10-12 shirmps
1 nerite snail which tried to escape. First attempt found back after 3 days... at one of the potted plan. put in water and revived. Second attend a few days later- no where to be found.

the moss bonsai... was told pelia moss.
it is far from my plan/vision.
it suppose to be light green, i saw some tip are growing light.... will tkae some time.
but the biggest problem is the is the hair algea. i think new tank issue- and my lighting a bit too long.
9-10 hrs @100% as at home.

now i cut down to 7 hrs at 80% brightness.
water change 30% alternate days
3 ml of Seachem flourish daily.
need to be care as understand the moss and shrimp are super sensitive. Dare not use any other algea treatment

any advice is will come.

well... i would not wanna blame the fish shop so much.
there are many names to the fish... local name, scientific name etc. different area call the fish different name too....

just a fish or 2- the shop just make a small living.

on the snail issue... yes snail is super sensitive. i had a few snail and at time they die for unknown reason.
water softness... hard or soft refer to the mineral content.
if u want really soft- then use RO/distill water..... the TDS would be less than 50 or so.

our tap water is around 200-300ppm- but this varies from places to places.
our tank water ... i have no clue but could be around 800-1000ppm or more.
certain rocks increase the hardness.

so doing water change will help to bring the water hardness down.

in comparison- the tank in my office - i manage to get distill water and the 2 snail is good after 6 months.
(note- now a days i mix 50:50 with tap water- as wants some mineral contents

cheers!

Well.... I’ve been hearing about amano shrimp and entire snails.

In fact the bonsai have many small snail- I tend to leave it there. But no one can tell if they are eating the moss or the algae.

Amano shrimp- my concern is that not compatible the WHt red shrimps

nice sharing.
u been breading for years?
mind to share some success tips?

i have like 10 of them in my planted tank- they are lovely to look at.

Oh okay. I haven't checked any of those shops before. Maybe I do a little search on them in a bit. Hmm.. I think my concern would be the cost of the shrimps. Hahas. Since I'm not sure how will they fare in the tank tongue.gif

No more arrow eh? Recently, I checked Aquaneo's web, their shrimps are quite cheap. But also not sure still active or not. Last thread bump was last few months I think. Heard of them?

Anyhow, I'm not really in a hurry to get those shrimps. Still contemplating whether to get from my old source or try Malaysian ones. Hahas. Support Malaysian product eh?  rclxm9.gif

Huhu! that Ejet give out 1200L/hr....
it is more for 120cm tank.

for 50CM tank, something around 600L/hr will be enough

imagine you are the fish, in such chaos environment- 24/7.... really stressful

if u can afford... but a Dophin CF300.
it is about RM55 and do the job ok.
Dophin CF600 would make more sense in your case, in you serious about your hobby

anotherway is to use the lily pipe, spin type can reduce the water flow to some good extend.

i got 3 Dophin.... they are working fine.
Good for the price.

CF300 is rather small...i am using for 30cm cube tank.
CF600 used for my 2ft tank. it has built in UV and larger compartment for bio media. just a bit more costly but still pretty affordable.

thinking to get some fish... which merchant does sell livestock eh?

Hi sifu...

Need some guidance here... In progress setup a plant tank (+shrimp + guppy)


After setup 1 week, been throw some Cherry shrimp but all die the next day, I'm suspect Ammonia level as I only had TDS tester which show TDS ~290, now after few round of water changing (10% daily), TDS had drop to 170 something.

My question is
1. Initial I though wanna try no Co2, but its seen the plant is yellowish, any suggestion of Co2 setup (tank size, regulator, soleniod) for 34L tank? (Co2 will follow light timing, 8H/day)

2. Facing some algae issue (greenish on glass, and yellowish on stone), after putting the cheap shrimp(黑壳虾), its solve some, but the glass and stone still there, any suggestion for such small tank?
Lighting is LED 11w, Brand : Jinyin DF36, 11W 8H/day
My intention is just having some greenish at home for relaxing purpose, so looking not complicated setup, but when saw the plant cant grow, and really spoil my mood.

Hi, if you are doing low tech.... then plant selection is important. my first try... all plant melted, water murky, lots of ammonia and even keep changing water the bio load is still there.
below is my second try- so far ok ( for 3 weeks now). Had a few shrimp and a pair of ember tetra
Anubias and the long tall plant is doing ok
i had some monte carlo- it is not really dying but it is not spreading as well.
i've put some left over moss there- too early to tell what will happen but they aint dead yet


CO2- i had done alumium tank, 1 liter with solenoid. Shrimpoly is doing promo for 288 RM a set- best deal ever. i spend like rm 500 for my set.
u may try 6 hours lighting first- CO2 start 1 hr before light, and end 1 hr before light.
but CO2 for 34 liter tank? it seems not wort it. we use normally for 2 ft tank, at least 1 ft cube.
i am using Magroove RGB- around rm 100


Algea- long issue... if only on glass then it is not too bad- usual advice is frequent water change and reduce lighting time. also get plant to be healthy!

Just bought a up-aqua Co2 tank 2L From Shopee

Need some suggestion for
- Regulator
>> Looking for Dual stage, but unable indetify any from Shopee, its mostly stated dual gauge, i believe is not same.
>> Any advise?

- Solenoid
>> Build in or separate from regulator? Pro and Cons
>> Anything thing to take note?

- Check Valve
>> Wanna get those SS one from Shopee

- Diffuses
>> As my tank is non-canister, so looking for general in tank one.

Regulator and solenoid- they are a combo set. get together.
why do u need a dual stage? i have both single and dual stage and they are fine
it should cost around RM 300, but recently there is this WUFAN brand which cost 150 or so.

check valve and bubble counter... there are many type in the market. get something simply will do.


Diffuser- i would rather pay more attention on this. Be particular on the bubble size..... it should be small and float around to side way with the water stream as it travel up... this allow for more time/surface contact and dissolve better in water. You would not large bubble to travel up and pops at the surface.

i would've just change to Neo ( around Rm 50). Previously using Ista UFO, which also give nice fine bubble- just that it is bulky and affect my scape.

i think all the thread is the same for those face up.
i could be wrong......

suggest to bring the tank to shop and get it fitted proper. i know at time this is problematic. Do the leak check there at the shop if possible- else will be a hassle to refill the tank.

Up-Aqua has regulator, Ista also good.
it will cost Rm 300 or so. i think should be ok for u, since you are using 2L tank. haha

Method 1- should be the way... i know it is a hassle
Method 2- the water conditioner will take a few minutes to react in removing chlorine.... it would have affected small livestock, and especially good bacteria in the soil and filter.

Method 2 is ok i guess, if for 10-20% water change

just got myself a 60X40X40 tank.... even 30% water change need 2 full buckets.... so big hassle as using the bucket to take out dirty water 2X.
then fill up and add conditioner. wait for minutes and pour in. then fill up and wait again.

Now getting a small pump - to send water from bucket to the tank without so much filling.

I just use my filter water, didn't really dose any water conditioner. so far so good.

well... yeah. the water conditioner is mainly the chlorine remover... it claims to have "some universal magical power" etc.
on filter water- what type of filter is that?

is typically sand/activated carbon i doubt it will remove cholorine
RO unit- it will... but it is too expensive to use for fish tanks =D
