    The green water is algae Green pond water is caused by tiny floating algae, which grow explosively. Additional effects are low CH value, high pH value and stagnation in growth of oxygen producing plants. Green pond water frequently occurs in newly built ponds containing water rich in food. https://pondaquariumproblemsolver.co.uk/problem/blagdon/green-water-2/
  3. Probably a loose connection somewhere is the only tjong i can think of.
  4. Hi Vicki good to see you are still doing the animal thing lol to answer your questions What kind of frogs would do best in the Far North of nz? Our house can get very warm in summer. Both green and golden bell, and southern bell will handle the far north caresheet here https://aquariumworld.nz/databases/22-Tropical FWFishallowedinNZdatabase/1850-Green-and-Golden-Bell-Frog What kind of water to land ratio is ideal for them, and what kind of filters are recommended? A small bowl will suffice so land as general environment has good humidity, about 30% water if spawning Also how many frogs are best to keep? Are they social or is 1 happier? They get on okay if similar sizes but big frog is always capable of eating little frog A small filter just to keep some movement in the water works well
  5. Vinegar may help your situation https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2014/02/140225101501.htm#:~:text=Summary%3A,international team of researchers reports.
  6. Yes without, have edited it thanks
  7. What you are proposing will definitely work, they are the best escape artists and finding their way into filters off limit areas etc. Having access to 3D printer will help with tight fits on structure and support ledges on the walls to avoid collapses. Can probably get away without heating and minnows make good tank mates Search in the reptile/amphibian forum for some previous builds

  9. Yes social media is for instant gratification, every man and his dogs opinion and a few good answers lost in a parade of misinformation lol We still have a lot of traffic on the site but not a lot of interaction sadly
  10. These are for sale but I did this mainly to see if it would comply with Facebooks "no live animal sales" rule They allow links to an outside link and the FNZAS is a legal entity

  13. Giant vallisneria and straight vall have been banned https://aquariumworld.nz/databases/1-plants/188-Vallisneria-australis https://aquariumworld.nz/databases/1-plants/189-Vallisneria-gigantea Twisted is okay though https://aquariumworld.nz/databases/1-plants/190-Vallisneria-spiralis
  14. Yes sadly many stories perpetuated through social media and if someone disagrees a witch hunt starts and people get burned at the stake. It is like the school yard where they all rally to the call and harangue some poor unfortunate soul who just wanted a simple answer to a question
  15. Saddens me too, it is one example of how the world has changed I am worried for our grandchildren and wonder how many more generations humans will last

  18. Sorry but fertilisation needs to happen at the time the eggs are laid there is a local club in your area search facebook for Waikato Aquarium Society
  19. One possibility is lymphocystis which can mean the fish will recover over time in clean water and no stress.
  20. A little light reading LOL Activities like pet shops, non-commercial domestic aquaponics, and ponds: do not need a fish-farm licence do not need to be registered as a fish farmer. https://www.mpi.govt.nz/fishing-aquaculture/aquaculture-fish-and-shellfish-farming/setting-up-a-land-based-fish-farm/
