Bit chilly at the moment isnt it?

How numb do you like your legs?

Imo I would be waiting a couple of months till it warms up a little.

I've been the last couple of weeks, it is freezing. Unless you're a hardened soul i definitely wouldn't go further inland than the city. The coast is bad enough.

I'll give you the same advice i give everyone (which is pretty poor advice usually) open up google maps and look for the blue lines, they're where you want to go. Look up any waterfalls in your area, top of the waterfall is ALWAYS fresh water.

Try to go to areas that aren't downstream of any commercial or industrial runoff,shopping centres or well populated areas. If there is a road right up to where you plan to collect, plan to collect elsewhere, anywhere accessible is over fished.

And finally, take this one with a grain of salt, in terms of fishing, with a fishing licence and approved methods, you are able to collect in national parks.

The reason i say take it with a grain of salt is that nowhere does it say it applies to all national parks, just vague references to some of the ones i've been too that say you can fish.

Hahaha, ok bad rule, that is different. I meant in Sydney itself.

I know a spot way up the blue mountains, drive right down to the river in 50 different spots, will get 100 glassies in 10 minutes at each spot.

I've got waders, with a hole, half way up the leg, never know how deep i need to get before they fill up.

Duct tape, silicone, superglue, tried it all. Yet always at the right depth, there is that little itty bitty ice cold trickle that violates my thigh. Not pleasant. Maybe i should go the whole way and buy a new pair. Anaconda has em for $60, may even splurge out and buy a $80 one :p

Dont be too generous with the spots out your way Gaz - they are jewels that can be easily destroyed. Pick them carefully if you're going to share :encouragement:

Dam I don't miss that cold water KRAP, it is cool in some of the Table land spots about 16c. Most of the lowland places are 20c still.

With that said I will now duck for cover, OH and did I mention that a lot of places have 3 or 4 different species!! now I am really ducking for cover LOL

I suppose you're right Bob - but then again, we're not surrounded by Queenslanders so there is a little upside :barbershop_quartet_

And you don't need a 4WD to get there.

LOL Wednesday will tell, nothing wrong with a bit of friendly banter and I know QLD is better :applause:

I also won't say that I am going collecting for some Crabs and Shrimp out west today and that I am sitting at the computer in shorts and T shirt with the windows open at 5.30am?.

      Mine is a DIY Chiller, as you know a peltier has a hot side and cold side, for the cold side to stay cold, the hot side must be kept cold and with a heatsink and fan to cool it down. My DIY chiller has two sides and two water block. blue aluminum block with tube leading to the outlet of the canister filter and back to the tank to chill the tank water. copper block is to cool the hot side of the peltier, with copper block to the radiator/fan and a water pump looping. The problem is the tube from the water pump came off, apparently the plastic from the pump started to melt and the tube came off and the looping side had no water, so the copper water block stayed hot all the time with heat transferred to the cold side of the peltier also heating the water. since the copper takes time to cool down, most of the heat and the room hot temp had already heat the tank water to about 45 C.

      Try testing it again and see what you get or to confirm that the previous were right, especially the higher Ph reading is all I can recommend! If there is some explanation for the difference hopefully someone will reply and let you know, but I expect there won't actually be a difference if you do it again? Simon

      No that's not normal. But I don't know which tube in your loop had come off. Can you show us?   Yes that would have helped a bit, and at least give KMS more time to have found the issue by turning off the chiller. As I understand, kms has a peltier style chiller, and a tube of the pump had come off, which meant that hot water from the hot side of the peltier flowed back into the tank. So if the chiller was on the same temp controller, it would have turned off the chiller at around 26degC. The tank might have got warmer in his room, but it would have been at a much slower rate, and certainly would not have reached 45degC.

      I'm using the API master test kit with the dropper bottles. I was just very confused at how much more akaline the water was coming out of the filter compared to the water out in the open. I can't imagine how this fluctuating change in pH is going to be beneficial for my crs.
    • sdlTBfanUK
      What type of test are you doing strip or drip? I use drip tests and always ignore the first attempt as no matter how well I clean and keep the test set it is often way out of line. Las time first test was Ph8, second test Ph6. Sometimes first attempt looks ok so I have no idea what is going on????? If you just tried once it may be worth testing again? Simon
