  • Barclaya longifolia "magenta"

    Barclaya longifolia "magenta"



    Barclaya longifolia is a beautiful plant that was once common but you don't see much now. It's known for having a red and green variety. The green variety is a pale limy green with pink undersides to the leaves.

    I put out the call for green or red and got some seeds from a forum member for this colloquially named "magenta" variety, named because its a green that has more red that your typical green. The green tops of the leaves are a bit darker than the typical...

    Galaxias fuscus - Barred Galaxias

    I shot these little videos a month or so ago, hope you enjoy them. The beautiful Barred Galaxias (Galaxias fuscus) is a critically endangered small native freshwater fish found in the headwaters of the Goulburn River in Victoria. Due largely to it's very restricted distribution and the adverse impacts of introduced predatory trout, the few remaining populations of Barred Galaxias are heavily fragmented and isolated from one another. This means that single populations are particularly vulnerable ...

    CO2 Cylinder Capacity and EOTD

    I cant think of a good title, but hey, mods feel free to change: Hopefully this helps a few people out. Firstly, one cannot simply determine how much CO2 remains in the tank based on your high side pressure gauge reading. The reason is due to the various phases in which CO2 is present in a pressurised environment at certain temperatures, and can easily be seen with the following temperature-pressure phase diagram: Here are some useful conversions first to help you out: Fahrenheit to Centigrad...

    Live Rock Critter Identification

    Live Rock and the various creatures on it was the single biggest pull for me to try out a reef aquarium after owning several freshwater setups. The amazing diversity of life in a marine tank and the factor of "not knowing" what it is that is living in there is something that can't be replicated by your standard tropical freshwaters. Whether to mark pests for removal or out of scientific interest, this guide to identifying some of the more common hitchhikers on yo
