Re: Outdoor tank
I'm from Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur to be exact. The other reason I shelter my tank is because I do not want my tank to over spill with rain water during a heavy thunderstorm.
Alfred, do you keep any floating plants to prevent excessive sun light? If I don't use any shelter for my tank, will a whole blanket of lemna minor deters alot of sunlight from reaching below?
I just found out yesterday that the shrimps(about 3 inches) I got in my 55 gallons tank ate the young shoots of my dwarf sword plantlets. I reckon the Malaysian shrimps do not like algae at all. As a scavenger they are alright but not as an algae eater.
