  1. I think it is Cardinal Plant. Native of North America. The majority of stem plants sold in the shops are grown emersed and will eventually rot or if they do grow will head straight up unless pinched out. While they are cheap to buy compared to other aquatic plants it ends up being cheaper in the long run to spend your $$ and buy more expensive truly aquatic plants. If you spend some time learning to grow these you will likely recoup some of the cost if you sell the surplus. Best advice - ask heaps of questions about what you intend to buy, if necessary go away and research what you have been told and then come back and purchase. Or. take photos and ask on this forum.
  2. I am unable to help with where to catch them as I have never caught and kept natives. If you do decide to catch them, do so with the knowledge that once a native has been captured and kept it is unable to be released back to either the same place or somewhere different.
  3. I closed down my tanks two years ago and hoped to be going to start up again but it is not to be. I'll keep listing over the next few days so feel free to ask if you are wanting something in particular. Heaps of gear as listed below, most of it marine equipment but could easily be used for freshwater set ups. Make an offer on it as I am moving house. Black Aqua One 28 -32mm tubing x 6 metres - used for marine water changes Black Aqua One 28 - 32mm tubing x 5.3 metres - used for marine water changes 200 litre black storage barrell with screw on lid. Used for storing RO water but will need a good clean out. Hailea immersible pump HX500 model - fits the black aqua one tubing above. Used to pump the water through to the house for marine water changes. Brine Shrimp sieves - set of 4 I'm in Epsom Auckland and pick up as courier is not viable in the current climate.
  4. No question is ever stupid Welcome back - I'm currently in the own no fish stage.
  5. Have you looked on the plant database at the top of the page? Swords can be very difficult to ID unless they flower. https://aquariumworld.nz/databases/1-plants/
  6. I was about to recommend Stockers, but then I read they no longer stock it. Try trademe?
  7. Livingart - you should run DIY fish keeping classes.
  8. The trick will be trying to get a courier company to pick up in the afternoon rather than earlier in the day. Perhaps you could arrange it through a local shop?
  9. Six days isn't that long but are your test kits within expiry still? Give the flakes sitting on the substrate a good stir up and see if that provides the impetus for an ammonia increase.
  10. NZRK Capitations list and payment for caps and levy put through today.

    Heater problem

    Whitespot has a 21 day cycle so bringing it down slowly as is happening won't be detrimental in that respect and will be less stress than dropping it rapidly. It's good to see you are still keeping fish after all this time

    Heater problem

    Is it actually coming on? Could it be your house is too warm and that is keeping the temp up? Was the tank at 26 before you turned it up?
  13. Have you tried the likes of Hollywood Fish Farm, Mt Roskill or Albany. They generally have some stock of anubias, ferns etc - the ones that grow well with CO2 injection.
