This Week I Learned 2019 - Week 11

Continue from last week or something before that.

What else I've learned this week not within this post? Still continue with the seventh week of ornamental fish culture learning. This week we looked into caring of your fishes in term of feeding and observation; siphon and larval removal. Also the start of discussion on larval rearing of Elacatinus figaro (Barber Goby) and Carassius auratus (Goldfish). The paper of the week is the Siamese fighting fish on the limited researches done scientifically. Concluding the week, HTTP::AnyUA is the Perl module we reviewed this week.

谁是你生命中最特殊的女朋友? 想不到,龙应台都已经67岁了。多年前,曾经读过的《野火集》。 如今,重想起来,仔细内容也不记得了,只有模糊糊的印象,还有少许的情绪。当然,毕竟都有些年纪了,也许是时候重温一下,再重新阅读这书。有些书,是要每年去重读一片,有些书,是要马上丢进垃圾桶。


What is something we usually do but still do it the wrong way? Taking medication at the right time. According to MyHealth portal, the right time to take your medication depends on the daily frequency as shown below. What's surprising that there are medication for 4 dosages per day. Must be quite a challenge to take those medications on time every 6 hours as we have to plan for meal time if the medication is only taken before or after meal.

(1) 1 dosage / day: 8 a.m.
(2) 2 dosages / day: 8 a.m. / 8 p.m.
(3) 3 dosages / day: 6 a.m. / 2 p.m. / 10 p.m.
(4) 4 dosages / day: 6 a.m. / 12 p.m. / 6 p.m. / 12 a.m.

According to MyHealth portal again, another misconception we have is taking medication before meal. It doesn't means that we should take it before we eat our meal. It should be taken 1 hour before meal or 2 hours after meal (Note: The 2 hours is something new). For some medication, 30 minutes before meal. To be on the safe side, 30 minutes before meal. So for medication to be taken before meal for 4 dosages per day, it should be taken at 5:30 a.m., 12 p.m., 5:30 p.m., and 11:30 p.m.

How about the 3 dosages per day? Why the third dosage need to be taken at 10 p.m.? For this schedule, the last dosage was scheduled at 10 p.m. because it's advisable to have a gap of 2 or 3 hours between meal and bedtime.

Again, consult your physician and don't simply read and trust any medical information found online.

Why this is the most strict feeding schedule for Betta sp.? Based on the baby betta care video of Big City Betta channel, we are surprised that the breeder (Amber) have such a strict feeding and water changes schedule (see screenshot below) for the first two weeks.


Compare to most breeders out there, her method in setting up the breeding environment is probably the most elaborate and humane. Typically you just get a container, add aged water and plants, condition the male and female pair, and release the female once the male have build a bubble nest.
