This will be in the view of most people while they are using the forum and would be a great feature to use. I think there should be some sorting options available, I think the best options would be to be able to sort them by amount of light needed to grow, and difficultly.

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 requirements....in this case you're better off googling the style or something
Please! This is a great idea from way back.

drhemlock2 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.

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.

TheKribKeeper 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.

@marko@ 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.

mrkevinpinto83 Hi I'm having an aquarium of 750 liter the co2 is connected to one ceramic diffuser at one side at 5 bps I feel that the co2 is still not enough in the tank
The ph is 6.5 when co2 is working,when off it goes to 7.3
Why is the ph not remaining stable

Davelybob 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.

bigd603 Would be nice if the plants were categorized into foreground, midground, background for us beginners who dont know the plant names yet.

Philia 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.

todderic 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.

Thanks.

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.

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