Water for my aquarium - in Thailand

Hi there,

I kept fish a few years back when I lived back home in the UK, but have had to relearn a lot here and it's all starting to come back to me.

I will be getting a 20-30 gallon tank in the next few days to create a planted tropical community tank.

My question is regarding water. Here in Thailand, I have noticed that the aquariums all seem to just suggest using RO water (readily available here with 5 litres costing pennies) or rainwater! I have read that RO water needs minerals added to it to be good for aquariums and I am not sure how available they would be here.

Tap water here is not safe to drink and I wondered if after using a dechlorination it would be safe for my aquarium?

I am looking for as many suggestions as possible that are available here in Thailand. - dechlorinators are readily available although not names like tetra, etc.

Hi All,

I have recently installed my first pond and just wanted some advice from experienced pond keepers on the best way of introducing first fish,

So the pond has been established for a week so far, has been running with filter on since setup - the volume is 1,000 litres so only looking to add a small number of comets - filter is a UVC for a 10,000 litre pond so is sufficient. De-chlorinator was added on setup too.

I have kept fish indoors for a number of years but wanted to know how long to leave the pond running before adding fish and best method to cycle the pond, i've seen lots of different ways of doing so but wanted to see what is the best practice.

I am thinking add plants after the fish? as there will be no nutrient for the plants to thrive on?

If needed i can supply pictures to show setup,

Thanks in advance

Hello GeordieGirl, I think the other forum is still "experimental" I can't get into it either .......and there are only questions no replies, so stick with this forum.

For what its worth, the pondoVac 2 became obsolete about 10 years ago, so I doubt you will get a manual for it.

There is the pondoVac 5 and pondoVac premium available

Hi, I just joined the forum and then clicked on the link for the new forum.

I signed up on the new one and was told that you had sent me a verification email but none has arrived, only the original one from this forum.

I have tried to get it resent twice but it's not there .. no, not even in my spam box. When I tried to sign up again it said my user name wasn't available, but I can't login because I haven't verified. :/

Iím very sorry to read this. I had been wondering how she was getting on but thought I would leave it for a bit before asking. Thanks for the update, though.

It's very upsetting when a goldfish dies, especially one which has been part of the household/family for so many years, so hope you're all "bearing up" ok.

Just an update, she died last Thursday night whilst we were out. She was in trouble so it was the best thing really. Thank you.

Today I've noticed that one of my common Freshwater algea shrimp was fanning multiple eggs on a plant. I am inexperienced with shrimp breeding so any advice would be appreciated.

Tank size 20g quite well planted with a few added floating and plastic plants

Let me know if you need any other parameters for this

Hi,
Thanks for that.
So there needs to be a balance between co2 and light then? Presumably that's achieved by trial and error to see what works best? Is it easier to monitor how much pressurized co2 you're dosing than it would be if you're using a liquid one?
I'm just inquiring for now. Soon i'll be replacing my gravel with a fertilized substrate, and then planting real plantys for the first time. I'm curious to know which technique works best.
Thanks again.
