Discuss I will ask u for 5-10 at least

going to set up a 3ft bare bottom tank for discus. Will be using a OHF filter, anybody know if 1000l per hr pump is okay for the discus? Worried the flow is too strong.

Hi guys. My 2 ottos suddenly died, together on the same day.... What might have happened? All other fishes were fine, and the other algae eaters were fine too... They have been in my tank for about 3 months now

Advice on Anubias

Hi All,

need some advice on Anubias. currently the leaves are getting curvy or wrinkle like the images below.

now doing a dry start in my tank.
is the light too strong?
i water the roots and mist the leaves. or should i avoid misting the leaves?




Currently using the below light brand, White light 24W



thanks in advance

My anubias nana 24/7 didnt expose to the fish tank LED light also can survive very well

The light source only come from the living room light, u can imagine how hardy anubias nana is

My low tech fish tanks are only 7.5 litres and 3 litres respectively with aquarium salt added in and the anubias nana still no sweat at all

So I am not sure what happen to yours.

hey guys anybody kena red worms in your tank?

i found lots of red worms in my substrate... removed a bunch of them... some say they are parasite called comallanus that infects livebearers like guppies...

then some also say could be those little fruit flies lookalike that lay eggs in the water... this type is harmless and can be food for the fish... the the comallanus is dangerous to fish...

if you are keeping guppies and you have camallanus worms in the tank, its quite easy to id.
your guppies will have this in the pic and its very er xin one.
if left untreated, the guppies will GG in no time.

Was doing a dry start for monte carlo. So since there is a wait of 6 weeks, i thot its better to put in other emersed plants so that they can take roots better. Haha.
