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.
By right yes if not fishes will die unless u confidence on what to do you don't need the kit


just know what cause ammonia or nitrates? what can reduce it? what are the sign?

Ok , thank you
just check with you guys.

If there's a spike in nitrate, is there any tell tale signs? or only can know via testing kit?

Then I see those in market, like Black Water, Anti Bacteria... Are those necessary as well?

May I know how long can a fish go without food? My fish tank currently have 2 Kong Ming and one sucker. Currently, I have been feeding them once per week.

Found that keeping the aquarium doesn't seem like a bad idea, just hope that me won't get poison like cycling....

When I bought him to C328 that block on Sat, he was so amazed and asked me when can change bigger tank ..

When we were back home with the guppies, he helped by making them a accustomed to the current aquarium. Then daily help to feed n monitor the fish...

Weekend got spare time, we sit and watch the fish behavior, he was surprised that the danio ate the fish poo. And how one danio keeps hiding at one corner when the guppies were introduced.

After a day, the danio finally came out from it's "cave" and mix with the rest of the fishes..

the powder form is even more economical if you have more tanks.

if Kallang Bahru is not too far away from you, maybe you can visit Toh Aquarium at blk63.
