Hi to all fish nerds,

This thread is also created to post update on local LFS and stockings of various watery creatures and aquarium equipment.

Do keep the thread civil and dont break any hardwarezone rules.

So Fish nerds, remember to keep your hands wet!

in part 2 thread!!!!

those feeder guppies actually can buy and rear. some of them actually v pretty, just that they have abit of flaw hence fail QC and cull and become feeder guppies

Rear feeder guppies also v suitable for beginners and also for children

Just get a 2 feet cheap china plastic tank with a cheap china made filter, throw the feeder guppies into the conditioned water and the guppies will breed like mad

Oh, rmb to get cheap plants like hornwort or java fern too so that the babies can hide inside and grow in future

buy a cheap light as well as the plant need light to grow. if u r on budget, then just put it besides a window with indirect sunlight which is what i am doing The indirect sunlight can also kill the harmful germ bacteria inside fish tank too

then buy the cheapest fish food which cost about $1.50-$2 to feed the guppies once a day will do always better to underfeed than overfeed

yes, it is v cheap too

Also need to buy a $2.50 siphon to suck out all the poop weekly. Then top up water that's lost due to siphon and water evaporation

My method is already a v v cheap way to kick start fish keeping hobby

Is there such a thing as feeder cherry shrimp?

How's the health of the feeder fish these days? years ago, I remember many of them were sickly and would die soon; sometimes they might even kill the fish that ate them.

Continue to feed them? Any idea?

Thanks.
