Green Water: Yes
Country: Indonesia


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?

Green Water: Yes
Country: Singapore

It can even be 5% depending on the hours and intensity of sunlight, amount of feed, number of fishes, how often water is changed, depth of water etc. Trial and error and one will get the balance smile.gif
