My fish shifu say go overseas dont feed better. Coz ammonia keep rising without u changing water. So better to starve them.
yes. if going away for holidays, its better not to feed.
if the fish happened to fall sick during that period and they refused to eat and the auto feeder keep dispensing food, it will be a disaster.

good to see a small community here.

Here is my newly minted 4ft (120cm) freshwater tank. About 1 month old now


I have 3 clown loach inside. 2 panda cory. 3 siamese algae eater. 2 oto. some shrimps and some neon tetras. 1 angel fish



This was about 1 week old.


This was my previous set up. 2 tier 2ft tank.

The bottom tank is 2ft cube. and another 3ft tank somewhere else.
Your lights for the 4ft is nice. What kind is it and how much?

Wah 6 feet very big. My intention was to buy the fish in the young stage,then keep until big. So buy small tank. Then if really outgrow tank then buy new one. I'm a first time keeping fish so thinking start small. Haha
