    I just moved house and had some tropical fish losses which is unusual as I have moved before no issues.

    Anyway I am now down to 1 red stripe rainbow tropical fish and I do not want to rebuild my aquarium at this time, nor do I really want to run a small tank for 1 fish.

    So if anyone wants a healthy full grown rainbow, pickup is welcome in Erskine Park Sydney. :)

    Hello everyone,

    I am shutting down my tank (temporarily) and need to get rid of everything non-major in it.

    This includes:

    ~20 Pristella maxillaris (X-Ray Tetra)
    ~Couple of remaining Inpaichthys kerri (Blue Emp. Tetra)
    ~Few Otocinclus sp., maybe more. These guys are like 5 years old and going strong.
    ~One lone unidentified Tetra that was a stowaway that is lucky to have his life.
    ~10+ Corydoras caudimaculatus that are also about five years old.

    I'm too lazy to count them because they hide quite well and they're in a 6x2x2.

    I am giving these fish away, but it's not a case of first-in-best-dressed, I'll decide where they go and into what setups. Maybe even an interview process, since there's a decent amount of money worth of fish there. :thumbup:

    Pickup only, Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast.

    I would have loved your corydoras if you were in Melbourne! Good luck with it, hope you find a good home.

    Hi Japes. See how you go with interest a little closer to home, but I'd be interested in your fishys. I've got a number of tanks including a 700 litre beauty they'd love! Probably won't be able to pick them up though for two weeks as I've got visitors coming this weekend.

    Does anyone in Adleaide keep Phantom Glass Catfish?

    I picked up one the other day, on information that they'd be fine as a solo fish..
    It looked so cool, and with the reassuring info, I didnt bother looking up any details on it

    I think he's a bit lonley in my tank, and I dont currently have the capacity to add any enough to make him happy.

    He's maybe 2 inches long. *also may not be a "he"


    I'd be happy to trade for something like a couple of bumblebee gobys? Or may consider something, not nippy, that suits a tropical menagerie tank :eek:

    I might just buy another tank and another 5-30 glass cats :leet:

    I dont want this feller to be ronery, if only i'd done a little research :/


    EDIT:

    The missus did a PWC while I was at work... and either she sucked him out, or he's made a nice home in the new plant.
    I looked for him for a solid 20 mins earlier... no luck!

    See what tomorrow brings :lol:

    I have two white clouds available if anyone would like them. They're very strong and hardy fish, the last two left.

    Pickup in Narre Warren.

    WTB: Aqua One Aqua Reef 400 hood

    I know this is a longshot but I was wondering if anyone had a stock Aqua One Aqua Reef 400 hood with lights, as many people switch them out if doing marine. If so send me a pm.

    I'm in Adelaide (southern suburbs) and have 3 glass catfish. He/she is welcome to join mine if needed. Nothing to trade yet but in a few months I hope to have some plant cuttings & java moss.

    Also just added a bunch of peppered cories so hopefully they start reproducing soon enough!

    I reckon that my mate has that model, and upgrading his lights soon. I was speaking with him about it today.

    Don't think it'd be a give-away though.

    Anyone have any excess plants that they want to donate? Want to spam my tank with plants but dont exactly want to be paying a fortunate to fish shops.
    I'm in Melbourne, wouldnt mind paying postage either.
