could be a combination of factors... don't think rainwater alone is that poisonous... if it was, your whole tank up lorry already.

considered the filter yet?

try to work within your constraints.

if family really not supportive of pets, you must consider if you can pursue this hobby at this time.

u do not want to be unintentionally cruel to your pets by not being able to provide them with the proper care.

no point trying to make do with a "minimalist" set-up and u end up picking dead fish out of your tank all the time.

u can replenish your tank with cheap guppies, mollies or platies or even catch them free from the longkang but the end result will be the same: dead fish because your set-up is not enough for their healthy survival.

even if they survive, they won't be healthy.

i can sense that you care for your fishes and u want to pursue this hobby but its better to have your family's understanding and support.

its not right to do what they don't agree with as everyone is living in the same house.

LOL! Dun go at night la! so dark how to catch?

seaview and straits aquarium are both at seletar west farmway. near jalan kayu.

the place quite ulu. best to go in the day.

i also not sure which longkang as the whole stretch there all fish farms. some fish may escape when they flush their tanks.

I checked out the place on google earth n streetdirectory liaoz.
Seletar farmway 1 n 3 is where the said straits is located.
there might be a drain or stream leading to seletar farmway 4 n 5.
so to get to this stream/drain, there muz be a drain or stream at SFW 1 & 3...
BUT most of the area which might have stream is in the forested area... i have been there once if not wrong, there is a drain... still need long net to reach the water... or who gungho enuff to go into the water. should be waist or knee deep.
