Guys working on a project -

Anyone knows of the regulations (links to respective agencies would be fine) governing the export of ornamental fishes from Trinidad. Conversely do you all know of the regulations in countries that import ornamental fish from us?

remember gravel has a smooth surface no pores, and not much surface area, so you may need alot less than you think if you go that route. But gravel more or less limitless so you can always add how much you need lol. When i want gravel, i does go pick up some by small boats, wash and let em sit in the sun, but you look like you need alot more.


Do you bleach and soak it for 48hrs? If not you playing with the lives of your fish.


Nah, been doing it for years, tinfoils turn 15 and the oscar 17 in 2 months time. Anything organic is killed by nature; sun, wind and rain time, soaking in bleach might be more dangerous if you don't ensure any chlorine residue is taken care of. Those people who run bioballs, also have to take other measures to take care of nitrate issues unless it's a natural pond that has mud which has all the goodies to deal with the nasties. Bioballs and potscrubbers have ok surface area but they lack any anoxic environmental feature to facilitate denitrification. I don't think anyone does water changes to their ponds to lower nitrates, so they use some chemical agent and some sort of algae removal whether it be uv/chemical or diatom filtration. The purpose of mechanical filtration and trapping large debris is to isolate and rremove larger particles before it can decompose into ammonia for your biofilter to handle. I recommended the matrix because in low flow, it can host denitrifiers, facultative aerobes and actually save some cost and headache in the future.


Anyone knows where I can get Matrix filter media locally.

Also interested in Nerite snails or Amano shrimp if anyone knows where they are available down here.

Looking for some help with cycling a tank. If anyone has extensive knowledge on the topic & is willing to help, please pm me. Would be greatly appreciated.

Join the group 'Trinidad Aquatic Pets Society (TAPS)' on Facebook. Lots of local experts there (lots of idiots too, but you'll know eventually)

Regarding cycling a tank, there's actually a solution that is sold in pet stores that has beneficial bacteria in it, which rapidly speeds up the cycling process. The normal cycling process takes a couple of weeks, but if you use the solution, it can take a couple of days. Lots of info in the interweb too.

Appreciate the respone. Off of fb a while now. Did a lot of research on the matter. Finding a lot of contradicting results. Guessing there is no "wrong" way & it comes down to personal preference & the situation. With regards to the beneficial bacteria sold, there is never a guarantee that the bacteria survived the shipping, handling & storage processes. Have been considering it though.

Well a sure method is to get some stuff (preferably the gravel or sand) from a cycled tank (one thats been running > a year or so), and put it in your new tank. That material will surely contain beneficial bacteria, which will spread to the other parts and filtration media of your new tank. This process should take less than two weeks.

On side note, I have actually gotten away a few times with just filling up the new tank, adding new filter, décor, and fish, all in the same day, with no negative effects to the fish. But it will depend on the robustness of the type of fish you have. I have cichlids, and they pretty tough, so they can withstand a wide variety of water parameters, and conditions.

That's the plan so far @ seeding the tank with some media from an established tank. Will see how it goes.

i realised most people get away with doing so as long as they don't overstock the tank. Don't intend on doing so either. Will start off slowly & see how the levels read. Thanks again.

Goodstuff Nivek. But a word of advice from someone who has a wee bit of experience with cichlid community tanks, that Butterkoeri is gonna out grow every fish in there, and also wreck havoc on your other fish. Doesn't matter if all of them grow up together, if all of them living good now, or even if there are lots of hiding places, that's a very aggressive fish, and the older they get, the more aggressive they become. I owned a few in my time, and all results were always the same - that fish is the devil LOL. more suited for a pond.
