Getting “fishy” at Pasar Pudu
Got up quite early today. Reason being, I want to go to Pasar Pudu. For those who don’t know, Jalan Pasar Pudu is known for its many shops selling electronic goods and components. And you can also find people selling sex enhancement products there (ehemmm). Well, that’s not the reason I went there. My aims today are
- Survey the price for a new aquarium
- Buy new fish for my aquarium
- Survey the price of the speaker for my karaoke amplifier system (will blog this at later date once I got it)
Yes, I’m too passionate with my new hobby now. I think it is the time already for me to set up a new aquarium – a bigger new aquarium.
Suprisingly, there is one road there packed with people selling fishes, and fish / aquarium related products. So if you like to take downtown street kind of shopping (rather than strolling a very well organized and air conditioned pet outlets in shopping mall), this is the place to come.
One major things that you will immediately notice – the price is bloody cheap here. I got fascinated with an array of colourful fishes being displayed here.
And if you are looking at aquarium related products – filter, filter media, powerhead, air bubble, you name what – you can also find them here, and again, at the price way cheaper than those high class shops.
See that Jebo 838 external filter? The “amoi” there can give that for RM100. Interesting. This kind of external canister filter having of price tag of RM200 and above in the normal shops that I went before. I will be using that for my new aquarium. What nice about it is that it has 4 layers of filtration in it.
With plants inside my aquarium, I have regulated the light to turn on and off in 6 hours interval. With that much lights and nitrits from nitrification process, algea blooms rather rapidly in my aquarium. Every 2 days I have to scrape to algea from the aquarium glass.
Heard that what we called “Ikan Bandaraya” is a good choice for helping you with the chores. I’m going to get 2 for my aquarium. Don’t want to get too much as I will overload the biological filter of my aquarium.
But wait. Can I mix it with the existing fishes? Well, the book that I bought last week come to rescue.
Let see what we have here.
Good! Very good indeed. Ease of keeping is 1 – meaning it’s very easy to keep this fish. And it is safe with small fish (well, I have small guppies and small neon tetras). It is also algae-eating herbivore. Prefect. Prett neat huh!
Anyway, after strolling around, I’m rather a bit dissapointed that I couldn’t find any aquarium that interest me. All has a basic look. Guess I’ll pay a visit to The Pet Safari at Ikano Power Centre after this. They have quite a decent choices of aquarium there. Well, didn’t I tell you that I’m very picky?
Got back home, acclimate the fish that I just bought.
It’s time to go to The Pet Safari at Ikano Power Centre.
