  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. try reach out to some of the reptile and amphibian rescues, I know of one in Christchurch and one in Wellington (both on facebook)

  7. AGM 2022 Important Information Notice of FNZAS AGM August 20, 2022, 10am (Virtual Meeting) details to follow The FNZAS Executive is calling for nominations for the Executive for the 2022-⁠⁠2023 year. To help people make a choice on becoming an executive we have attached a very brief overview and expectations of each position, please note the position descriptions are out of date and will need to be modernized. Please note we need to ensure that the people who take on positions understand it is voluntary and they will need to commit time to positions and meet minimum requirements. The upcoming years ahead are vital to the FNZAS with the new Incorporated Societies Act being implemented. All positions are deemed vacant therefore incumbents are required to re-⁠submit nominations as in previous years. Patron 2 x Vice Patron President 2 x Vice President Secretary Treasurer Editor Breeding Co-⁠⁠Ordinator 1 – 3 Committee members Anyone seeking nomination must be a financial member of the FNZAS at the time. If the nominee is not attending the AGM we also require written consent to stand for office sent to the Secretary prior to the AGM. No nominations will be taken from the floor, unless there are no nominations/not enough nominations for a particular position. Please send all nominations to secretary@fnzas.org.nz along with a Bio and Photograph prior to 31 July 2022 to allow time for these to be distributed to clubs and their delegates given voting instructions by their members. Remits Please send any remits your club has to secretary@fnzas.org.nz Delegates Clubs have until 31 July 2022 to submit the names of their delegates for conference to me. If you have changed your delegates since your last AGM, and you want your club to have a say at this meeting or be able to vote, it is important that I get this via email prior to 31 July 2022. We don’t want clubs missing out. Attendance Owing to recent changes to our social structure due to Covid 19 effects an all-online AGM will be once again offered to our members. Observers are also welcome. Thank you FNZAS Secretary

  9. We have been working away breeding quietly from 2 fry to get numbers up to a decent amount and have now passed a few trios on to other breeders. But we managed to hatch some old peat and got lucky
