lol lots of people cant afford dogs or cats
Not sure if you are trolling or legit.

You should go check out an aquarium and look at the price of fish, especially special breed or monster fish like arowana. Their prices will make your eyes pop.

Keeping fish is also not exclusive from keeping other pets. Many have dogs, cats, birds and fish altogether. Different people, different style.

If the white worm and snails are climbing out or to the top of the tank, it means water is either lacking in oxygen and or ammonia is high and or food aplenty.

Snails and white worm are beneficial to aquarium actually. They are clean up crew. And in this case, canary to let you know the tank water quality.

Good luck in whatever decision you takes.

I have snails and worm in all my tanks and fishes and plants are doing great. Fish keeping is an art that take times to perfect.

I think I really need to restart my tank. Off the light for 15 mins. On the light and found a worm crawling on my tank. About 2cm long and whitish colour. Sucks man.

Yah nuke the tank with bleach kill it all but bleach is risky/troublesome if you have soil.

The thing is my dad accidentally poured 3/4 of fish feed into my tank and abt 15 fishes died. Only left 2 Cory. The other 2 oto might b alive. Or dead.

And yup I did a search. They seem to be beneficial worms. I just have to wait and see if seachem stability works or not and do daily water change. Good luck to me.

Female guppies are much bigger in size but less colorful as the male.

Male can see the kkj one. No joke.
Just Google for it.

I usually replace the white filter wool once a month and do monthly servicing.I also replace the Purigen pack every quarter of the year.
my eheim many many months nv wash, the overhead trickle filter i will change the filter wool only when the filter start getting clogged.

Oic...Just want to check something.

I am interested in buying the bottled Purigen but where to get the resealable bag to fill in the Purigen powder so that I can put in the media compartment of my canister filter?
