Marine & Tropical Fish Update, in Johor Bahru

Johor Bahru is a good place for keeping Marine salt water fish and over time I keep changing the layout of the tank in keeping with the fish inside, when I first kept marine fish, like everyone starting out on  what can be, an expensive hobby, I wanted everything that you could find on a reef at sea,

Also in the early days in JB i had no idea where to find the pet shops that sold fish never mind salt water marine fish, but like everything else, chatting to other people you find out and one thing leads to another and before long I found about 5 that sell reef fish and live rocks.

So then I had to decide the size of the tanks and the location of them,(for easy access to the pipes and filtration systems I would need to install.)

All worked out well and this is the tank all set up.

Tropical Fish Tanks.

Tropical fish are much easier to keep than the salt water fish but non the less you still have to work at it to keep the tanks looking at their best at all times, and this mean lots of cleaning scraping of the glass on the inside, changing filtration media etc, and the feeding of the many different fish.

In this tropical tank you can see chiclids, lizard fish, behind the rocks are catfish, ghost fish, etc.

This is another of my tropical tanks, taken from side corner angle, lots of small fish inhere but not showing on picture, guppy's etc catfish small chic-lid,

These are three of my favourite fish, but the tank is to small now and this weekend i shall be installing much bigger tank around 40gal from the present 20 gal, this will enable the fish to grow,

To Buy Marine fish in Johor Bahru the shop I get mine from is called Coral Aquarium in Skudai.

Hi Effi I get my marine fish from Coral Aquarium and they have been very good to me. Don't forget to barter on the prices.

but they get lots of fresh stock in weekly.
