My experience of using Seachem Prime as a water conditioner has certainly been good...
So I decided to buy a 2 litre bottle which costs me $58!

Pretty much looks like a regular bleach container, don't you think so?

Clown Loaches!

It just pondered upon me that the lunar zodiac animal for Lunar New Year 2010 happens to be the tiger...

Don't you think it would be auspicious to include fishes with tiger colouration / markings into your tank?

Amazing!! It makes me wanna go find all of them!

SINGAPORE: Investigations are being carried out after several fish died at a local koi competiton. One fish owner, Jemmy Tan, is suspecting foul play.

He said all the fish in the Young Koi Show were placed in the same type of water but only his batch of 10 were affected.

A koi can command a market value of up to S$20,000 and Mr Tan is estimating his losses run into tens of thousands of dollars.

But this isn't the first time mischief has plagued the show. Mr Tan said one of his championship fish had its tail cut after winning the title a few years.

Mr Tan has filed a police report and has sent his fish for further analysis. - CNA/vm

Can't believe such a thing actually happened in Singapore.

I wonder if the people were so jealous that they had to resort to doing this.
