PostSubject: Hi from Sydney   Sat Jun 19, 2010 8:17 am

Hi everyone,

I've just finished my last round of exams at uni where I studied marine biology and now I thought I'd look for a new forum since plecofanatics went down. I worked at St.George Aquariums in Sydney for a while and I've been working at Sydney Aquarium for a while now. I've been breeding bristlenose catfish just as a little hobby, never had too much time for it while I was at uni but I might get more serious now that I'm graduating. I've been successfully breeding my common bns for about a year now and my peppermint bns which I bought as sub-adults (to save money) have bred for the first time about 6 weeks ago and the female looks likes shes ready for round 2.

Hey and welcome to the forum!

Good to have another biologist on here! where did you study? I have a few llinks to people round there.

Good luck with the Peps too. If you ever find youself with an excess female let me know. I have two males, both caved up and waiting for a mate but alas there is none Sad

Yeah I studied at UOW, just finished my final exams and maybe going to do my honours starting in August if I get accepted. I was lucky with my peps they were both sold to me as 'sub-adults' and I got both for $60 each from different breeders, The male was definately a male but I wasn't 100% about the female cause she has quite a lot of bristles until she blew up like a balloon and a few weeks later I had my first batch of fry haha. I only have the pair cause they were so cheaper relatively as I am obviously a broke uni student, I will enjoy actually earning some money now, moving out and having more room to breed some more fish, that is if I dont get into honours.

Do honours mate, sriously. Increases you earning potential and you are 4 times more likely to get a job in the 4 months following your degree. Especially in marine biology, thats a hard to crack field! Sure its another year of being a poor uni student but its worth it in the long run.

Good work with the peps too, that should sort out a bit of extra income for you while you do your honours. There, sorted, you will do honours and sydney will have peps. easy cheers

sorry, but i'm well into academic life Smile
