Hi all, Ampang here..
Here my 6 month tank low tech.. Just rescape from a 2 years old tank before..

Anyone have dolphine cf300 before? Or use it.
Can give any comment?

Currently using Dolphine Cf800 atm and i think it abit overkill and the flow are too hard/fast for my Bob the Betta... (It was use for my 2ft tank previously). Gona have new 2.5 ft tank soon. So just use it for now to help the bio bact.

Its a 35L tank btw.

Dont think this hobby "mahal" actually. Well all hobbies are not cheap or cheap depend on what u actually want. Look at gaming, it can be just play game ay phone or have full 10k gaming rack... Well same as here..

You can have Rm50 dollar aquarium/scape or full 5k scape...

How is your betta coping with rest of the tank mates?
they been co-habitating for long? Tetra not giving much issue?

I had like 6 tetra and 2 pink danios.... and after putting the betta in- found the betta fins begins to crack
apprently the darios been the culprit


"Zebra danios are a peaceful fish that get along with most tankmates, however, they will nip fins of certain species of fish. Any fish with long flowing fins, such as angelfish, bettas, and guppies, are potential targets of the active zebra looking for something to do. Good potential tankmates may include barbs, corydoras catfish, similar-sized gouramis, loaches, and swordtails. "
They are colorful fish, and very active too- add a lot of liveliness to the tank.

but i guess i need to separate them now

Ehh my Beta dosnt bother others. Really peaceful atm.

Owh anf i added 3 more Ghost catfish. Such a shy fish..

normally betta cant kacau others- cuz it is slow swimmer. May be guppy kena coz it cant swim fast.
in my case the betta kena danios... coz Danios is known to be "fin nipper"

i took out the 2 large danios ( which been the rascal in the tank)- my betta tail been fine so far after a week.

Aha! Welcome to the club.
Normally people get idea and concept first before they get the tank. Anyway, it is mood to late. Do google more pics and ideas (look up theme like jungle, Dutch, iwagumi etc ). Also do you intend to do high tech or low tech? That is more or less the first decision.

Any user / review of Ista Co2 aluminum cylinder supply set / 0.5l – single pressure gauge.

What does it mean by single pressure gauge?

thanks
*
bro- u miss above set, it is really good deal
Insta cylinder is good, but 0.5l for me is too small.
mine is 1 liter, could last 2 months or so. it is a bit of hassle to send for re-fill, as need to wait 2-3 days before get the cylinder back.,

1 gauge is enough- to read the balance pressure in tank.
the outlet we dont read pressure- just use a bubble counter.

put in a container and place inside the fridge....

Sharing of my new project- ending the 2019
In short- using a cube tank mimic the Lost World by Cinescaper.... though I don’t intend to make it so dense yet- let it gradually grow over the weeks.

It is nearly a month now- the plants are healthy and growing

well.... the only thing left to do would be perform more frequent water change, reduce the food- fish dont die as i din feed my tank for 2 weeks during Xmax.

dont reduce light anymore as the plant will suffer more.

how much does a small aquarium setup cost? was thinking of starting one with plants and small fishes
*
Say a simple breakdown- assuming you wanna start off cheap, and go for low tech:
Tank 30cm cube would be RM 80, or 2 feet type around RM 150
Filter around Rm 50-RM 100
Lights... RM 30 in LAZADA. It might not be too effecive, but should be ok for low demand plants
Substrate- could get around RM 50 for 3kg?
Rock... go to pick it up by river or road side
plants average RM 10-15 each. if you know someone... then can get free for free when he/she do trimming. ( i spend like RM200 or so as was trying out last time, trying out, curious, some melted. but now trimming out and throw away is damn sayang)

I wish to transfer all the hardscape as well, but they all cover with algae, im not sure going to use it or not.
But most probably i will move some of the substrate to it though
*
if u transfer the hardscape, i would disinfect.
if can put the H2O2, else i would bleach and boil it if possible
if really cant- then scrub it clean with a brush and put under the sun a few days

even u do all that, your soil would have still traces of algea ( or its spores or what ever)


QUOTE(kizwan @ Feb 8 2020, 09:56 PM)
All I know java moss require heater & good water current. Unless you have aircon turn on, at most water temp drop to 29 - 30C at night or during raining in our climate.
All beneficial bacteria are on the surface like on the glass wall, deco, driftwood, filter material, etc. There is no benefit in reusing water from your current aquarium. If you reuse the filter from your current aquarium, at best it speed up the cycle, not eliminate it.

u sure about requiring heater?
i would thought moss favors cold temp.....

well... air pump kill the bacteria?

or if u not in hurry, after transfer then does in algeacite and do black out.
it should clear the algea but then again- been told if the condition in tank is right... the algae will come back easily

they call it biofilm, normally develop off drift wood.
yeah, it does not much harm, use a small fish net to remove them once or twice and some water change they will be gone.

Anyone here have mini lobster... bloody savage fler.... bit off my tetra tail and let it die while it is alived.

total casualty is like 10 tetra and 2 rummy nose (suspect so) though some old group of amber tetra seems able to get away from it.

Probably the same family with different pattern.
they are sensitive being... at time die when i dose algeacide


and other time... the escape from the tank. One of my snails escape twice....
i think 2-3 days they are out of water and about to die when i found it..

though GGWP... but after put it back to water - it is alive again to my happiness

they help alot on cleaning the tank surfaces. scrap it clean 24/7

which type of insta CO2 which you bought?
i guess those looks like spray can- and not alumium cylinder.
Those type have 2 sets
Type A is starter kit- 1 can with a small inverted cup ( not diffuser)
Tybe B is is 3 can without the cup.

so you need to get the starter kit at least.
at anyway- these canister CO2 is not effective. it helps low demand plants- but dont do much with high tech plants.

i had tried before in a small jar aquarium with it- the monte carlo did not die, but it did not spread either.

since u dont have much plant, and algae is bad- perhaps do a total restart- put the fish somewhere ( for a good 10 days or so) and clean whole tank.

i think many people mis-understand- algea eater be it amano shrimp, pleco, otto can only assist when the algea is growing in small to moderate level

when there is an outbreak- they won't assist much.

beside total start over- you could try to black out it, or try algeacide if you have any.

show us your tank photo
