  1. I have seen tank that plant the bamboo on the surface that way it grows extremely fast help control the water quality
  2. I use a LED Floodlight 10W in my 1 ft albi tank and it grows moss beautifully. so I think for your 6 ft a couple of 50W should be adequate for what you need
  3. I don't mean one 50W light but maybe 2 or 3. Like Bettarazzi said how deep in your tank affects your lighting needs
  4. The plants you mentioned will grow great in the light provided. I don't recommend you house a betta fish with other fish or shrimp coz bettas are slow and if their tails get nipped they can't get away fast enough and you will have a whole world of problems such as fin rot etc. As for the shrimp they will become lunch fairly quickly. I've had friends who uses fluval edge it's extremely hard to clean especially on top and it doesn't give enough surface with air to allow for good oxygen transfer. With that said it looks great!
  5. why don't you go LED floodlights? I've recently started using them and they have no problem growing low light plants for me but I only small wattages so you grab a few 50W ones for your tank it won't cost your more than buying t5 high output. The running cost is next to nothing for them coz they're long lasting and uses very little power.
  6. what I found is not the tank too small is how much maintenance you want to do. The rule of thumb is small tank + only a few fish = maintenance regular (maybe weekly water changes) small tank + lots of fish = maintenance super regular (like daily water changes at the minimum) Large tank + only a few fish = maintenance semi-regular (maybe monthly or fortnightly water changes) Large tank + lots of fish = maintenance regular (maybe weekly water changes) Keep in mind this is only a rule of thumb there's so many more factors to it but it gives you an idea. It's not impossible to k
  7. I bought a few lights from guppies aquarium website.they're good but I heard buying from them can be a hit or miss
  8. eat the fish? What kind of fish would you have to keep that looks good and editable? I had the same question as I had with a fully planted tank... the amount of dissolved organics would be through the roof without water changes or are you doing water changes as well?
  9. do you have any pumps or something that helps with water circulation?
  10. what's that plastic thing on the inside?
  11. 15000k is the colour of the light, anything over 10,000K is blue it's not possible to have 150000K and it's white. Also the number does not add together... maybe you have 3 5000K ones? Blue light are excellent for marine tanks for coral but normal tropical tanks would need white light coz it can't absorb the blue light as well
  12. I have bought a few SS grade shrimp to increase the grade of CRS in my tank and they're doing great! no problems and breeding like crazy... I use rainwater
  13. you guys make it sound so hard... my shrimp setup is a small 30L tank with a twin sponge filter and I have over hundred shrimps in there at peak and then I started selling them...
  14. a kilo? how many fish do you have to feed them? Again I'm so envious.... I never had dying worms either if I kept it in the fridge.
  15. I've had problems with blackworms in the past, no matter how careful I'm with them. But this can be a number of things such as my water is harder to keep clean with such high protein foods etc etc. I haven't used them for about a year now coz I was living in a shared house and putting worms in the fridge was a no no. I've started culturing whiteworms and they seem to do the job as well as the blackworms and a lot less messy. But I firmly believe in the phrase "take care of the water and the fish will take care of themselves". Fish tend to get sick more easily when they're already stresse
