Hello

I have two fiber tubs that hosting my 20 ranchu and orandas, tubs positioned on top of my house. This is covered by direct sunlight all day long. Tubs was setup like 1 months ago, I was wondering if sunlight is too much for my fishes?

water in the tub is so green i cant even see my fishes , I have read about cultivating greenwater in this forum, tubs water gone green after 3-4 days after tub setup. Did not do much, dunno if this is the precise technique that we called greenwater. every 2-3 days Im doing water change in the morning around 30% then water became clearer at least the fishes are visible but later on in the afternoon became so green that make fishes not visible. Is this normal?

Thanks

Hi Kayleen

Green water though very beneficial must be properly managed by cutting the water by adding fresh or shading your tubs or both. The rule I was tought was your should be able to see your hand beneath the water at a depth of approx 10 - 12 inches. The algae acts as filtration, food and releases oxygen during the day, but if it gets to green it may collapse and release toxins killing your fish. Also be careful of bubbles forming in the fins and try not to overstock.

Regards

Keith
