Yea all from the same batch from OBO about a year ago. Been a great batch of SP, havnt had any issues with disease or parasitic problems. But yes, all have grown at strange rates - some have hardly grown at all. I blend up some food and make a cocktail of fine and large pellets to try cater for them all. Hard to tell by the vid but there is a couple that are around plate size now but Im going to hang onto these guys for some time yet.

Holden alloy V6 out of a VS commodore - stock standard. Its basically got a HR front end underneath which the V6 bolts straight into. VS disc brakes all round, modified tail shaft to suit and shortened diff. Had to re-fabricate the entire rear wheel arches, kick panels and trans tunnel. Cut out the tray floor and replaced with timber. Fully re-apolstered. Gun metal grey is the colour of choice.

More pics as requested.

Indexing valves or spider valves are basically a water directional control valve, (correct me if Im wrong here Rupe)... the water entering the valve turns a mechanism inside that can be set to transfer the water to the a port in a given time frame and then the next and so on, the aim is to fill one bed then the next and so on. By the time the first bed is drained the valve would have indexed back to it and start filling again. 15on 45 off works a treat for 4 beds. RupertofOZ sells these valves if you are interested.
