    Realistically, it takes me 2 hours to maintain my 185L tank. That includes all the above and cleaning the canister filters, bi-weekly. If need to clean canister tubings, lily pipes and intake will take even longer....

    Large tank has the advantage of not needing to do water change every week if no algae, low fish/shrimp stock.
    Haha. Yes, seems like we have lots of chores weekly/bi-weekly. :P Just kidding, I believe most of us enjoy the tank maintenance time right? At that time, just turn on some music, let yourself relax and better no nagging from wife, no disturbing from kids...etc. Heaven!

    Normally it takes me around 45mins to do simple weekly maintenance for 2ft tank. The other 2 small tank can take about 30mins. That is without cleaning filter, tubing and lily pipes.

    The rewards of weekly maintenance is you can really enjoy the crystal clear water tank for another week OR two. That is the fun of our hobbyists, ya?

    Oh, BTW, just an small update from my tank, I have remove all "mohawk" hair from the "jungle man" in my tank. Now it is really botak liao! The reason was the moss grew too fast and floated up, cover lots of lighting, and also the nest for all leftover food...etc. So, here you go! Shoosshh..! I recorded that historic moment here:

    Enjoy the week, guys!

    "Passionately Curious"

    I have placed some Mini fissiden moss on the wood this time. Hopefully, this type will not go wild and hence, easier to maintain than last time. Now need to be patient to watch it grown. ✌️

    Oh, some wipping moss is still kept at the tip of the driftwood, so that it can get a nice effect later on. 🤞

    You have sharp eyes, yes, that is a small cave on driftwoods. Originally, it looked like this.

    Re: "Passionately Curious"

    Just capture some photos of the “Passionately Curious” tank tonight. My peaceful inspiration everyday is here.











    Oh. Next to the main tank is my low-tech nano for betta: “The Betta Realm”. One day I might write up a small journal about this nano tank?

    Thanks bro.

    The inlet lily pipe (and also outlet) cleaning:
    - I soak them in the solutions of bleach and water (aga aga, not sure how is the exact propotion depends how dirty is this. Very dirty need to put more bleach or extend the time of soaking.)
    - Soaking for about 15-30mins. In the meantime, I normally clean the filter and media and hoses.
    - Clean with the twisted pipe cleaners. At this time, it is much easier for the dirt to be removed.
    - Clean thoroughly with tap water
    - Rinse thoroughly with Prime water (dechlorination process).

    Re: "Passionately Curious"

    I didn't even realise it's been so long since!
    But I've stopped planted tanks ever since I enlisted. But i got posted to HQ as an Intel Spec and am living the 8-5 life now . Not always 8-5 since I'm still needed for exercise and stuffs but I'm able to go home almost everyday!

    Since last Dec, I've gotten myself a 5ft tank and I'm now into predator fishes!
