Aquarium Society Of Wa?

12 August 2019 - 10:27 PM

Just wondering if anyone on this forum knows if the Aquarium Society of WA is still functioning?
I really enjoyed meeting all the guys who bred some really cool fish over the years, but didnt keep in touch.

Painting A Background

30 January 2019 - 06:31 PM

During my mandatory Bunnings trip with Mini Me today, I decided to get a paint, a roller, masking tape, and a roller tray. I thought it would be cool to paint the back of a 4 footer I have running in the garage. Previous tank I used an adhesive film and didnt like the end result. This was about the same cost, and I think the end result looks a lot better when looking in to the tank. Heres some photos:

Tools for the job. The small pot of mistinted paint was only $3! Supposed to be white but its more of a light pink

And the child slavery.... oops I mean art project begins here. I taped up the edges with masking tape and let my daughter have fun with a paint roller

And then a few minutes later, the tank is painted like so

Doesnt look overly schmick from behind, but looks great when looking in to the tank from the front, which is what I want

Undecided as to whether we will do some more coats. Im pretty sure that the paint will scratch off easy, so will try not to scratch the back of the tank with anything.

Fs: Steatoncranus Casuarius (Block Heads) Breeding Pairs

10 January 2019 - 11:07 PM

I have two pairs of block heads, each in their own 4 foot tank with fry and I would like to move one pair on to free up space for other fish. $50 for a pair, pick which pair you like out of the two. Comes with cave they spawn in. Pick up from Hammond Park. Can PM photos

And don’t mind my bad spelling of the fish names :)
