i got a bucket to do store water and add chlorine removal, then let it rest there for 2-3 days before proceed to do water change.

Is tat ok ?
If you already resting the water for 2-3 days, why do u still need to put the dechlorinator?

if you are into aquascape, go for 2x 3ft. monster fish, then 5ft!

Sent from my air hole using GAGT
I prefer 5 feet where I can mix fishes from my favorite region.(Central and South America).

Best is a typical South American river or Central American stream layout.

200 pieces of embers,40 pieces of platies and 20 pieces of corys.

quite easy since yours is a small tank.
pack the shrimps into a bag.
the remaining water pack into another bag (don't throw the water away).

once reached your new house, use back the old tank water.
Lol to be honest I never thought about the packing the remaining water in another bag.

Anything you buy in C328 florist is cheapest in the whole nation.

I've already done the comparison before.

And no need insist on seachem brand, other brands like API works equally good.

Yup.Stresscoat is the best.

Hi guys. Need some help. I went holiday for 3 days and now my tank population is almost gone. Day 1, someone accidentally poured almost the whole fish feed into my tank but did not or dunno how to clear them. Day 2. My fish are mostly dead. Day 3, I came back and found my angelfish floating and lying flat. It's long fins and feeler fins are all gone. Can consider a gonna too. Total, I lost 1 good looking angelfish, 5 rainbow fish, 12 white cloud mountains, 1 bristlenose, 2 Cory, 1 oto. Survivors only 2 more Cory and 2 oto. I'm not sure if they can last.

My tank has sky high ammonia now. I did test. It was always yellow colour. Now the test is bluish green. I did more than half tank change. But theres still ammonia though slightly better than before the water change.

What should I do? Carry on changing water now? Or wait and see if ammonia will go down. The water is cloudy but clearing cos of my water change. I also washed my filter using old tank water.

Go and buy Seachem stability. Do regular WC of 25% daily, and dose Stability.

Also, put in an air stone to pump up the oxygen if possible.
