Hi Siak Boon,
Is this eco sand system the sales man selling to you?

If it is, then keeping monster fish shd be good in this sytem,
u can even diy one if u are free.

Found this link here,read the details if it looks good to u

Looks like just an undergravel filter to me. Can someone explain to me the difference?

looks good.. but long term wise, won't there be slug built-up? end up will still need to do a major cleanup?

I think long term may get clogged if the waste build up is faster than removed by bacteria. Unless you are keeping very few fishes.

hi Asia_landscape,

how u know "If it is, then keeping monster fish shd be good in this system"?

anyway, as i mentioned juz happen to come across it and found this system interesting and i do a search..not much detail reviews on it.
ya,they also said they will do yearly maintenance for you at annual fee. then every 3mths they come and check the condition of the system for you too.
but guys, dont get me wrong i am not trying to saboh their business or anyhow, just keen to find out in this forum if anyone already installed such system at home. Maybe some honest feedback.
cheers
