#367979 Any News On Upcoming Events?

Posted by Westie on 02 May 2022 - 10:40 AM

COVID canned any plans we had in place, but Committee is now looking at getting a swap meet happening for our next meeting.

We will no longer be having the meetings at Atwell College, and hope to secure something central to our members. 

I tried to book a hall in South Perth but it's fully booked on Saturdays at the moment. Any updates will be posted on the Facebook page as well as this forum once we lock something in.

I’ve always wanted to keep Tropheus but never have. Nice looking fish

#367093 Painting A Background

Posted by Westie on 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.

#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 :)

#366903 Wtb: Foam Underlay For 4X2X2

Posted by Westie on 24 November 2018 - 10:17 PM

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.

#366683 Glass Lid Needed

Posted by Westie on 13 October 2018 - 10:50 PM

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).
