Hi guys! i'm new to this forum and this is my first post! i am from Singapore and forums are a thing in a past now over here, i love reading tank journals and see how it progresses and so i am setting up one here!

I have been in the aquarium hobby for more than decade and were in the marine hobby for the past few years. Recently came back with a 100 gallon tank for altum angels and decided to set up this one in my bedroom!

Tank: 60x45x36cm Front crystal rimless tank

Light: Osun WWRGB 66W LED

Filtration: Eheim 2215

Co2: 3.5L co2 tank with Qanvee inline co2 diffuserHardscape: Seiyru stones and Kusri driftwood

Substrate: 2 packs of ADA Amazonia II

Fertilizers: APT complete

Plant list: HC Cuba, Rotala green, Rotala Vietnam Hra, Rotala Macrandra, Rotala Bonsai, Ludwigia Arcuata, multiple Bucephalandra species, Mini Pellia, Weeping Moss, Microsorum Pteropus "needle leaf", hygrophilla Araguaia & Pogostemon Helferi.

These lights are supposed to rival the Chihiros WRGB and are half the price! I removed the lenses since my tank is only 36cm tall and the color blends better without the lens.

Welcome and congratulations on the tank.
Well done

How come forums and tank journals are a thing of the past in Singapore?
How do people keep track and share their "hit and misses" over there?

Its actually a really simple low tech 120x60x60cm tank with a sump system.

Live stock inside are 4x 2018 Wild Altums, 3x German F1 Red back manacapuru, 2x Wild brown discus, 4x Wild heckel discus along with 20 rummy nose tetras, a group of corydoras and some royal whiptails!

Thank you! There used to be 2 forums with pretty high traffic in Singapore, but these days its pretty much a dead town.. Many have migrated to Facebook and other social medias..
