Thatís my biggest pet peeve, the moisture makes my home moldy, and the walls around my tank gets damp.

Worse is some of the luxury bags and shoes get mold.. zzz
my house also quite moldy, and because i need to maintain a piano, i have no choice but get a dehumidifier (Novita)...

Because Chloramine, unlike Chlorine, in our water does not dissipate over time, no matter how many days you rest the water.
I beg to differ. Chloroamine do eventually get decomposed away from the water just like chlorine. It is just longer.

You can put a pail of water in a quiet, cool and dark corner of your house. Check it daily till you see mosquitoe larva. That is about the amount of day for the water in your house to become safe for fish.

Thanks for your suggestions! I have Java moss already tied to a rock in my tank. They can be used as carpet plant too? How do I attach it to the soil?

Right now I have Java ferns, swordplant, java moss, a tall grass-like plant that I can't tell is what species (bought in a $1.50 pot).

I also have two pots of grass-like plants (about 10cm tall) that has no visible roots (was shocked) that I just trimmed and planted into the soil.

Do you know where can I get Dwarf saggarita and how is it sold (e.g. pots)?
Please check out the youtube video on how to do a java moss carpet. It is quite easy and the carpet will last forever. Minimum fuss. But do take note, java moss need colder water. A fan blowing the tank will achieve the necessary temperature but the draw back is high rate of evaporation.

Restart your tank will be better because leftover good will cause worm infestation.

So now all u can do is to bleach the whole tank > filter
Talking about worms, beginning of last year my tank got algae infection. Then I add more plants and slowly started cleaning the algae from the glass. Then I notice small white worms at the soil. After a few days, the algae disappeared and the worms also gone.

Just to check...

Both my tanks(90x45x50) are using Eheim Pro 3 600 and Ecco Pro 300.

Are my tanks considered overfiltered or underfiltered?
