    Swimming Pool Heater Pump for heating up centralised system fish room

    Well the link below is where I first found the heat pump for sale but the cost was a little prohibitive hence I hunted around to see if I can find similar item for a cheaper price. I suppose these heat pump was design specifically to be use for aquaculture and it is probably design very...

    Swimming Pool Heater Pump for heating up centralised system fish room

    What if you connect it to a swirl filter to remove the solid first then filter it through a series of brush and mesh and foams before directing the water to the heat pump? I know for sure that this was used in big scale aquaculture but does that mean they have heat pump of a different calibre...

It will work as long as the...

    Struggling with HC

    If that's the only way it worked then it must be the problem with a CO2 distribution. What is your flow pattern in your tank? do you have any other mean of increasing flow in the tank? I used to struggle with any carpet plants. I added filters after filter hoping to increase the flow of the tank...

    Large scale ornamental shrimp breeding in china

    For those who ever wondered how ornamental shrimp are bred in large scale, watch the video in the link below and prepared to be awed. Jealousy is not even a word enough to describe my emotion. lol http://en.aquanet.tv/Video/215-the-shri ... w-variants

    Re: CRS baby!!! Well I think they would stay well out of the filter as the newly hatch shrimplings looks much bigger than the pore of the fine pore sponge that I have on my inlet.

    Logi-cat's Shrimp Tank (RCS + CRS + Amano)

    I had CRS in tank without substrate before but it was quite heavily planted. I think it can do without substrate but you can to fill it up with plants to make the shrimp feel secure.

    Re: CRS baby!!! I'm using modified tetra tex 1200 with a sponge block at the intake pipe and that seemed to work alright. However, saying that I haven't clean the filter for 6 month! So I won't know if there is any baby shrimp in the filter itself. lol
