hmm, need to condition them properly..

Haha ya, I told him that our small tank can only keep small fishes which are also easy to rear....

So gave him choices like guppies, platies, tetras, danios...

Only see zebra danios and pink zebra danios in those shops which he is not interested. Then those feeder guppies also not very nice...

Saw some black/orange and red platies at I think polyart?

And also white plecos? Those small white and some with blue n pink on their body which is nice...

He settled for blue guppies which cost $1 for the females and 80cts for the males at C328....

He also asked if we can keep lobsters n crabs so next time can eat it....


By the way, can I keep cherry shrimps with guppies ?

By the way, are the amonias and nitrates test kits necessary? I'm only keeping danios and guppies, I also had some nanas in the tank.

I will change 20% of the water weekly also.

Can keep guppies and cherry together but need to give the shrimp hiding place.
