Happened to be in Penang again for this weekend. So let’s check out a little about fish shop in Penang. I went to this Chew Thean Yeang (CTY) fish shop at Jalan Burma.
This shop is quite huge, 3 floors, all selling fishes, aquatic plants and aquarium related products.
First floor mainly selling fishes, and there’s section for other pet too.
Second floor selling aquarium related products – filter, test kits, air pump, fish food, lamp – to name a few.
And the third floor is dedicated for aquarium showroom. So many nicely decorated aquarium. Walk around a little to get an idea on how to design my next aquarium.
I also checking the price of aquarium chiller here. Damn. RM1000++. There’s RM750 one, but out of stock. Sign. This aquarium chiller / temperature of water in aquarium is the only thing that is still in the way between me and starting up my next aquarium project. It’s quite a lot of money to invest.
Anyhow, don’t want to come here for nothing. So I bougth the following water surface skimmer. Guess I better starts collecting the equipment needed for my next aquarium project.
Actually, I just recently read about this surface skimmer. If you have a low flow of water into the aquarium, organic film will build at the surface of water. This will give poor gas exchange at the surface of water, i.e. less oxygen dissolved in the water and less carbon dioxide released from the water. So, this surface skimmer will actually remove this from the surface of water.
