Mattia Matarrese - Lake Tanganyika Tour Talk.

Covid-19 blocking your International Guest list or trip to Lake Tanganyika?

Then don't fear. Mattia Matarrese will take you on a journey to Lake Tanganyika with his tales, photography and video footage from his most recent trip to Lake Tanganyika.

See footage of a newly discovered species, marvel at the wonders of the deep with special deep drone footage, soak in the sights and sounds of Lake Tanganyika right from our air-conditioned club rooms.

You've seen his photo's in Ad Konings' latest Tanganyika Bible, you've read his article in Cichlid News magazine about his new discovery, you've probably even seen him working with fish in the store. Well, come and meet him and ask questions and drool over the photos and tales of a trip of a life time.

He loves eating cichlids in Lake Malawi, he loves breast feeding Lake Tanganyika Otters, he even hangs around Aquotix Aquariums doing as little as possible. Come say hello on Tuesday 9th March..

PCS Raffle table on the night. Loads of items.

Pcs Swap Meet - Sellers Needed

31 December 2020 - 08:33 AM



Below are present details on a weekend swap meet that PCS is planning. Previous swap meet was very successful and tables did a roaring trade.


The swap meet may get pushed into February as we really need just a few more tables of sellers to make it successful. If of interest to have a sellers table could you email myself back on z800w400@outlook.com asap and will send more details.


Sellers Tables don’t need to be anything fancy – last year I sold off a clean out of cupboards. J


Happy fish keeping in the new year,


Regards Craig.





(Copied from PCS FaceBook Group thread - refer to FB post for more details but will keep this web post updated).



PCS is having a Swap Meet on Sunday the 10th of January 10:30am - 1:30pm.


The Swap Meet will be held in our air conditioned club rooms at Atwell College, 201 Brenchley Drive, Atwell, 6164. No need to worry about sun and temperatures.


Sellers book a table to sell any aquarium goods or fish on the day. This will cost $30 for a large trestle table and $15 for a small table. You could even share with a mate if you don't have many items.


We will have Sausage Sizzle, drinks, snacks available for people to purchase and we will provide Paypal and Card facilities for the sellers to maximize sales opportunities. Doors open to sellers only at 9:30am to set up.


There will be a raffle table on the day with great prizes to win. We will draw tickets at half way through at 12pm.


If you wish to become a seller on the day please notify a member of the committee team asap.


Quiet Filters For 5 Gallon Tanks?

14 July 2020 - 02:38 PM

Wondering what small filters people use on 5 gallon tanks? Got a Marina S100 something with motor sitting in water. It’s nice and self-primes but gets this annoying vibrating hum unless sitting just so. Cleaned filter yesterday but no luck. So guess looking for a very quiet, small HOB filter as tank in kitchen. Thanks!
