This is the part which puzzled me. The black and yellow guppies are from the same tank in the LFS. The tank isn't big and kept tens and tens of guppies, definitely more crowded. The tank is bare without any hiding spot, only have spot filter.

It’s really survival of the fittest when out from the LFS tank.

Because the father is reddish and not blackish?
Thatís why I stopped buying guppies. The mortality rate is high.
First day, happy eating and swimming.
Second day, report sick.

No have issues with other fishes.

The agony is that the more "longkang" looking guppies seem to be more hardy... I mean those reddish or look messy type.

I see the markets' LFS, they usually have a tank full of males and another tank full of females separately . Its so packed, do they actually start fighting each other??? Btw, curious though. Wont it be more profitable for the LFS if they breed the more fancy looking guppies? They sell at $0.80 - $1.20 to sucker like me, quite profitable bah.

No food no oxygen, possibly will fight. Else, uncertainty and blur takes over.

I was looking at the aquarium before going to sleep and saw a small fish swimming about! Quickly transfer it to a small tank before it got eaten up.

Funny thing is I found it in the tank where the females only spent like 3 hrs in before I segregate them again. Must have dropped a few then but I didn't see them.

活性炭 stands for activated carbon. Of course you can add the Mian behind. Once you find the product, you further define things by mm which is thickness. How much to buy by metre.

活性炭除甲醛过滤网棉 工业废气/空气过滤净化器聚氨酯活性炭海绵

This is full title...<: )
Depending on the use, Aircon can use it. The holes, finer holes makes water harder to filter so take note.

It will be easier to just go market LFS to get the $1-2 foam, comes in 3-4 pieces depending on thickness. Thereafter you can use re-size them to your needs.
