Hi everyone,

I'm currently on a trip in Japan at the moment and I went looking for Aquaforest... Anyways took me and the gf 3 days to find...

So after almost giving up and being very dissapointed we were lucky to stumble across someone who gave us directions straight to it.

So i just thought i would share some photos from the shop!

The second photo could be Red lined Puffers and they occur on Cape York, we do have other Puffers that will live in the right fresh water (hard water)

Nice photos and I bet you are having fun

Most likely the green spot puffer fish. I did see Keysborough Aquarium have them about 3 months ago but just checked and no longer there. If you really want them I'd sudgest to ring Meng and ask him if he can / will reorder them.

And yeah what is that sucker in the first pic of the last lot of pics with the rounded fins looking like some sort or ray? Anyone?... really cool!

It is Sewellia lineolata aka reticulated hillstream loach.

Borneo loaches/suckers are similar in shape but differently coloured.

Fish4fish3 These were the ones I was looking for in Fishchicks but she only had Sewellia sp. "Spotted".

Yeah I remember us looking at them in the bottom corner tank but they weren't as nice looking as this guy. i like the yellow maze on an almost green body too. definately a sucker i will be looking out for! And I'm not one for suckers except the 46's as they are a seriuosly sexy sucker.

I went with the aim of purchasing a few things there but ada and everything is pretty much on par with prices here so no difference really

Umm it was so hard to find took me 3 days literally, it is near a shopping complex called 'lumine' not sure if its 'lumine' or 'lumine 2' because im pretty sure there is two. its in like the corner of the centre as well which makes it even harder to find!

If we are talking about Dwarf Puffers they are very interesting creatures... (One main fact that they can eat all snails from your aquarium, hahaha).

Dwarf Puffer fish is my favourite fish.

They are smart and very playful, love them!

      My parents have an aquarium, so I don't know if this will help, but still want to leave a suggestion. They also liked the idea of installing a light strip in it, so they started looking on amazon. I don't know what went wrong, but it broke on the fifth day of use. I think it was a cheap Chinese thing (although the website told me it was waterproof and durable). They asked me for help finding a better option, and I advised them of the smart LED multi-color light strips I used in my car. Being pretty skeptical, my dad still decided to try them. They have been working fine for a month now and don't even flicker. Mom says the fish are happy, lol. I hope my comment was helpful

      It's not looking good. Quarantine any shrimp showing Necrosis, as it can be infectious. Tell us what your water parameters are, and do a heavy water change after that. Increase surface agitation to get more oxygen into the water. A bit of H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide) into the water to increase oxygen might also help the shrimps that have not yet contracted this.

      Sorry to see you have a problem. Try reading the section on 'muscular necrosis' in the below section. You will need to scroll down through it until you see the bold red heading of that description (it is quite a large article covering many problems etc, it is about the 5th item on the first page);   I don't have any personal experience of this but do ask any questions as someone may be able to help. A bit more general info may also  help, your setup, number of shrimps, how long you have had the shrimps, any water parameters you may have etc?

      Hello, I was wondering if anyone here had any first-hand information on these particular pictures. It describes exactly what a few of my shrimp have. The second picture is spot on and most accurate. Thanks

      #4 looks almost like a juvenile female to me, just looking at the abdomen in the top left image, but definitely looks more male in the other two images. The colour suggests it is an adult though, and it’s lacking a clear  so Simon is probably right in thinking it is male, that top left image is just confusing me a bit. If you’re going to get a female, to be sure, make sure it’s got an obvious yellow saddle. That’ll help you know it’s mature as well.
