Yeah, different people, different approach. For me, if the crop damaged because of algae or deficiency, I correct the problem. When the problem solved, new growth will be healthy. Then I would trim, removed damaged part & re-planted the healthy ones. It would take weeks or months, depends on the severity of the problem. The plants with rhizome, as long as the roots & rhizomes are healthy, it should grow back.

There's no reason to mix soil. Just use one or the other.

You don't need to quarantine new plants. Rinse with dechlorinated water is all you need. Your soil still leaching ammonia I think. I think you should focus on your plants first. Once you done re-scraping your tank & the plants grow well, then you can add shrimps. I would check ammonia at least before putting any shrimp.

I read that vine plant can grow under water & they look beautiful when they grow out of the water.

Plant in second pic, I did try & they did grow well underwater. It even produced shoots & flower. However, the lower part, from root, melted after a while. Maybe nutrients deficiency because I did not dose anything that time.

I just take a look the 2nd pic again in my computer. I think that is different plant that I tried in my aquarium. The one in your pic have jagged leaves while the one I tried have non-jagged leaves.

This is old photo when I tried the plant in my tank. The reason is because they grow well naturally in the water. On land they grow shorter.

Hi guys, I’m looking into this hobby. Went to a shop nearby my house in Setia Alam and they sell Kintons aquarium & cabinet (aluminum). Is this brand good? Or where else I can see more variant of aquarium & cabinet in KL/Selangor? I’m looking for 2ft tank. Where else can I get good range of products nearby? Thanks!

Got my 2 ft tank from Aquaworld Yap - at Selanyang.
about 650RM

there are other seller- eg CC tank murah in FB

are you sure you want to start with 2ft? aquascaping is quite challenging
personally i would suggest to start with 30cm, or 40cm cube tank

are you going for high tech or low tech? have you got the complete equipment list?

ps: not familiar with Kinston- but sounds like arcylic tank. it will get scratches.
btw- you may also drop by Xian Long- they have lots of hardware and fish stock. though not exactly aquascape shop.

Specialized shops which i am familiar with are
>Aquacult damansara
>Aquascape paradise
>Natural - SS19
>Nilufar Atria

Do perform your research first, and check out some fantastic youtube like GreenAqua, Cinescaper, Jurijs etc

Hi thanks for your reply.

I am planning for low tech tank, probably with cannister, without CO2. I am thinking of 2ft tank due to the available space, and it would be a 1-time investment for the tank & cabinet.

Thanks for the suggestion on the youtube. I watched Jurijs but his method is so high tech now and make everything looks so simple sweat.gif

If you want low tech, check out MD Fish Tanks. His tank mainly without co2 and using diy cheap light.

2ft tank is a sweet spot to start with and easier to maintain over time. 40cm cube tank is also fun to play with, good height for lots of background plants.

If you want somewhere near Setia Alam, perhaps you could try Beebies Shrimp Aquatic Pets. It's near Bukit Raja. The owners (young Chinese couple) seem knowledgeable so you can ask them for advice on setting up your tank.

Hello,

I need help identifying this fish. They're bottom dwellers & very active. Like to eat blanched zucchini that I put in for my bristlenose pleco.

Thanks to my cat, from 6 down to 3 of this fish in my tank.

EDIT: Nevermind. It is Silver Flying Fox (Crossocheilus reticulatus), also known as the Reticulated Siamese Algae Eater, Fishnet Flying Fox, and Reticulated Flying Fox, is a close relative of the more common Siamese Algae Eater (C. reticulatus).

Can Combo with Nerite snail + Yamato
