G'day to you M8 and nice to know I'm not the only one in Adelaide....and a friend of mine works for Puratap.....never stops ha ha.
I've just started with a 'sudo Blue Planet' 70L tank I got off Gumtree and had it running a week, just introduced a couple of plants and five guppies from Hilltop Aquariums, going to leave it a couple of weeks more to settle before introducing some bottom feeders.

Hahaa classic That's great! Is this your first tank? I know where hilltop aquarium is. I was a bit disappointed with their selections. How is it now? Have you been to seaview aquarium? They usually have decent stock and often have something on the unusual side. I went there on Saturday and they had some nice little double red cockatoo dwarf cichlids.

Yes first tank and so far so good, the guppy s still smiling. You're right that Hilltop is a bit small, well compared to the one on Anzac, but they are friendly and knowledgable which is what I need. I will give the Seaview one a go when it comes to adding to mine in a few weeks time. All I will say about Adelaide is thank goodness for Puratap

Looking forward to choosing friends for the guppy s, some bottom feeders and I quite like the look of those red cherry shrimps

Mad Melbournian here !!!

Hello fellow Aussies

In the process of upgrading to a 5' x 2' x 2' tank ... selling off my 4' stand & hood after a mystery power/heater failure resulted in me losing my 5 year old Oscar Jaws RIP

So ... always had under tank canister set up and had a small 40 ltr trickle filter as back up & sick bay.

Hubby likes the look of curved glass Juwel tanks with an "in tank" filter systems. Anyone got one? What do you think?

Personally I want a tank with a sump, so opinions wanted!! We do both want a big tank, easier to keep stable and we both want BIG fish tho undecided on Natives or Tropical ... hit me with your wisdom people!

Hey Red260z Guess there's not a lot of wisdom around to hit you with Hahaaa. I've had no experience with either bow fronts or sumps. There is probably a better forum here to discuss these matters. Have look through the other forums. You will probably have better luck if you post extra threads.
Sorry I couldn't help and very sorry about Jaws That's sad when you lose a pet you've had a while.

I have just realised that the Seaview Aquarium is the one we went to on Anzac and I agree it has a massive selection and always very busy, a beautiful selection of fish too.
