Thanks for the comments...

I have not tested the nitrate for quite some time as it always disappointed me with a red indicator :( See liao sad so decided dont see better :D

My pandan seems to be growing but they never get dark green colour, always light green. My wife says is unhealthy and will not smell nice if is light green. I wonder why the pandan leaves are in this colour? Any expert?

Lately the tip of the leaves of most plants turn brown, any advise what has happened? What have I done wrong which caused this to the plants? Any expert?

I have mix views regarding the plants. Some say nice and some say is unsightly :( Wonder if I should remove the plants if they didnt help in the nitrate issue... Welcome any input. Thanks.

The water doesn't contain all the nutrients needed for the plant to develop like it normally would in soil.

You could perhaps rotate the plants in and out of the pond. Couple of weeks in nutrient rich hydroponics solution, couple of weeks in pond.

Needs experimentation.

Unhealthy look Pandan means good water parameters

Haha bro, I think it is tough to remove the plants as their roots are sticked to the media, sponge and rocks, etc... I am lazy to do that too... I just enjoy laying back and watching my fish. This sumo xb is really eye catching in the pond :D

Thanks bro... I remember this is what you told me last time :D unhealthy plant means good water :) Maybe I should test the nitrate tomorrow and give myself a surprise... Lol... But I think I will still get a red indication as usual :o

That's one humongous XB. Real solid piece.

Thks bro Mercury :)

Today I am very happy to have 2 boys at my patio gate asking me if I could let them come in to see my fish. How will I reject this request from the kids? They are really enthusiastic at their age of 12 year old. It reminds me that my dad bought me my first arowana around this age too, but I know nothing about fish keeping then...,

Both of them are quite knowledgeable in a way as they easily identify some of my fish, especially my hybrid catfish. They went on to tell me more about the RTC which they really like, and I am glad to learn from them :)

Before they left, they asked if they can come again... and of course, they will have a biggest welcome from me :)

Is really heart warming to see these youngsters enjoy in this wonderful hobby... At least I can tell my wife, fish keeping is not just an old man hobby, some youngsters do have the passion too :)

Cheers!
