They are wild guppy's, they were released back in WWII to combat mozzies & they are definitely stunning. :victorious:

True guppies are just as cute as endlers! :encouragement:

That's some good pictures you took of them Wayne.

How do they compare to endlers in size? Are they just as tiny?

I like these guppies just as much as I like my endlers, They are all about the same size as the endlers, just beautiful little fish.This particular line comes from Barneys Springs up NQ near karanda. Bob found them in a fairly isolated area. We know that they are very likely not to have had any contact with other forms of Guppies like the wild types found in coastal areas. and have been in the area for at least 60 years. They have started to breed well for me now so I should have some to spread around to members fairly soonRegardsWayne

I think somewhere in the handbook it says that these vehicles are not suitable to use as a 4x4 and bush bashing is definitely out.:cower:

Yep all the bad words were directed to my self

It went to nearly the drivers door, I have to drain the Diff, gas tank and clean it, no where near the motor so all good.

I think a Army Duck just may be an overkill LOL, it would scare the Crocs

Dirt boat ramps are no good without a 4x4

Bob

Ben one of the rocks that had Gobies one them stopped it from going all the way

My Dad live's on a property up the blue mountains, had a V8 Landcruiser 4x4 for years claiming he'd be stuffed without it.

Traded it in for a Honda Jazz, still does river crossings and the winding mud road all the way down the valley.

Just goes to show you don't need a 4 wheel drive for everything.

LOL try telling that to the idiot next door to me with the Porsche Cayenne Turbo for the trip to woolies.

      Indeed a good video. Except for his spelling of Desolved in TDS (should be Dissolved) I could not have done any better.

      Yes of course! Forgot about high Nitrates, and of course illness. But we probably need to clarify "low temps" for anyone new to the hobby. Winter months can see water temps fall below the shrimp's preferred temp range. It might not be detrimental to their health but it does slow their metabolism down. The remedy for low temps isn't to just give them high temps either, it needs to be within their ideal preferred range for that specific shrimp, eg Neo Caridina or Caridina or Sulawesi. I have known some people to have shrimp (cherries) survive our Australian winter out in ponds. So they can tolerate fairly low temps for an extended period.

      Also No3 , low Temp , and bacteria infections.

      This is a very good video on the basics if you are new to shrimps. It is called 'How to breed shrimp', not sure why as it is generally everything and a very good  and clear video guide?.

      I find the wrong water parameters for the type of shrimp to be a big factor for lethargic shrimp. It's usually the first sign that something is not right. Any measurable amount of Ammonia, can also cause this behaviour.  Moulting is also a big factor in shrimps being inactive. Right before and right after the moult they hide and usually don't move. The moulting process is very strenuous on the shrimp, and I find protein rich foods (eg bloodworms) helps a ton.
