I just found out something silly. Weekly i do try to clean up the guppy tank, suck out whatever waste among the plants. Today i notice the tank's walls are quite covered with algae thick. Bey tahan, so I start to scratch it off with a plastic spoon. Then I realise as i scratch (quite tough i realise), the guppies are crowding around me busy munching the algae i scrap off. Wah lau, can't they have helped me peck off from the wall instead...
So I just scrap and they eat, didn't care to take out the algae. The guppies seem happy snacking on them.

Its nothing harmful for the fishes to eat them. Right???
Actually you should leave the algae alone.
Its a good source of food for the fish and it helps to polish the water.

Yup it is good for their digestive system too, but if you leave the algae in your tank, it multiply faster, nothing harmful, just more unsightly

I notice they never pinch on the algae wall before leh. Polish water meaning?
I realize the algae thick till quite hard to scrape. Probably will leave it alone for a few weeks see if grow back bah. And ya it was unsightly thus caught my attention...

Polish water means to make the water better.
Algae is also like plants. It will consume waste and give out O2.

i just realise when i keep my betta fish in those 350ml Nano Tank Cube and place it under the morning sun, the fish tank will grow lots of algae and i only suck suck out the poop daily. and top up water. the fish is surviving v well!!!

compare to when i didnt let it morning sun tanned and the fish will die quickly

i believe the morning sun kill off all the germs and bacteria

thats y those who stay at HDB and put their fish tank guppies with hornwort and outside corridor with morning sun, no filter and low maintenance, they can still multiply

Anyone had slowly dying cherry shrimps, like 3 or 4 shrimps every week due to high water temperature (29 or 30 deg)?

Just started this hobby. Been reading stories of people keeping at this temp and say breeding like rabbits. But not for me. Shrimps and shrimplets dying slowly.
