  1. small frag on medium on large mainly it just move/grow along the edge
  2. I also keep mostly richodia, yuma, big bubble yuma and likes cos they can tahan my "torture" also trying star polyp and zoa, small frag. many may wonder why star polyp cos is easy .. yes... because I used to neglect the parameters so end up in bad shape.
  3. will try to get a clearer pic Only confident to keep soft coral. "Accidentally" got this hardy SPS as it is not expensive and luckily it survive. Reference pic
  4. any problem faced while keeping the toadstool ?
  5. pricy lighting was a hindrance to me option for low cost light also almost not available
  6. just bought marine pure gems, seachem stability and pristine to add biofilter in my nano sump
  7. bought tunze 9001 and just started it size fits well in my tight nano sump and super quiet waiting for skimmate
  8. after spending many years in this hobby .... I was still a C+/B- student why I use "was" .. cos I thought I finally know what are my mistakes. For the past few years I think my nano tank was in a bad shape and only mushrooms can tahan my "torture" So I gather I should just keep mushrooms else seeing the coral rot away also torturing to me. yes, thanks to the improvement in technology, some expensive equipment are now more affordable, e.g. lighting. TBC ....
  9. Was using AL-60 Thermoelectric cooling chiller for 2--3 years for my 40-50L nano tank and lately found out it has problem bringing the temperature below 27.5 degree. Realized one of the fans stopped spinning. Since this chiller was doing fine before one fan spoil, so I decided to get another one. Will also replace the fan of the old chiller and use it as a standby. Perhaps I wasn't aware all along that this type of chiller will struggle during prolong hot weather, the problem I faced with the new AL-60. The new AL-60 failed to bring down the tank water temperature but instead the water temperature went all the way up to room temperature. I tested it with 5L and 25L of tap water and it was working normally. But once I hook it up to the tank, it was unable to cool the tank water at all, unless the weather was cooling with room temperature below 28 degree. During those days of troubleshooting, I have to on the room aircon to help out this new chiller So I concluded that this chiller is not suitable for me . Unless the water volume is halved so that it has enough juice to do its due diligence during a hot day. "Wasted $200" end up in storeroom. But not sure why the old one was able to do a better job. After researching for a while, seems like after AL-60, the next smaller budget chiller would be Hailea chillers. Haelia 100A was my first chiller and its noise is horrible. So I decide to choose either HK-150A or 28A. Finally I decided to go for HK-150A cos 28A seems like a very old model. Have been using the Hk-150A for almost a month now. Noise wise I think its ok. Its definitely no whisper quiet but is also not very noisy. Its probably sort of slightly louder than your room fan running at full blast Easy setup. Set it at 26 degree. So far has been working fine like clockwork. Kick in every 45-60mins and run for about 7-8mins. Hope it can last.
  10. I 'm using Eden 128 for my Hailea HK-150A. Enough strength to push the water around.
  11. packed as in 紫菜? or nori? but my urchin and hermit crab no like
  12. Hi, Anyone knows which LFS carry this brand and usually has stock?
  13. Hi, How do you find the Haelia HK-150A chiller? Is it noisy? May I know where did you get it? Thank you
