#367056 Fs: Steatoncranus Casuarius (Block Heads) Breeding Pairs

Posted by Westie on 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 :)

Well I must say that Im very impressed with the crew at foam sales. I had a quick scab of the good guys skip bin with no luck, so went to foam sales in booragoon. I told them I need an underlay for a 4x2x2 and they recommended the thickness and cut it to the exact size for the princely sum of $8.

I've never been a huge fan of moss. I really like bolbitis. Easy to grow and looks great.

I ended up going to Aquotix to get this sorted.

#366638 Adhesive Film As A Background?

Posted by Westie on 01 October 2018 - 10:27 PM

Well tomorrow I’ll sort new lids for this tank, then will give the glass a good clean with white vinegar and a sponge. Then after a final rinse I’ll have a go at putting this background on. Will post photos once I’ve done it (unless it looks really bad).

Easy mate, they volunteer their own time. Plus they’re probably Eagles supporters which means they’re half pickled right now.
Pretty awesome how they liked my post too.

#366617 Adhesive Film As A Background?

Posted by Westie on 27 September 2018 - 10:24 AM

I picked up a roll of PVC self adhesive film from Bunnings for $4.50 this morning. Went with "cork" as it was the closest thing to a plain colour I could find. Thinking about going red aquarium soil so the colour of easy to grow green aquarium plants will contrast well against the colour of the background and the substrate. Although it could just end up a plain white colour on the back of the adhesive stuff. Still better than no background, or one of those stick on backgrounds that get moisture in them. 

this is the soil I'm considering going with

Any reason these two accounts keep liking every post on PCS? Possible spam accounts, as I havent seen them post anything
