1. Never seen a filter like that. Seems to be under gravel and on top. Hopefully someone will help. Otherwise you could buy an air pump and sponge filter.

  2. That is correct, it sucks from under the gravel and there's also a skimmer on top. I wonder if it's due to the gravel/aquasoil mix getting compacted over time thus making the suction difficult?

  3. Ngl that filter looks like crap. And the noise is from air inside the filter, either because it got trapped in there or because the filter or the impaler is clogged. So you need to clean the inside of the filter, including the pump and the impaler, then put it back and make sure to fill it with water before you turn it on again. Hopefully this will fix the issue.

  4. thanks! i'll give it a shot. and yes it is indeed a crap filter

  5. Hygrophila 'rosanervig' this one is aquatic plant. Looks similar to fittonia (nerve plant) often sold as aquatic but fittonia will rot under water.


  7. moving plants inside and outside will cause stress or shock. Plants, above all, need consistency in environment to be healthy. Orchids will like more sunlight in my experience, they love to be right in a window. Watering so frequently is definitely going to hurt the plant, there is no reason to water every three days or even every week. If parts of the plant are browning and falling off it is likely due to overwatering.

  8. Thanks for replying, I think we’ll move them outside to get a bit more light as the room it’s in doesn’t get much. We live in northern Thailand so the outdoor conditions should be ok, just really liked having it in the living room…. Thanks again

  9. Flowers don’t last forever, the plant will spend more time as just leaves without flowers than it will in bloom, especially if you’re not fertilizing.

  10. Thanks very much for your advice! I’ll check that link out

  11. This is what you're about to eat

  12. Awesome! Thanks for the quick reply, yes i figured it was a monitor of some sort. Thankfully they don't seem to be endangered...

  13. Sorry, I'm not sure if it posted the text I had written explaining stuff...I inherited this cultivar of peace lily last week, it came like this with yellow leaves and holes and brown edges, etc. I repotted it in some garden soil with shredded coconut husk, it's in a mostly shady spot on the porch which gets some morning light, watering it everyday. Any advice or recommendations would be appreciated, thanks

  14. Thanks, I might pick some up the next time i'm at my local drugstore/pharmacy!

  15. It could very well be a lack of calcium. General hardness and proper pH is also really important. And I hate to be that person but 3 gallons is really too small for a mystery snail. The general recommendation is 5 gallons per snail because they have a very high bioload meaning your water will become high in ammonia, nitrate, and nitrite very quickly. In that size bowl you’d have to do water changes nearly daily to keep the water at safe levels.

  16. Thanks, you've been helpful already. I'm just worried that in such a small container, if I'm putting in all this additional calcium it'll screw with the water parameters. Plus there's the elephant skin stone I used for the scape, which is said to leech calcium into the water. Anyway, I added a cuttlefish bone in there and guess Ill keep a close eye over the next couple of days.

  17. You probably can't say anything very specific about that. Something in the data it was trained on makes it evaluate the version without กำเนิด as more likely when the sentence for translation has "British" than when it has "French" or "Japanese". Maybe the corpus wouldn't have been that way if British had been the name of a language, but there's no way to run that experiment. For me the "of x origin" construction is more natural when you are talking about loanwords than, say, clothing or architecture, so that does fit, but then it might just be an individual preference.

  18. Thanks for your response, you are correct that the translation changes when running it through multiple times - but, only if the nationality is changed from one to another, i.e. translating the same nationality/sentence over and over obviously gets the same result but going from 'french' to 'japanese' and back again will give different results. Substituting 'english' and it automatically adds 'ภาษา' into the mix. It's odd/stupid.

  19. I've found in the past that the same sentence - I mean word for word the same - will translate differently on different days. It might depend on the sentence though.

  20. Wow, thank you so much for taking the time to write that all out, and I also really appreciate you sharing your knowledge with me. I learned a lot! Thanks again

  21. did you just chomp into that pepper like an apple? that's pretty baller..

  22. Oh you mean flats? They are superior. I’m from buffalo ny and I’ll die on this hill.

  23. Is that even in question?? more crispy skin, the meat comes right off the bone, no weird ligaments to deal with...pussy wings are 100% superior

  24. Omg I get it now, when you eat them you’re left with a vagina oval, and when you eat the other part you’re left with a pp bone

  25. BUTT WAX!! How is that evolutionarily beneficial, it seems so cumbersome and conspicuous??

  26. I asked one of the Thai teachers at my school. She says the same, it comes from the older Thai หมาก/mak used for hard fruits, with the older หมา/ma sound changing to มะ/ma over time and then being applied to softer fruits without a pit.

  27. Thanks very much for your reply! The link you provided defines 'ma' as a 'central thai prefix for many fruits and vegetables'. I guess I'm asking if anyone has information on why this prefix is so prevalent or the history of it, i.e. is it a Khmer, Pali, etc root, etc. The prefix also seems to apply to a diverse range of fruits and plants, regardless of hardness, pits, etc. In any case, I appreciate your help!

  28. Its more likely to be from southern China than it is from Khmer, Pali, Sanskrit, Tamil etc. Those languages don't have the ma sound for fruits but they do have the "am" sounds at the end of the fruit, I doubt that's related and probably a coincidence.

  29. Huh that's an interesting coincidence, thanks for sharing!

  30. Beautiful work! Are these Thai letters? I keep trying to read the drawing as text but can't make out the characters!

  32. Flew out of BKK last month and it was also the quickest pre-flight experience of my life. I've never seen Suvarnabhumi so empty before. Waiting in line to check my baggage with the airline took the longest, security was a breeze. Going out, they don't really seem to care as much as when you're coming in. JacksBlackShadow is also right about most airport stores being closed, except for S&P cafe and I think Subway was opening up, but the very bottom floor has a food court where local Thai dishes like chicken rice/noodles are available 24/7.

  33. No. Porcelain Berries. No eating. Also highly invasive but we will never get rid of them. Similar to the invasive Eliagnus varieties. (You can eat those)

  34. Thanks! The leaves looked similar to grape leaves to me. Very beautiful fruit, glad to know it's toxic!
