At the back. Near bagging counter, hanging at the side where aunty put goldfish.


The plant in the pic is not java fern. Green spot is common. Use nerite snails. Maybe too much light or nutrients. I mainly have them on glass but i dont really care, cause not alot.


Not the crypt i recommend. It can even be floated.

You need very fine fishing string. Tie it to something.

As for growth, Seachem nitrogen, Seachem trace element dosing. Occasionally Seachem Flourish, not too much, too much you will regret.

So again, this picture.

Plants can be segregated into different areas if you want to. When you take a picture and it show up very greenish, it does mean the plants are healthy. Yah...I know my hands need to be upgraded to avoid shaky picture....ha ha.

Used to keep a 4ft planted tank, but that was more than 10 years ago.

Stopped because no time to maintain, and the tank was starting to leak and the cabinet was starting to fall apart. That's the problem when you buy from those local shops that DIY their own tanks. And it was very expensive, paid $1,200 for the tank.

Used a metal halide lamp and Amano CO2 system I bought in Japan. Really loved to see my plants grow and bubble and my fish all happily swimming around. Even managed to breed the Cichlids.

who are the tank mates?

Scoop into another container and feed them in that container then transfer fry back to original tank

tubi you need to change water before feeding. tubi usually lfs expose them to air so that no need to air pump them.

As for main tank, main tank need good filter to maintain tubi feeding tank. If main tank got soil bed, tubi can reproduce itself. Additional HOF is a good choice.

Move the lamp away from air stone path. LED dun like jumping water droplet. LED will die easily.

Water can be lower. When planting, scoup out and pail the water, plants will be exposed to max lighting to develop their roots.

养水,养植物,养鱼。 In sequence.

Far side can add stone, near side depends how your driftwood going to face. Driftwood and stone can combo. Keep turning the face until they look matching to you.

Driftwood please give it a thorough boiling hot water bath. wear shoe protect your legs. Kills fungus.
