G'day PCS crew. It's me, Dano. I moved to the U.S. with my family almost 5yrs ago. Just stopped by to say howdy yo!
To all the die hards that I used to know; Dave (Ice), Ray, Az, Riggers, Daz, Tony, Scotty, Brad, Alex, Werdna, Krystal, and more, I send my greetings from abroad!
I have 1 tank here, a 6x18x20 stocked with 9 F1 cypho Kapampa, 7 Orange lelupi, 5 juli regani, 2 trets, and 2 black calvus.
Hope you're all doing great. Of course my Aussie presence here is helping "make America great" again, lol 😂😂
Catch ya's around again sometime.
Dano

Welcome! You would be taking advantage of the dollar per gallon sales I think they have??

Thx mate. Yea they have $1/gal sales about 3-4 times per year but usually only on sizes 55gal (standard 4 footer) and below. I have had my years of multitank fish keeping and I'm content now with just the 1. I change my fish every yr or 2 to keep it interesting. Fish prices are crazy cheap here compared to back home. I got those 9 × F1 Kap's (10-15cm) shipped to the airport nearest me for $400 total. When I left Australia F1 zaire fry at 3cm were $65-85 a piece.
Anyhoo thx for the re-welcome mate 👍

Yes, different market on prices (all relative though I guess - wouldn't like the pay cut!). I like to visit the US forums to see what the trends and new stuff is, but happy with tank here and good shops down the road. Mine is a planted, community tank though so fairly stable until the re-scape bug hits.

G'day Az,
Great to hear back from you mate. Sadly there are not any decent aquarium shops in Toledo where I live. I have purchased almost all of my fish privately. There is a great market for private sales in the states and shipping seems pretty easy, though I have never sent shipped fish, only received shipped fish. There are some good stores in the Cincinnati area where my in laws live. Will to post some pics next time I go down 👍
Bless you and yours mate!
