Water Level for Ranchu Tank vs FGTTub

Hey guys。。
Currently housing my ranchus in tank。。
So i have seen a lot of breeders in their farm, they use cement tub to house their ranchus and their water level is very low, say 1 ft like that only?
and for us keeping it in tanks, usually we will fill the water level up to, say 90% of the tank。。 and mostly our tank is 1。5ft to 2ft。。。
Is it better for ranchus to be house in low water level? Bcos thats what i see in farms。。。 probably they dont need to swim up and down, and instead they should swim left and right? lol。。
Usually SVR will be kept in tanks so can see the curve and such but is it better to house in tubs for them to develop better?
Sorry for all the noob questions。。。 heehee

So itll be another learning curve for me also。。。 haha。。 yea。。 cos i planning to change it to tub。。 there will be a buyer coming to take my 4ft tank。。
now thinking of getting a FGT with front panel。。。
Then was watching videos and realised the breeders in farms usually dont house their ranchu in high water levels。。。 but of cos their cement tank is super huge and the ranchus can swim all over the place。。
and they dont have complicated filter system。。 just a air stone and sponge filter。。 wondering where all the poo poo goes。。。 or they change water daily。。。
>Interesting topic, i like it
Many of us have seen Ranchu, I refer to TVR usually kept in a shallow water with minimun water current as such no mechanical filter and only sponge filter。
This is to ensure TVR grow nicely without over stress swimming against the strong current and to avoid any potential damage to the beautiful tail。
As for SVR, can be seen at shallow water level as well but doesnt mean they dont do well in deep water。
Many breeders or hobbyists kept Ranchu in tub for easy maintenance。
Ranchu to keep in shallow water is no longer a trend, many breeders/ hobbyists have slowly change their mindset to appreciate the ranchu in the tank with water level slowing inclining over a period。
Some hobbyists kept their Ranchu in 2。5 -3 depth which really impressive and even more gorgeous。
I met different gurus with different perceptions, but one thing in common which they strongly recommended is wc daily and frequent small feeding rather than 1 or 2 heavy meals。
There is no right of wrong to keep Ranchu(SVR) in shallow or deep water, is all about the adaptability and water chemistry。
Maybe other bros can share their point of views

WC daily is really the best way to keep ranchu。。。。 but i believe a lot of us cant afford to do that。。 like me。。 =x
I usually will do 100% WC and 50% WC once a week。。。
Anyway, anyone got lobang to get FGT with front panel at a good price?
and also, what will be the best filtration for ranchu? just a sponge filter since wont create much water current? because im using OHF which creates quite a bit of current and scared then it will stress my ranchu too much。。
>Time consuming is the common constrain to most hobbyists, I will try to wc every alternate day instead of daily。
Front panel FGT can be found at Seaview, mainland and pasir ris。
If not can try to look at marketplace for resale FGT。
>I prefer 1 - 1。5 ft depth for my ranchus。 With big swimming area。
Strong backbone swimming without struggle。 Swaying their tails left and right。。。 steady steady。。。 enjoyable。 I also like crystal clear water。 putting a UV filter with 20% daily WC will work。 If this works for you。。 just give me a ";like"; keke。

Are u using tank or FGT?
>got to agree diff hobbyist diff methods。
for me personally the initial stage is crucial to determine how you want to enjoy your ranchus。
for svr, i prefer deep water tanks。 this however can only be achieved provided i have the budget for a quality svr with strong backbone, tail and swimming posture。 for a juvenile quality svr i would still keep in lower water range gradually increasing as it masses up。
however, getting a quality ranchu is easy, maintenance and grooming is the tricky part。
got to have commitments and cultivate good keeping habits。
last time i always say this, which make some people angry and offended !
let the fish speak words of its keeper。
that one last time lah。。。young time ya ya papaya。。。
>Morning guys!
I have just started keeping ranchus 2 months ago and I am so glad to join this community and learning from the bros here。 Really learnt a lot in terms of diet, water and tank maintenance Currently I have my 3 fat babies, ok not really babies in that sense, in my 2 foot tank and let me assure you this is just temporary, which leads me to this topic。
I am currently considering a 4 foot fibre glass tank/ tub or a 3 foot glass tank。 I would like to ask for fibre glass tank, is wiping down the tank once in a while necessary? I recall somewhere in this forum someone mentioning that for tank maintenance, some prefer a spanking clean environment, others an algea-filled one with floating duckweeds creating a nitrate sink。 What will you guys prefer? Appreciate if you guys can share with me your view
