@aln hehe sabi nila magbubukas daw uli sa ibang lugar kaso wala naman updates. Yun na sana ang pinaka-malapit dito since bandang Sauyo lang kami. (Quirino Highway)

@seth and ghe.. salamat sa update sir, sayang naman meron na sana malapit LFS sa area ko.

nagikot na ako kahapon...

1. First Depot - closed na
2. Aquaria Manila - friendly mga tao and they gave a quote sa mga gamit nila (medyo mahal lang nga, budget lang ako hehehe)
3. Tropical Brew - naka-usap ko sir eddie, mabait nga at nag-lecture ng unti sa amin ni misis. nag-demo din sa pagpapakain ng isda niya. very nice and clean shop. he quoted a full setup to us, papakainin ko na lang daw pagkatapos. ok sana kaso aside sa medyo mataas din price, gusto ko ako mag-setup para matuto din ako.

kinukulit na ako ng daughter ko sa saltwater aquaruim kaya kailangan ko na talga mag-buo dahil me cycling pa na gagawin, hehehe...

@aln Kung kakayanin niyo, sumabay kayo sa mga pupunta sa Cartimar or exporter. Baka magkita-kita sila sa Sunday, I suggest magpost ka dun. :)
Cheers,
Marty

@seth, sige bisista ako sa thread na yun. pero hindi ako sure kung makakasama kami kasi me lakad na kami this weekend.

btw, is it ok na yung sump ko is katabi lang ng main tank? hindi kasi pwede sa baba ilagay at baka galawin ng toddler ko kaya itatabi ko na lang. also, pag sinabi ko ba ke mang ramon na pang sump yung isang tank eh alam na niya yung saktong sukat ng mga dividers sa loob?

salamat ulit

@aln yup, may mga standard designs naman siya ng sump. BTW galing ako dun kahapon, nagpagawa rin ako ng tank.

Yup wala namang difference kung nasa ilalim, likod or gilid yung sump. Kaya lang siya laging nasa ilalim para maitago yung kalat. Hehehe yung gagawin ko sa tank ko ngayon ganyan din, side by side yung DT sa sump, para yung ilalim ay maging electrical box lang at cabinet ng kalat ko.
Cheers,
Marty

@seth, salamat ulit sir. pinapapunta ko si mang ramon sa bahay para masukatan niya ng husto yung patungan ko. plano ko is 35g sa main and 20g sa sump, ok na kaya ito?

so pwede pala side by side yung 2 tank, so ayus na pala problema ko. hehehe

Pwede na yun. :) Ayaw mo gawing All in One tank na lang? Anyway basta dapat mas mababa yung sump para makapag overflow yung tubig galing DT.

Marty

@seth, yun nga yung iniisip ko eh kung all in one na lang para mas malinis tignan. problema ko lang kasi is pag kailangan na gamitin ung pagpapatungan eh mahihirapan ako ilipat kasi hindi standard ang sukat. anyway pag isipan pa namin pag andun na si mang ramon.

thanks...

Good pm. Matagal na po akong nagbabasa dito (4 days na halos). I was planning to start a salt water aquarium. I have a 75 gal fresh water aquarium, gusto sana namin mag isa pa... Muntik ng magpaset up sa cartimar, mabuti nagbasa po muna ako dito, kung hindi malamang naloko na ako, heheheh... Pero hindi ko pa rin naiintindihan po pano magsimula. Puwede po bang pa explain po muna ano po ang dapat na set up kung balak po namin 75 gal salt water aquarium?

Salamat po...
