Yeah idk how good that flower horn food is for Oscars but it made a hell of a nice looking fish.

We aren't joking when we say water changes and Prime are the best solution to a problem.

Too bad he doesn't like it anymore.. :(

He's used now to shrimps or other food that sinks. He don't eat food that floats anymore (except for live insects or lizards).

That makes sense, shrimp is good for the coloring of a fish.

Shrimp is his staple for 3 months now. I feed him other foods when shrimp is not available in our local market.

Thanks!

My main focus is water quality. My filtration is only a DIY trickle filter powered by 1250L/hr powerhead. My only decoration in my tank is my fish. I don't like to have many decorations in my tank because all the dirt, uneaten food and his poo are stuck on the decoration causing the level of amonia to rise.

I don't have test kits to see my water quality but I'm pretty sure that it's a good quality. I get my water from deep well (electric water pump).

Unfortunately, there's some brown algae are starting to grow in the walls and bottom of the tank. Idk where that came from since my tank does not get any sunlight.

I know the kind you mean, i get it too and my tank doesn`t get any sunlight either. I just scrub it off every now and then and learn to live with it. I guess it shows up a bit more in your tank with no backing paper or substrate :)

How much shrimp do you generall buy? And how much does it cost? and how long does it last? Sorry for the triple question haha.

Yes. Is it normal? Since I started fishkeeping there's always brown algae. What I do is I just wipe it. And yes it is so visible because i don't have any substrate or decoration so the algae will stick to the glass instead to the decoration or substrate.

I buy fresh live shrimp at the size of 2 inches long every saturday morning in our local wet market. It stays for me a week. All I do is wash it then let it dry for 30 minutes so that it won't stick when it got frozen. I buy 20 pesos for about 60 pieces of 2 inches long shrimp. Fyi, 1$ = 44 pesos.
