japan, one blonde confirmed male, one red and white confirmed female.. $400 or nearest offer. they have been in my care for about 4 months. they are disease and parasite free, very active and are incredibly social. i will accept offers from established aquarists who can offer these two a minimum of 40 gallons space (the pair) and have adequate filtration. i will accept offers from non goldfish people only if they are prepared to set up an appropriate environment for them and agree to maintain them as per my instructions. pick up only, i do not ship live stock. so, if you're a Melbournian and would like some awesome quality pearlscales. please contact me or respond to this thread.
  5. allo i made a tutorial about a week ago on what steps i took to remove algae (green and brown/black) from my tank. i can happily say that 7 days on, we're looking exactly as we were on the day of the big clean. here's my video. i hope it gives you some ideas for your own tanks.
  6. hi guys, just letting you know that member Ree put me onto vitamin grocer AU, who is an American company that supplies Australia. 14 days ago, i ordered 2 flasks of Kanaplex, they arrived in 10 days time. Ree also ordered a flask and hers arrived on time too. here is the link, good luck https://www.vitamingrocer.com.au/Seachem-Laboratories-Kanaplex-5gm-p/307834.htm
  7. hello, my 10 year old fantail, Rocky is quite ill at the moment. i was very sure that she was refusing food and giving up, but i was wrong. i prepared syringe food for her, and she surprised me by accepting the feed. i hope this gives her enough strength so that she can receive her medicines well and begin to recover. anyhow, i hope this video that i have made, is helpful to you at your time of need.
  8. hello, it's been a while since i posted an update. i haven't been around a great deal due to work and family commitments. hopefully that will change soon here are my guys. thanks for watching
  9. she's been growing this 'yoop yoop' for a while now.. i think it's about as big as it's going to get. i don't think she's unhealthy but i just wanted to share this moment of crazy with the crazies all the other marks she developed during her first few spawning moments... they never disappeared and they haven't caused her any health issues. enjoy!
  10. under 25 pics.. please enjoy you're probably wondering where ballerina is? she had an argument with the driftwood overnight and came out second best here are her injuries and now you're probably wondering where Rocky is? Rocky had an attack of the flukes.. she's being treated in QT. it's been a few weeks and she's made awesome progress. here's how she's looking as of last night: this is an instructional vid which talks aussie.. for QT purposes. but you can see Rocky's progress at the beginning and at the end of the video thanks for watching
  11. sorry, it's an 8 min video. but it's all ballerina's fault.. really.. :D

  15. Hello friends, Euthanizing has always and will always be a very sensitive topic. unfortunately, one of my fish needed to be Euthanized. i checked our site and realized there was no video demonstration on how this is done. so, whilst i was contemplating if i should euth my fish and as he took a turn for the worse, i decided that i would make the video to demonstrate how i managed this successfully & humanely. Please understand, there are many illnesses that can be treated, many fish that look like they are knocking on death's door and depending on what the health issue is, some fish can and have been brought back to good health from these conditions with the dedicated help of our wonderful Moderating Team and our Experienced Members/Friends. please do seek help by posting a thread before you decide to euthanize your fish. ********************************************************************************************** ***WARNING*** The following video demonstration shows a fish being sedated and then receiving an anesthesia overdose. Please do not play the following video if you feel that seeing a fish being Euthanized will affect you in any way. **********************************************************************************************
  16. Hi friends 3 days ago I noticed a small white fluff on my ranchu's wen. I thought it might have not been anything since I had just treated with powder prazi & it may have been a prazi granule since they do not fully dissolve (that I have noticed). so.. I checked back a few hours later and the spot had become bigger and fluffy. when I removed him from the tank, the fluffy fell out and a shallow hole with surface blood at the opening was observed: in setting up QT, which only took about a half hour or 40 mins, another site appeared, just below that one and closer to the eye once I noticed this, I contacted dnalex for his opinion and waited a reply: about another 4 hours passed where I saw another site forming on the left that looked bigger than the one on the right, alex had responded, QT was up and we were ready to treat.. here's the left side site: we both agreed, it was nothing more serious than a superficial bacteria forming a surface infection. and so we agreed to commence treatment with Tri-Sulfa (if anyone in AU needs this medicine, please PM me, I have plenty ) as well as some Metronidazole added to the water. the following morning, I checked on Mr. CC and the left site was looked worse but from how Alex explained it to me, it shows all the good signs of healing in this photo, you can see that both sites on the right have already taken to healing well. this is an interesting photo, you will see how the fluffies just come away from the wound as a long cotton string. they trail the fish round and round the tank until they fall off: I microscoped the cotton like strand to see if there was anything moving.. all I observed were lots of fibres and nothing more: this is ending day 3.. there are no new sites that have presented and the healing process seems to be speedy about 15 hours ago: about 5 hours ago: and a big thank you & happy dance for Uncle Alex and all his wonderful knowledge & guidance. an absolute asset to this community. Thank You my friend we still have a few more days to a week or even more, depending on what pace the finer detail takes to heal.. overall, we're very happy
  17. hello pond gurus never thought I'd be posting in this section of the site.. lol.. ok, so I need some advice I have an old retired fountain that is concreted into my front yard. this 'fountain' pond is what started me in the goldfish hobby so many years ago. during my 'ignorant' stage to which I was fortunate enough that nothing died..lol.. the pond is concrete, was running for about 12 years and has been retired for about 10 years now. it has cracks which have made it through to the outside, but I can seal those with some repair cement and that will be fine. what concerns me is the inside. so, my question is, is there a paint on sealant I can use on the inside of the pond that is safe for goldfish? can anyone direct me to this product by providing links? I really do not want to use a pond liner due to the fact that I have to make a donut and then I don't know if it will leak water between the pond wall and the pond liner (a risk I am not prepared to take). if there is no goldfish safe sealant, I will not be using this feature again and will most likely have it removed. as it is not a dug out hole, it will basically be concreted over and I will not have any outdoor fish again. here is what it looks like, currently.. now, as you can see, there is some sealant in there. our garden keeper (very many years ago) after our fish were given away.. when we came back from Europe, I entertained keeping single tails out there again and asked him if he could seal the walls of the fountain's base. he used something and I was unsure if it was goldfish safe. so, I left it in there for a few weeks, only to find that even with the water running, the sealant began bubbling and lifting. either he filled it whilst the sealant had not dried enough or it might have been the wrong sealant.. this was about 10 years ago I look forward to your replies
