You can take a water sample to lfs and they should test it for free

But iam afraid they wont let me cuz i go there so often and iam afraid they find me annoying. Singaporeans are known by our neighbours as the most stingy and intolerant people so... i rather get my own. I prefer a cheaper 1 tho. I should be upgrading my tank in a years time to a large pond.

Ok, thank you, I will contact the Admin and get the accounts merged. If the account cannot be merged, the account with the lowest post count will be deleted, can you try to limit posting off that account.

Thank you.

MODERATOR NOTE - Apology for posting this in the thread but it needs sorting out.
