Hey everyone! So... The last time I posted on fishlore was about two years ago. There are lots of new faces but also some familiar ones that I've seen so far. Two years is quite a long time and I remember that I was quite the noob when I first joined. I'm still not as experienced as most of you, but I now know a little more than before Right now I'm on vacation visiting my family in Taiwan and I saw lots of family run aquarium stores. I went in a couple and was shocked by how inexpensive everything was!! I kinda just bought everything on impulse so I'm not really sure if this stuff is good since there were no familiar brands. I got a filter, filter cartridges, plant food (tablet and liquid form), water conditioner, and a couple of decos. I haven't gotten a light or heater yet, but I will soon. The reason I haven't gotten a heater yet is because all of them have a dial thingy to regulate the temp. I don't know if these are good (I've never used them before) and none of the stores sells the ones with the valve on top: they said they were "old fashioned" Has anyone used these before and are they good to use? Has anyone used Otto water conditioner and liquid plant food? There is also this tablet plant food that I got. Anyone used it before? And this filter? There is no brand name on it. Is it big enough for a five gallon tank? On the box it says it turns 60 gallons/hour. Not sure if its big enough... BTW pics of everything will be in next post... Thanks in advance!
