The water probably has too high General Hardness (GH) for the molting to be successful

Sent from my air hole using GAGT

no leh. I can see a lot of them molted successfully.

but aiya... always see shrimp die very sad.

sometimes i wonder if fish keeping is for me. cause everytime see just one die i feel damn sorry for them lol

shrimp can be jumpy when got spooked.
even as simple as turning on the aquarium light.

now I turn on the room light first before I turn on the aquarium light.

guys can i ask some question

1. water is greenish cloudy, how to cure?
2. bought 1kg superworms, after 1 week, massive dying, most of them curl up and turn black. any reasons? what are the steps to do to make sure they last longer? after mine start dying, fruit flies or gnats will breed.

water bay zai. Best to transfer all the fish out then re-setup the entire tank.

All parts must be sterilize properly using hot water. E.g. wash the sand (if any) with hot water, wear glove, slowly wash pile by pile.

mealworm, you talking about 面包虫 right? Another name is 麦片虫, you cannot keep them forever because they are baby larva, once matured they turn into some beetles. To feed them, give cereal, To breed them, use egg crate, those paper type, just cut and break them into a empty fish tank you can rear the meal worm.

guys. where can i buy those plastic cover to cover the fish tank? Must go to those hardware shop and ask them to cut those plastic?

Most LFS sells them. In case, they don't ask Polyart or Clementi Flourist. Y618 I understand they have, so does AquaStar.

But best to call up and ask if they have stock or not.

eggs are those at the bottom of the belly.

Most of the time we do not worry about the female, it is the male that we worry because their life span is much shorter than the female one.

Generic speaking, girls live longer than guys, from insect to animal to mammal to fish. Female excel in life than male. This is like a metal law. So watching the colony, we count the male, if the male cannot mature fast to mate with the female, the entire colony collapse.

cereal, just get those giant big packet put pour into an empty plastic container, use plastic spoon. They don't really eat that much.

All fish and shrimp you not suppose to spook them.

In the case of monster fish, they attack you if you always spook them. Once your hand goes in you'll see how they attack. 报仇时间到了!

Just get 5Plan brand one. Cheap and simple. Get a backscape you can set up something different.

The background you seeing here from my tank, well, that scape is fake one.
