In Topic: New Tank Journal

I miss tank journals and some of the stuff that used to go on here. A real shame that the brains trust decided Facebook was a better option… might be more traffic but if it’s just crap like EY and mixed peacock IDs for the Gumnuts then what’s the point?

Rant over…. For now.

That is a nice tank. I wish I could make a tank look that good :-(
Cardinals and harlequins look great in big numbers.

Hi,

 

WA have a noxious species list you can find it on the following page:

https://www.fish.wa.gov.au/Sustainability-and-Environment/Aquatic-Biosecurity/Translocations-Moving-Live-Fish/Pages/Noxious-Banned-Fish.aspx 

 

Qantas and others can fly boxed fish for you. Obviously they need to be packed appropriatly. Airlines have been a bit weird about flying pets since COVID... I dont really get the reasoning...

https://www.qantas.com/au/en/travel-info/baggage/travelling-with-pets.html 

 

Anything that you plan on bringing over must be inspected by quarantine officers upon arrival and prior to leaving Perth Airport. This is easy... Just call them up and let them know when your fish will be landing in Perth... They may or may not ask for flight numbers. It costs about $60.... Link below should tell you what you need to know.

Hope that helps.

Saw a butis in a reef tank a couple of years ago, belonged to another forum member.

Probably ok if you acclimate them carefully... who knows? like anything aquatic, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. Personally I don’t think they would add any value to a reef tank and are another nitrate source (small though it might be).

Yep these guys are euryhaline, believed to be unnecessarily diadromous.

Found in estuaries and mangroves along pretty much the whole east coast... Their preference is definitely on the fresher side though.
