No wood or plant..erm i feed the fish 4 times a day but they gobbled up everything so I thought is okay.

Filterpad is those can wash one..so i only wash it ... should i change to this white color one?

Some can wash. Some can replace.
4 times a day too much, got risk of overfeeding.
also feed more = more body waste = easier yellow.
u try
1- change pad
2- change 25% for the next 2,3 days
3- only feed on 3rd day, ONCE.

when i first started out, i was a total noob and washed the filter media once

why so many filter such as hang on back, hand on top, canister, sump, internal etc

i also didn't know what's cycle the tank and have never heard of beneficial bacteria, mechanical, biological and chemical filter. Activated Carbon, UV Light

Also never heard of aquarium salt, chlorine, chloramine, PH, ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, General hardness, carbonate hardness, temperature requirement.

And what is also 6500k light, or warm day light or cool day light or white pink LED or White Blue LED

What is tannis, black water? liver bearers, nocturnal fish? vitamins solution? 1cm per litre rule? aeration?

Why aquatic plants so many types? Why subtrate so many types?

don't even need to talk about CO2, NPK, micro elements and trace elements

Why algae got black beard, green, green blue etc?

But at the very least, I still bought a cheapo OF $1 anti chlorine for my first Betta Fish

i bought a bag of feeder fish

about 30-40 low grade guppies, cost $2

true enough, about 1/5 of them die within a week, despite excellent water conditions
i think they have internal defect

i itchy hand also buy poor quality fish from a poorly maintained tank, only 25% still struggling after 2 weeks

Any aquarium fish farm worth visiting? I'm staying in the west and been to most farms in the west and seaview as well. Thinking of driving to some other farm in other parts of SG. Are farms in Pasir Ris worth visiting like OTF/Mainland/Cheng Feng? Or any other areas?
Mainland - not recommended imho
what fishes u looking at?

you fared better than mine

mine left 1/5 after one week, despite the best water conditions and some liquid medicine for them

but i consider it a success if i can salvage a couple of them to breed the next normal generations

sigh, my conclusion, not worth waste time on such 'unhealthy' fishes.
the breeder knows whats going on

buy a better, healthier fishes, save time on treating them

Ask you all. Do you guys scrub your fish tank sparkling clean no algae???
Reason why I ask, because my granny's guppy tank. Usually I just ignore the algae, every alternate day suck the waste from the bottom, top water that's it. So actually the walls quite a bit of algae de. Then today the FDW out of the blues so hardworking scrub all four walls and bottom clean no algae... lol

I ever read before algae is part of the water's self sustain too, so long the fishes are acclimate to it, alright.
But in case I am wrong. Is algae actually good or bad for fish tank???
