Aiming to share information and experience in keeping and breeding cichlids, Rainbowfish,
& other native Australian fishes.  
I have closed my small fish hatchery, ending years of a hobby in aquaculture.  WHY?  Simply, the power costs became too high following the privatisation of the power industry in my home State of South Australia.

I keep this site as an educational resource for all those who have enjoyed it in the past and for new folk who come across it.
Happy fish keeping.  Enjoy these notes.
