What type of goldfish will you be keeping?
Not all goldfish can take strong current especially in such a small tank.
only 1 small ranchu, maybe in future add 1 more only. which water pump will be good ?

I believe you will be keeping side view ranchu which don't like strong current.
as you will be using small tank, it will be like living in a washing machine if the return flow is very concentrated.

why not use a sponge filter instead?

Gold fish like to bang sai, best to get one that reach bottom, sinking pump type. Biofilter is the best but if you can custom the top to two layers, I dun see why it will not do the job. Rest is more attention on filter media.
i see some water pump the area where it suck in water is at the bottom instead of the front portion. which is better ?

im using a sponge filter now with tidal 35, water not clear enough so thought of removing sponge and filter change to OHF with 2x2 box.

I am more concern about the strong current for the fish.
maybe you can try out the OHF and see the result.

do share with us your findings and reviews.

I saw rice fish at Toh.
Rice fish are tougher than guppies. Rice fish are hunters. Guppies just wait for food.

Was told rice fish is seasonal. Is it true?

Not sure about this as I never keep rice fish before.
It looks a bit like killifish but less colourful.

Yep, this is preggy, can separate out, use cloth cover up. Cover tank top also. If not use turtle tank, air pump and sponge filter. Do not expose babies to regular filter, all will die after being suck up by filter.

Babies attract lizards, so must all round defense. babies can eat tubi but better not. find fine powder baby food.

Mother must not disturb, if not eat babies.
U mean local normal house lizards will eat the guppy fries?!

* tidal is actually one of the better HoB filter with large media space and customizable


Those pumps no diff side or bottom cos all are centrifugal most of the time , it’s just the opening of the cover

But things need to note is the sizing of the pipes tubes connectors , some small volume pumps dun use 12/16 or those common ones .
