Ocean Free's New Water Guard leh?

Been using it for the last 13 years.
As long as can remove chlorine and chloramine, it's good enough.

Don't keep worrying about the branding. If not, you might need to drink it to anti-stress instead.

Fish-keeping should be an enjoyable hobby, not stressful instead lah....

seaview is not exactly cheap but also not expensive either.

The platies are in a 90 x 45 x 50 tank in my study with 120 embers and 10 corys.

I always maintain their water temperature at below 26 degrees.

Each time after weekly water change,I run the AC in my study for an hour per week.Will that help them?
its about consistency.

you need to keep the water parameters consistent all the time including temp.
no point turning on the aircon for an hour at 26C while the rest of the day is at 30C.
it will stress the fish.

For a 3 feet tank(90x45x50),how to see if it is overcrowded?

Water temperature wise...It will go up just at most one degree.Ammonia is close to zero based on the Seachem Ammonia Alert on the tank wall.PH is around 7-7.2.

I do add a dose of Seachem Neutral Regulator once a month during monthly servicing of the Eheim Pro 3.

one is to test the water for nitrate.
heavy bioload will stress your filtration sys and you need to keep up with water change.
also look closely at the water. if the air bubbles don't burst within 10-15 sec or so, that means water getting bad liao.


another way is to observe your fish behavior.
are they keep getting sick?
are they fighting all the time?
is every fish getting enough share of their food?

only you can tell whether the parameters are ok or not.
as long they don't swing widely thru out the day, should be ok.

3 feet quite small for your amount of fish inside.

Is it the biggest size you are allowed to have?
always go for biggest as allowed.
