Very nice - I like the layout and air bubbler going as well (although I was bad and used to run pirate chests, etc when I was a kid).

As per usual, can we kindly ask all bags of fish / plants are well bagged so no water (or lava rock) escapes [emoji3] Thanks!!

Second home? [emoji3] [emoji3]

The January meeting of the Perth Cichlid Society is on Sunday, January 13th, 2019.

logo.png  PCS Family BBQ Day. Is1yY3.jpg
Come and join us for a day of fun, food and fish talk. Bring your family and enjoy a nice bit of BBQ on us. Have a chit chat about aquariums, enjoy the park and the beach. This year's PCS Members Family BBQ Day will be held at the Rockingham Foreshore - Grain Terminal BBQ Park on the beach. Enjoy a day with the kids in the park and on the beach. There are tables, an awesome grassed BBQ area and plenty of room for the kids and a picnic blanket.

That's right. Come and grab a plate of food free from the PCS. Sit and have a chat about fish, ponds, aquariums or anything else you fancy. We will be firing up the BBQ and offering some meaty morsels along with some fresh salads and coleslaw. We'll have potato salad and buns also. The venue is public space, so bring anything else along with you and please remember it is a 'Family' Fun Day, there will be children around. PCS will have some cool drinks to have with lunch.
We will be having a bit of beach cricket and footy for all ages to play and keep you busy. Don't forget your bathers and beach towel!
Bring along your dive gear if you wish to go on a short dive along the grain terminal to see awesome fish life.

All PCS members are welcome. Please bring your immediate family along. Plates of food are limited, please RSVP to a committee member with how many people you are bringing along before Tuesday 8th January so we can organise the meals (or post numbers below). If you are bringing more than 3-4 guests special arrangements need to be made, please PM a committee member and speak to us before you come along. Hope to see you there Sunday.
Doors open at 11:00am until 3:00pm at the Rockingham Foreshore - Grain Terminal Park area.

Whoo-hoo!! Ordered.

#366932 8 Years Later And A New 6X2X2

Posted by Delapool on 02 December 2018 - 06:01 PM

Specs from the Eheim website are; Filter volume 18.00 l Container volume 23.00 l
In comparison the Fluval FX6 (The other filter I was considering) has a filter volume of 5.9L. So three times size comparison which is huge imo. Should also mean less frequent maintenance which is a plus for me haha.
Also forgot to mention I added the substrate and I did end up going for Garnet sand over regular white sand as you also recommended Jules  ;)

That’s great size! The aqua one I have is around that volume but no auto-prime or anything :(

Don’t think I’d like it long term but for something different..


Also it’s birthday month - a nice card from my Aunty.

Another couple before getting photo-bombed. Couldn’t get a really good shot but he wasn’t shifting for anything!

Parcel arrived! Always exciting in case they packed a fish tank by accident.

I think the number of the tunze refers to how many times it will get pulled apart :)

Bolbitis in foreground - not even sure where to start pruning it. Thrown out most java fern.
