Hahaha ya man, sian.... My the tank on my table only can go soo big, this is what I was afraid off.
Can squeeze this kind of bar table over your study table? Then can cater for bigger tank

Or small & slim rack, akan datang for me:

Actually will be most ideal if can let it stay in same tank, get used to the same water parameters. So the trick is either have lots of hiding place or get breeding box

What did you feed them with so far?

Anyway, breeding box can be quite mafan, especially since your tank is not that big. If you get a small breeding box put the pregnant in, I worry she may stress out trapped in the small breeding box.

Lucky your fries eat. Previously what I did was use flake too, but I will use fingers crush till powder form then sprinkle in. Tried egg yolk before too, but is hard to handle because it makes the water dirty...

Ask you guys for experience.

I have a small glass jar which I filled 1/4 with small pebbles, some anacharis, few snails and 1 male guppy. The jar is usually sealed. Everything has been fine for past few months until yesterday I noticed the guppy suddenly looks very fat and one side of the body looks abrasive (it wasnt like this previous day). This morning found it dead in the water, so i quickly too him out.

My qns is. Given that the fish could have been ill and died in the container. If I don't change this water, leave it sealed for say 2 weeks. Is there any possibility of the bacteria (that killed the guppy) still existing in the water? I was thinking to let the container self sustain with snails for 2 weeks, then add in new guppy.

Whats your opinion?

pls do water change. If not possible, pls have daily morning sunlight to kill off the germs and bacteria

I previously did have 2 fighting fish in only 300ml of qian hu plastic fish container for each betta

I remove its poop daily and then only top up abit water that's lost due to poop siphoning, no water change at all.

The one with morning sunlight did very well and still healthy till this day. The one with no morning sunlight fall sick and die soon after.

Dropsy? It's often due to poor water quality, which causes a bacterial infection. The balance in your micro tank may not be right.

Thanks for the advice, I think I shall take this opportunity to re-design my room and get new furniture to fit a bigger tank. I am still leaning towards the DOOA Neo Glass Air but this time the biggest(?) one they have @ 30x30x45. But I find that keeping shrimps in a wider but shorter tank would look nicer....
