  1. Hi Randy, I you don't feel like DIYing like Shootsimon said...you can buy the syringe with long tube from LFS.... I recently bought from Chinatown LFS to feed my Sun coral...
  2. i have a Caulerpa... but its slowly fading away cause these algae plants require strong lights... & i have just PL lights in my FLOWR setup... Did u have any problems or causalities when your cheato gave out color.... I think u maybe right, the algae plant may be the cause...just read that the spore can make the water turn milkly-green color http://saltaquarium.about.com/cs/algaecontrol/a/aa112000.htm
  3. Hi guys, Today morning when i woke up to feed my fish, realized that my tank water had turned light green & a bit clowdy... Didn't have time check the parameters... but there wasn't any missing fish & my tank doesn't have any anemone etc... Still puzzled, as to the reason for the color change... Yesterday night it was all ok, just did some algae cleaning, but not enought to cause so much green colouration... Anyway the fish look ok.. just change a bit of water, cause i had a small pail of salt water in reserve... Has anybody has had any similar experience... Hope nothing dies when i reach home... tonight. Thanks in advance... 50 Gallons FOWLR 1 Damsel 1 Copperbanded Butterfly 1 Maroon Clown 2 Skunk Shrimp 1 Fire Shrimp 1 Sand Sifting Star 1 Sun Coral 1 Algae Plant
  4. Sorry...should have put more details... But its hard to describe Its green, but has a very dry plastic look... Not thorny I had see it before in lfs displays generally at the top layer of the tank...in bright light
  5. Hi Guys.... I bought a beautiful sun coral, few week ago from Pasir Ris fish farm..... Now no sleep cus i have to sit late target feeding each polyp... Even tried a short cut using the coke bottle, but throwing in food doesnt reach all polyps as compared to target feeding. I saw lot of ppl using turkey basters....has anybody seen such stuff sold in singapore stores
  6. Bought a marine algae plant.... It looks like fern attached on a rock...dont have a picture at the moment! Bought from Reborn lfs... Anybody know what's it called...
  7. Thanks bro will check out daiso for a basket....
  8. Using a basket in the main tank is a good idea, even tho its not totally a quarantine, cause all fishes are swimming in the same water... Just wondering where do u get such big baskets from...& how big a basket would you required to keep a yellow tang?
  9. I agree keeping a small quarantine doesnt actually benefit, but there is always cost & space issue if another big tank just for quarantine... Didnt actually check the parameters cause i used water from the main tank which its very good...Nitrites & ammonia 0, nitrates 20 ph 8.2 Fish was feeding very well whenever the white spots reduced... pellets & nori...even saw it eating brine shrimp when in introduced it in the main tank... I dosed malachine green 1 drop in about 2 days interval on the 2nd week ...in the quarantine tank.... didnt help much i had given it a 10 min formallin dip before introducing it in the main tank... might have stressed the fish more... i guess...
  10. Hi guys! Bought a yellow tang 2 weeks ago! Since they are more pron to white spots, i planned to quarantine for 2 weeks... Only problem is my quarantine tank is small (about 6 gallons.) Anyway during the period it kept getting white spots now & then, even partial changing water didnt help cause that also cause change in parameters cause more white spots. Dosed some malachite green Anyway after 2 weeks, the white spots were still there & i had to make a dicision to put in the main tank or not, cause the main tank the water is much better... Anyway i put it in the main tank exposing risking even the existing fishes in the main tank... Tang was ok for a day , but died on the 2 day with visible white spots on its gills ... My question is is it worth to quaranatine!

  12. Yeah finally did that...bought a Weipro 2011...hang on type. $33 from pasir ris & put it in my overflow chamber... Dont need to worry about it overflowing & stuff... After 4 days..it is producting green tea coloured skimmates...
  13. If your going there, hope u go on a car otherwise have a 15-20 min walk in hot sun, cause buses are only available on the main road.
  14. Sorry to jump in the thread.. Has anybody had any sucess in keeping madrin fish alive with live adult brine shrimps...(ones you can buy from LFS). Anyway remember that even though the mandrin fishes you buy from hong leng will eat his gormet, but you will require more frequent water changes, cause the uneaten food quicky dissolves in the water & pollutes it..
