OH OH also guess what my banggai cardinals are breeding! the male has a mouth full of eggs and is hanging out near the back of the tank and chasing anything that goes near him! hopefully a few baby's survive! guess i gotta pump the food at my flame angel cause he is pretty much the only one who would eat the baby fish.

 

 

this might be a stupid comment but though about putting them in a fry net when they hatch?

 

 

Got a few quote today from around the place, looks to be about 240 for the tank pains of glass then i will have to put them together myself, otherwise its up around 450-500.

 

Joys of a custom tank.

 

Then i will have to build my own sump.

 

Sidd i saw you where giving away frags of your leather on the reefuge, want to try send one via mail?

Spudnic get someone to build a tank for you, really not worth having to do it yourself for what someone can do it for!

Shame you cannot just get a standard size. A 4x1.5x1.5 cost me $200 lol

If I have any left over I will send it by mail. But there is always a risk with sending it via post.

Picked up a toxic green helio over the weekend and while there spotted a little clam in the corner, so they now both reside in my tank. Need to get rid of my huge brown and white helio now to open up some space

I flicked through that thread late last year, thought it was pretty cool till I saw this 20,000G tank in a guys house which is a 20x better build quality and he built pretty much everything himself, even pictures in their of building the skimmers in his kitchen

I have a 5 foot tank with two mental case oscars, a black and an albino. Kill everything I have put in with them, given up now just putting in feeder fish and a few special treats like gold fish!

In the last 4 months they have laid about 6 batches of eggs, none have lasted more than 12 hours before getting eaten again! Still don't know if I have a male and female or just 2 females?!

 

Great fish though full of personality!!

Thinking of pulling out the next batch of eggs and trying to hatch them away from the parents

Have had them since fingerlings and are now a good 25cm and quite broad

 

Have spent two years of My life working on/ managing a barra farm here in sa. Studied aquaculture out of school. Have now taken the next logical step forward and work at R. M. Williams! Hahahaha

dam it!!!!!!! HELP!!

 

i went to the local aquarium and they were fresh out of fry boxes, because my Cardinal's have hatched and he is holding atleast 5 baby's in his mouth!!!! but they are getting so big he cant hold them in anymore!

 

now the dude at the aquarium told me i could try and make a "fake urchin" as lo and behold, they didn't have any sea urchins for sale either!!!! so i used up the remainder of my aqua kneed it and found some old BBQ skewers and made the best urchin i could! which is still pretty crappy.

now that was yesterday, and i just saw the male cardinal spit out one baby because there is no room in his mouth! they both were hanging around the "urchin" checking it out, but i guess it wasn't up to his standards as the baby cardinal swam right into my brown torch coral, and he has been hanging there for the past hour!

 

what do i do!!!! ive got some baby brine shrimp in the tank but its probably most likely gonna be eaten by the coral not the baby fish!! the male still has at least 3 baby's in his mouth that i can see, and they are trying to swim out of his mouth, but he keeps gulping and stopping them, but he is really struggling they barley fit!! what to do what to do!! argh!! :sick:

sure is! so cute! bout the size of my pinky fingernail! he has been in his dads mouth for about a week now so i guess he is a week old?

 

apparently they can breed 30 at a time!!!! and the male swims up to the front of the glass, and his mouth is half open, and i can see all the baby's swimming in his mouth trying to escape!!!! its nuts! they are born looking exactly like the parents!!
