dont have leh. Not too familiar with plants... So just whack only. I used to have another tank with substrates and ferts. But big mess when rescaping and cleaning. Got rid of them after 2 years. lol. What plants are good for my tank?



Never had issues witth algae over the 5 years that ive been keeping fish. i guess i never over feed ba. sometimes I let them starve for a couple days before i feed.

2. I using google pixel 2 to take the photos. Thn upload on imgur lor. No edits. I thnk is your camera!




This tank was before my current set up. I have since moved that two parrotfish to my 2000 litres pond.

Without base fert u can only keep nana, fern and moss.

Any advice for growing carpet moss in an established tank?

Am thinking of changing my substrate to something that supports proper plant growth and want to carpet moss.

you can add a fan to lower the temp.
moss can be quite nice as foreground plant.

Exactly the kind I want to grow. Are there aquarium specific fans? And must they be on all the time?

yup can get aquarium fans. they are not ex, and electricity consumption is low.

but you will lose a lot of water through evaporation, so need to top up the water daily. Can switch on in the day and switch off at night since night time cooler.

something like this depending on your tank size.
turn it on when your aquarium lights are on.

I came across algae removal by spraying hydrogen peroxide directly at the area of algae in the tank. Anyone here used this method here? Where u got your hydrogen peroxide from?

Hydrogen peroxide should be available at normal pharmacies like watsons. I think some ppl use seachem excel to remove algae as well. Especially BBA.
