Hoppy I didn't notice this until after I posted something to the Riparium group. If nothing else we can make a public formatted google doc spreadsheet to start keeping track.

What I wish we had was something with the functionality and availability of this: but for Riparium plants only. I certainly don't have the skills to set something like that up. It would really be a boon for the many folks starting ripariums.

A suggestion: in the navigation panel on the left make MORE SORTING OPTIONS. Personally I'd like something along the following lines:

high light
low light
medium light

The database is very good if you have a specific plant in mind, but if you're looking to say stock your tank or are looking for a style of plant, basically your only option is to scroll through 175 plant profiles and read thru each comment to find out how big it gets/light this case you're better off googling the style or something

We are looking into potentially updating this database. Thanks for the ideas.

There are some great suggestions here to help improve this database. I love the concept behind it though!!! What a great way to learn about different plants from the personal experiences of others out there.

Fyi, i just add a profile for a Scarlet Temple.

Dear Kyle,

It is an amazing service. I like it. It will be fun, I am sure. I am a new member here. I have looked over the forum. This is really a helpful forum. By the way there has some topics without plant. I think they should be placed in another category.

Hi -- I love the database. Thank you!

I have a feature suggestion: would it be possible to create a "Favorite" function like what the "your tanks" section has? Or some other way for us to save or bookmark certain plants? I find myself seeing a plant I hadn't thought of and wanting to remember it, but the best way I can find to do so is to bookmark it in my internet browser, and I'm really bad at organizing those and finding things again.

Would be nice if the plants were categorized into foreground, midground, background for us beginners who dont know the plant names yet.

I've been adding my riparium plants to my tank in the tank tracker, will these then show up in the plant database? Think a separate riparium plant section would be good, in plant profiles and in the tank tracker.

CO2 lowers pH.
CO2 + H2O <=> H2CO3 (carbonic acid) <=> H+ (proton) + HCO3- (bicarbonate ion)

your CO2 goes off, CO2 outgases, carbonic acid (which exists in equilibrium) converts to CO2, and outgases as well.
pH is not a good indicator of CO2 though. the pH and kh together tell you a decent amount in the absence of phosphates, but you have phosphate in your tank (i hope). you just have to figure out by the plants and animals whether you should have more, less, or are at the right amount.

Can you create a plant database category for tapatalk? It does not show up when using that app. At least I have yet to find it.

Link Plant Database with Tank Tracker?

The plant database is great, it woudl awesome if you could link it with the tank tracker. I've been looking for something to keep track of my plants with a link to obtain technical details.

I could not see a subscription like other posts so we can be notified when something new is added plus the ability to just click to go to it.
