  1. Last week
  2. Jumping on for any future readers If you're in the Wellington region and desperate, there is a huge amount in Kapiti. To be specific, Otaraua Park, from the King Arthur drive entrance. Park up and walk to the river. All along that side, particularly in the rocky areas you'll find them at dusk.

    Once we are able to get out and about again we could arrange to get some plants to you as we go to Nelson every 3 months for medical appointments.

    Thanks Caryl, being an admin is a thankless task but I appreciate you responding to me. Cheers and stay safe.
  6. Go on, you know you want to 😉 Just avoid convicts as they take over everything!

    No we don't bother with a newsletter any more as I got sick of writing it with no contributions from other members, or feedback that they actually read it. The internet has made it very difficult for face to face meetings as many seem to prefer to get their information from anonymous sources from the comfort of their house.
  8. Just observe if there are any changes to the problem
  9. Heya, yeah I ended up switching over to Wunder Tonic after the other didn't work but I left them a few days in between just in case. I'm stuck on this one too though, Wunder make their directions painfully vague. It says to add 1ml per 20 liters which I've done, then a 25% water change and 1ml per 30 liters on day three then on day 7 do anther 25% change and add carbon to remove extra medication. But I have no idea what to do between days 3-7 Sorry for the chopping and changing I had a bit of trouble getting hold of my local fish shop guy

    Hi Alanmin, that's a pretty rare plant you have there or at least it doesn't seem to pop up with any frequency. Hopefully we can talk when this is over.

    Thanks Caryl,do they have a newsletter or a way of keeping in touch? When this is over I would love to get a couple of crypts and Anubias from you. I have Glosso, dwarf hair grass, Rotala Wallichii and Alternanthera Reineckii - Roseafolia that are doing quite well at the moment so I will hopefully have some available for people when we get through this.
  12. I have a few Echinodorus horizontalis, one of which I have sold on trademe but have also had to refund their payment as no carriers will cayy to private homes.
  13. African cichlids could be a good option to look at, i set up a tank for them but ended up going for convicts. Maybe time to look at them again
  14. What about African cichlids? Or, if you have plenty of money, marines?

    Gold Ancistrus

    Here is my male gold ancistrus doing his best to isolate himself from his tank mates...
  16. A few killies, American Cichlids, tetras, Red eared sliders and a couple native tanks. Open to anything new
  17. I seem to remember you have had a few different tanks over the years. What have you already tried?

    Your nearest club then would be the Marlborough Aquarium Club but we only have 4 or 5 members and don't have meetings ☹️ Getting plants will now have to wait until the lockdown is over. I am inundated with Crypt affinis and have spare Anubias nana.
  19. Hi all, been a while. I now only have one fish, my beloved Giant Kokopu, but would like to set up another tank or enclosure in the future. Any cool suggestions for fish or replies that would be worth a try would be much appreciated Cheers
  20. It seems like you have cotton mouth which is also called saddle back. What is the brand of treatment you are using and what are the active ingredients?
  21. Heya, I have 10 neon tetras right now but recently added 11 more and a few of them started to show up signs of illness. I haven't been able to find a match online but there was large white/greyish patches on some of their bodies, fins a little bit grey on the end, and one looked to have the start of cotton mouth. So I have put them into quarantine and my local fish shop guy (whom I bought the fish off) told me to use white spot cure on them and hat should clear it up, it's not ich but we couldn't figure out what was wrong since they were healthy one day then like this the next. They were in quarantine for about 2 days before I started medication just to make sure they're alright, and I started just this morning going off what the bottle says, 1mL per 20L of water. It then says to do the same the next day and on the third day do 1mL per 40L. My question is, do I stop after the third day? It seems like not a very long time for a course of medication but I can't find any info anywhere else. Thank you so much
  22. Bloodworms are baby midges and will become midges and fly away. Best to culture blackworms (Lumbriculus) that remain as such.
  23. I think I might have bloodworms growing, in a bin outside, I'm not sure, but they look like bloodworms, and we have bloodworms in nz according to this site, I tried to add vid but not allowed. Has anyone else successfully grown them??
  24. Sorry I'm year or so late... At tiger Tony, re "" "did u mean u bred blood worms?? the temp high & fed frozen brine shrimp, bloodworms & mosquito larvae (which I bred) 3 weeks later (approx) I added another 20 making 30, they spent a week in a plastic tub set up as a quarantine tank (I know thats not long enough).'' I found today iwhat I think are bloodworms in a storage bin outside that I use to breed mosquito lavea, And it seems bloodworms do live in nz, Can't add a file. Sorry I'll try again later
