Turtle? Cool.
It is looking a bit bare at the moment, which I would have thought would encourage aggression. Are you going to play with decor a bit? /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Of course, malayan box turtle will eat fish but my turtle is still a kid so no need to worry and I already put it in another cage.

I plan a few thing for my tank about gravel,bogwood,aquatic plants,decor things and I confused which type of filtration powerful and clean for the tank..I don't think my filtration will enough powerful and still got many fish's feces in the tank(but my three-spotted gouramis will eat it /tongue.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":p" border="0" alt="tongue.gif" />)

So I need to ask many question..
What is gravel(give the main points and plants can be live on the gravel?Gravel like soil?),which aquatic plants should be planted,and which type of filtration powerful,easy handling..what light function for?

and how about my swamp cabbage? need add or no need? /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" /> (sorry,im not too professional on it)

Can we just rewind a little bit here?

Lian you have two giant gourami in a tiny tank. This is not in any way, shape or form, a viable option. Now, I appreciate you are not in the UK, and maybe things are a little different in your home country as far as fishkeeping is concerned, but regardless of any social and cultural differences two giant gourami in a small tank isn't going to work.

You need to understand the nitrogen cycle, I think I linked to this in a reply to one of your previous posts. Someone else has recommended you some reading material too, I think you need to understand the basics, what sort of fish are suitable for keeping in a home aquarium and go from there. I think you need to really understand the species you want to keep. Then maybe you'll find a suitable species for the tank you have. Then you can have fun with your aquascaping, you'll be able to match the tank to the fish and get the decor right for their needs. It's not about what you want, it's about what the fish need. Fit what you can provide with what a fish needs and you will have a much better experience /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Hope that doesn't sound harsh, it's not meant to, I just think you and your fish would be happier if you fully understood what they need /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />
