  6. A message from the President of the FNZAS. In light of recent events around Aotearoa, New Zealand, I wanted to reach out to all clubs to ensure that you are aware you can reach out to your executive should you need anything, we will try and assist in any way possible. Contact can be made via the www.aquariumworld.nz forums or via email, if you are a member and you cannot get access to the internet my cellphone number has been sent out to clubs via email, you can text and I will load a post on your behalf. If you think there is something specific the FNZAS can assist with, please let me know asap. We know that some areas are going through a period of great devastation; and we want you to know we are thinking of you and helping from a distance in any way we can. For your aquatic pets continue to do as much as you can. Turn over water to help keep oxygen in the water. Let the tanks cool down slowly by wrapping them in blankets if you can. Reduce feeding to help keep water parameters in check. If you are able to, do a small water change daily. We understand that areas have no power, no cellphone coverage and roads are blocked and damaged. Please ensure you and your whanau(family) are safe first and foremost.

  9. Ohh Caryl Once they are a month old if there's 10 submit a breeding register!
  10. I honestly couldn't even tell you what one is... but the societies act is so archaic that is why it was rewritten last year and why I posted this as someone is working on our rewrite draft 😀

  20. Hi Fishboy, I have a fish room in Upper Hutt if you need to rehome him or switch him for one of my many bristlenoses you are more than welcome, if he really is a bit like you say we have Multiple tanks so he can go into one of his own if needed.
  21. rule of thumb is no more then a third total filter media at once. As Caryl said, if you change it / them over a few weeks it should be okay Are you sure its cotton wool and not the white filter sponge, which you may be able to clean in some old tank water and put back in and then replace when it starts to impact your filters flow
  22. hi Bert - I think Maximum Pet Supplies in Naenae have some, if not I will see if one of Upper Hutt Aquarium Society Members have any to spare and ill get them to comment on this thread. Thanks
  23. you can try house plants such as pothos, philodendrons and Syngonium with just roots in the water ( from my experience goldies wont eat the good roots) some of my nicest vines are growing out of fish tanks
  24. try reach out to some of the reptile and amphibian rescues, I know of one in Christchurch and one in Wellington (both on facebook)
