PostForum: Fishkeeping and Aquaristics   Posted: Thu Sep 24, 2015 12:24 pm   Subject: Re: Pest control at home - precautions for tank - pls sugges
Now a days pest control treatment is quite safe and you need not worry about your tank being affected. Presume the tank is covered and hence no problem. Pest control techniques use gel based compounds for cockroaches and water based spray for ants which are sprayed only on windows and door frames. No fumigation.

I have 2 tanks - one 5 feet and one 2.5 feet and never faced any problem. I take annual contract from PCI and have been doing the control for more than 5 years now.

Hope this helps.

Nothing like Eheim Jaeger - very precise and no temp fluctuations. It is a one time investment, but you are assured of your temperature in the tank. There is a saying - Mehenga roye ek baar, sasta roye baar baar (expensive - you cry only once, cheap - you cry everytime). Realized that buying good baranded aquarium stuff is worth than going for chinese stuff, at least in electronics.

I DISAGREE with Nidhi .... Have been using bottled/packaged drinking water in my aquarium for past 2 years and never had an issue with fish Health. I have red parrots and oscars in my 5 feet tank and tetras in 2.5 feet planted tank. Always used this water for changes.

Fishes will get their nutrients and minerals from good quality food fed to them.  In my planted tank, I do add micro and macro plant nutrients - more so for plant growth.

Bottom line - GOOD QUALITY FOOD, VARIETY OF FOOD and weekly Water changes to keep your fish healthy.

Hope this helps.

Any good quality pellet food - Taiyo or Gene Eleven for chiclids are good for them. You can always buy fresh prawns from fish market and chop them in to small pieces to feed them .... they enjoy prawns.

However, you had to be careful - i had 2 small tiger oscars and one become so fussy that would eat only shrimps and not touch any other pellet food. You will have to condition them.

PostForum: Fish Food   Posted: Wed Jul 17, 2013 9:22 am   Subject: Re: Food for Juvenile Oscar's
Oscars are very hardy fish and love variety of food. I had a full grown Tiger Oscar and currently have 2 Albion Oscars. Food is alternated - Gene Eleven Color Plus (http://www.aquaremedies.com/gene-elevenfishfeed.html) - Taiyo Economy mixed with Aini/Osaka Spirulina - Shrimp-E. Of course, they are most happy with Shrimp-E but rotation of different kind of food is necessary.

Initiate the food with small quantities and they get used to the same but expect delite when you feed them Shrimp-E. they just enjoy the same and is given as treat twice a week.

I also feed them only once a day - in the evening. Hope this helps.

Many Thanks Sudheer. That's what I have done currently by directing the flow of Boyu SP1300 to the top filter.

Any idea for a 20 gallon tank what should be the flow rate of the pump - will 400 L/H should suffice? The capacity of my tank is 100 Litres.

Which is a good powerhead to use - RS, Boyu, .......

Thanks and Regards

My Yuemei filteration pump YM-1380G has stopped working inspit of cleaning the same. It works intermittently but giving me trouble and hence looking for replacement.

Need help for the same -
- either replacement with new pump
- alternative for the same if the same YM-1380G is not available - tried looking in Rezimental Bazar for spare but no luck

Currently attached to Boyu SP-1300 internal filter and directing the flow to top filteration unit. But need back up soon.

I am from Hyderabad and any help would be appreciated.

Put some pots or structures for them to hide. I have 2 pairs and they are very possessive about their sunken ship.

Good quality food is important - I have given my fishes food in rotation - Taiyo Economy, Spirulina granuales, blood worms and e-shrimps.

Hope you also haqve a good filteration unit as the wate content for 5 pairs would be high.

Salvini are very aggressive and highly territorial fish. They can give tough time to red Devil and Oscar - that's what my Salvini is currently doing. It all depends when the fishes are introduced in the tank - if Salvini has already established itself, then diffuclt to introduce any new fish in the tank.

If they are juveniles and introduced together with other fishes, then you can take a chance since each one adapts and establishes their territory. Hope this helps
