60% is alot. Again, you need to add the water slowly back to replace this 60% to prevent shock to the fishes.
Noted. Will adjust this in future

drip about 2-3 drops per sec.


never let the fish shop water goes into your tank.

Just attached the air hose that you normally use on the Air pump to this tap will do.
The tap is for you to control the dripping speed.

The volume of water change very much depending on the type of fish you keeping, the bio load, tank size and the frequency of water change.

The key still the speed one top up with new water back into the tank.

There mouth very small. So the food should be fine like powder. If u can see is pellet means too big
I think the chilli rasbora will die. They are not eating and I cant guarantee they will eat if i buy new food. And i need to crush them to fine powder to feed.

Actually i can tell u MOST of the LFS wont do any acclimate the fishes properly before selling and they also dun feed.
CHeap fishes.



Just pour in one.
So when buying just be careful.

i use the ISTA drip pail for more delicate fishes else...i will just use a clip . clip the bag in the tank...use a small cup , when i walk pass just scoop 50ml tank water pour inside ...do many times after an hour or 2 catch the fish into the tank.


Dun remember i have any fish dying on me the first couple of days before.

i do see some fish shops feeding their fishes tubifex worms
not a problem if feeding live food at home but some fishes will refuse dried food for a couple of days as they are used to live food
ever encountered a few stubborn fishes totally will not consider dried food as food and rather starve

always good to quarantine the fish for at least a week before mixing them with your existing population.

Yeah. This time got sabotage by the new fishes

Pay more attention to water change

And need to keep new fishes separate for a while

Ya. Newly bought fishes were from a brownish color water tank in shop.
Before introducing to my tank, 1/3 water mix and then 2/3 water mix in an hour interval respectively.

New water change of 60% was over night tap water

My guess is the new fishes itself ain't healthy in the first place

Btw do u guys test your water quality regularly?
their browish water is it black water? meaning with lower ph water

if u wanna be v safe, quarantine for 2 weeks

then after 2 weeks, use drip method over 1 hr to acclimatise your new fish to the fish tank

Also to use water test kit to check out ph value, temperature, ammonia, nitrite and nirate regularly

if u want, can further test carbonate and total hardness
