Hi adiet_rec

Thank you for starting a thread in this forum :smt003

Pheww.. Finally, there's someone who post here. Well.. I begin to wonder too whether should we retain this forum. But since you've started something, why don't we just at least start a discussion if we want a forum which dedicated specifically to members who speak English.

What do you think?

One comment: Agree.....!!!! :smt004
I think the main problem why most foreign reefers do not read this site is:
they guess that there is no room that accomodate the language problem here in our site.

I have written about this site in Marine Depot Live.When I told the members there ,that I am the member of RF and told them that they can join us too,unfortunately the moderator told me not to write it. so, I erased it...

I dont know why, Didn't he know that RF is a non-profit site? Hmmm.......

My suggestion is , maybe we have to promote our site a lot more.. especially to all member who has friends overseas with same hobbies about this magnificient creatures of the sea, tell them to come and joint us.. and no worries.. we have english language section here...or you have expatriat friends here, tell them too... because I often saw them at sumenep once a while...
once....we had friend name Paul from negeri belanda ( where the h*** are you man..?? share your axperiences and tell us your expert advice a lot more will you..!!he..he.. just kidding.. )
or.. to all member of this forum, no need you're expatiat or foreign citizen just share all about your AQ here and write it out here OK ... salam

Leo, that's strange, normally forum has an objective to broaden our knowledge and experience through sharing, as you've mention that we are a non-profit site who has the same objective as they are, why can't we work together on achieving that objective. Well.. one possible reason I can think of is that they're worried that we might grow larger than them. hehe..

That's true Y'N'R, our member should invite some of their overseas friends, or even get the expatriates in Indonesia to come and share. I'm sure there are quite a number of English speaking expatriates in Jakarta and Bali who share similar hobby to us. Anyway, great input.. Y N'R

...no comment...
cause my english is not well enough...lol...so i just sit and read the thread...lol
No worries slyme, start posting in English. you'll improve, just keep on practicing.

Reef, I have told the moderator about it, but i dont want to make this problem becoming longer and longer, so who care lha.... :(
I just told them about this site, hopefully they can share their experiences with us, but unfortunately they "denied" me heheheh....... :lol:

One thing (maybe this is the main problem), we know that marine depot is an online seller right? Maybe they think that we are the hidden competitor (sorry, for the negative thinking.... :wink: )

Regards,

That's it...no more posting ...come on guys....keep telling your stories here.. :D :D
to @ntony : don't be upset man.. don't let them let u down..marine depot failed..!! try another one.. :D :D that's the main problem if we ask somebody to join us on... in anything.. people always suspicious that we have a hidden agenda... that's why we have to convince them ...so keep trying and never give up..ok :smt002
to adiet_rec : give us your opinion or your brilliant suggestion would u..?? u're the one who pulled the trigger this section... :lol: :lol: do not lempar batu sembunyi tangan... hehe... ( I don't know what that phrase is in english.. :smt003 :smt003 )
OK I'll try this one : I have one question, I 've been keeping this fish for almost 1 year, it,s some kind of damsell fish that we called " dasi biru", but after a few months at my AQ, that fish had transformation the color of the skin.. at the beginning it's white and yellow and blue at the fin but..it become darker.. and darker and finally.. wallahhh.. BLACK.. TOTALLY..!!! from head to tail fin, is that a common appearance just like another marine fish transformation ( angel fish.. that's what I'm talking about ) or just an anomaly because of circumtances or adaptation at new environment....wa da u say...thanx b4

i think its transformation is caused by lack of nutrition it need to thrive & to maintain its coloration in aquarium environment. i'm sorry, i can't tell you which nutrition it needs (cause i'm not fish nutritionist... ;)). may be u can tell us about the food you give to the fishes on your aquarium?

I gave them frozen shrimps and sometimes lettuce..that's all, nothing else.. o..ya.. sometimes I gave them worm either.. soil worm.. ( whatever it call), it's for my song birds actually, but sometimes I give it to my fish... :D :D but the question is why it's just happen only to that fu***n fish.. the others no..blue devil still blue, naso tang , letter six, bluestone ..they just look like the way it should be...or because stress just like @ntony said..obviously they does..every fish does.. can u imagine live at confine space with glass surrounding U..and some kind of ugly creatures (???) watching U everyday at the other side....?? hahaha :lol: :lol: just kidding.. stress at the fish usually just happen at the beginning they put on the AQ, right..?? am I right or right..? but my fish is already one year in my AQ and he still get stress all that long ? poor fishy..!!... salam

Hi mr. Kiev...long time since we met at the workshop right...??
yup. how's your tank? please post some picts on the show off corner area, to share your 'mother nature' powered lighting tank. really want to see its beauty. it really save your 'hepeng' right? :lol:

I gave them frozen shrimps and sometimes lettuce..that's all, nothing else
Did the blue tie fish eat the lettuce? I assumed it didn't. So it would only eat frozen shrimps (do you mean frozen shrimps = mysis shrimp (udang rebon)?). May be because it only eat frozen shrimps/frozen mysis, it needs of nutrition can't be fulfilled, that's why its coloration getting darker (cmiiw).

About the stress, should it adapt to the tank environment (even more it already thrive on your tank for more than 1 year), and there were no other fishes bullying it, I'm pretty sure that stress can't be the cause of this condition.

wow... that really awesome!! can you post it? I really want to see the impeller mod with needle (is it real needle that is usually used to sew?). Also post the foam it generate. Do you still use the Jebo as the bubble chamber?

I'm sorry for late reply.. I went outer town for couple days,back to topic.. the needle I used is syringe needle for injection.. 1 cc injection actually..but sew needle is OK I guess, length about 1 cm, I cut it from the syringe, put on fire and while it hot.. shot the impeller, I put 4-5 needle to each blade of impeller, I still use JEBO for my skimmer with modif ventury like I showed U , my point is.. the bubble that suck down by the ventury.. in the pump.. will slice with the "wheel needle " I made while it rotating..are U follow...? so the expectation is become a lot of fine tiny bubble, maybe I'll try to take picture and post it.. but U know what..?? I still "gaptek" about it :oops: :oops: , but I'll learn.. and let's see what I can do.. :D :D , salam
