Red Cherry Shrimp


This is my red cherry shirmps.. about 10 - 15 of them, eating algae wafer.

Some of the articles about red cherry shrimp, taken from Petshrimp.com.

The red cherry shrimp is a red color variation of the dwarf shrimp Neocaridina denticulata sinensis, which hails from southern China, Taiwan and northern Vietnam and which has even been widely introduced into Hawaii. The red variety of the shrimp was originally bred in Taiwan. The red color variation of N. denticulata sinensis does not occur in the wild.

The red coloration of this shrimp depends on several factors such as mood, water conditions and food. Hence, when these shrimp first arrive in new aquaria after shipping, they have very little red on their bodies and most animals are extremely pale. The red coloration returns with time and when the shrimp finally settle in, they maintain their red coloration at all times. Young animals also need quite some time to become fully colored out. Females who are carrying eggs are especially deep red, whereas males tend to be much paler than females . However, females start carrying eggs before they are fully colored up.

Christmas Moss

Sempena Hari Natal (Christmas Day), maka diterbitkan artikel berkenaan tumbuhan akuatik yang diberi nama christmas moss.

What is christmas moss? Read the article below, taken from Aquatic Eden.

Christmas Moss is as mysterious as some of the other mosses in the aquarium hobby. There is no consensus on its geographic origins and even the scientific name has a tendency to change. Its growth habits and appearance are just as varied. When grown attached to a piece of driftwood or rock, it forms triangular fronds in the shape of Christmas trees (hence the common name). If allowed to grow free floating, it tends to have a much less organized appearance and the triangular fronds are much less pronounced. In this form, it is often confused for the much more common Java Moss. In lower light, it grows much less densely, and again, is often much less organized in structure. Only under higher light conditions, attached or anchored to an object, does Christmas Moss show its true structure. It will form a pillowy bush of triangular fronds that is very attractive and undemanding.


My christmas moss is in the circle inside this picture. Others are java moss. Still growing and growing. Can you recognize the difference between christmas moss and java moss?

My Aquarium #5

This is my new external canister filter.. Tetra EX90 Power Filter.. Price is RM3xx..


So this filter will replace my hang on back (HOB) filter (black object at the back of the aquarium).



Some explaination about canister filter, taken from http://www.firsttankguide.net/canister.php


Canister Filter Diagram

Canister filters are filters that remove the water from a tank through an intake tube, sieve, or valve, run it through filter media in a pressurized canister, and then pump the water back into the tank via spill way or spray bar.

Canister filters draw water up a lift tube and into a filter chamber or canister where the water is pushed through a series of filter media (bottom-to-top, top-to-bottom, or back-to-front, depending on filter model) which provides chemical, biological, and/or mechanical filtration (depending on the media used). After the water has gone through the filter media, it is pumped back into the tank. Canister filters always use water pumps to move water. Some models have integral pumps, while other models require a separate pump.

Alleycats - Senyumlah Kuala Lumpur

Alleycats - Senyumlah Kuala Lumpur



Kuala Lumpur senyumanmu
Dipagi ini
Sungguh bererti
Kerna cinta bersemi lagi
Setelah kemarau panjang

Dilebuhraya
Dipapan tanda
Tergambar wajahmu
Dengan kalimat
Cinta untuk kita
Semoga kekal selamanya

( korus )
Bila ku bisikan puisi cinta
Dan tugu peringatan negara
Bagai tersenyum
Dalam diam bergembira
Memberi sokongan cinta
Agar bersinar sentiasa

Berganding tangan
Kita berdua
Menyusuri jalan
Ditengah kota
Sambil senandungkan lagu
Lagu kisah cinta lama

Bilaku bisikan puisi cinta
Dan tugu peringatan negara
Bagai tersenyum
Dalam diam bergembira
Memberi sokongan cinta
Agar bersinar sentiasa

Terima kasih kuucapkan
Oh kepadamu
Kuala Lumpur
Kerna kau telah temukan
Cinta antara kami berdua...

Exists - Kau Akan Pulang

Exists - Kau Akan Pulang

Terhiris perasaan takku hiraukan
Kusudah melupakan salahmu sayang
Semenjak kau tinggalkan keseorangan
Semakin bertambah kegundahan... ohhh

Benarkah keriangan terbias hilang
Di kala rindumu menjelma
Adakah kau sama rasakan peritnya
Sedang kita seharusnya bahagia... berdua

Langit yang berbintang sendiri aku pandangi
Jika dulu engkau di sisi menemani
Kehangatan cinta saat itu
Terbiar layu... tanpamu di sisiku... aku sunyi

Sayang kuharap kau akan pulang
Dan meneduhkan rindu hatiku
Moga cinta kita bisa dikekalkan
Dalam erti cinta sebenarnya

Aku damba kejujuranmu
Untuk kulayarkan kasihku
Keranamu ku mahu kau menjadi milikku

Aku mohon kesetiaanmu
Untuk ku mengecapi rindu
Biarlah kau terus menyemai kasihmu

Wife vs Girlfriend




Some people say:

Wife is a HARIMAU (Tiger)...............
Girlfriend is HARI HARI MAHU

And some say:

Wife is like TV, Girlfriend is like Handphone (HP)

At home watch TV, Go out bring HP.

No money, sell TV. Got money change HP.

Sometimes enjoy TV but most of the time play with HP.

TV free for life but HP, if you don't pay, the services will be terminated.

TV is big, bulky and most of the time old but HP is cute, slim, curvy and very portable at any time.

Operational cost for TV is often acceptable but for HP is high and often demanding.

Most Important, TV got remote but HP don't have.

Last but not least.......

TV do not have virus but HP have VIRUS......
Once get it, finished LAH!

So better choose TV lah...
