  1. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    Hello folks, I was hoping for some advice on my water. It's hard as a brick and I want to lower the PH, but not totally sure how. I have been trying to read here and online and there is just so much information. So my water after it sits out or in the tank levels off around 8-8.2 PH. It's...

    Hello Everyone! This is my first post here and my first ever planted tank! I'm enjoying the process of learning and understanding the world of planted tanks. I just planted this tank a little over a week ago, but I do have new growth on all the plants already (which is very exciting)...
  3. Substrate
    Howdy! I currently have a 10 gallon planted tank (amazon swords and water wisteria) with one male betta, around 8 or so ghost shrimp, one trapdoor snail, and an indeterminate amount of ramshorns. The tank is fully cycled, with a 25% water change done weekly/frequent stirring up of the substrate...
  4. Lighting
    Hi Fishkeepers! I've been running a 10 gallon planted tank for a few months now, and it's really been doing pretty well. But one problem I've been having is some algae. I've been lighting the tank from behind with a ~10 watt cfl bulb in a small desk lamp, and on the side with the most light I...

    Hi, currently working on a 10 gallon planted tank, which I think is coming along nicely. Right now it has some guppy fry and 2 zebra nerite snails, but the fry will be getting a new home soon. I'm planning on getting 3 sparkling/pygmy gouramis from my LFS that I've had my eye on. Any ideas for...

    Hi, new to the forum and relatively new to the hobby. I've been working on a 10 gallon tank for about 2 months now, working through the process of cycling and deciding on stock.

    Hi All, I was considering upgrading the lighting on my planted 10 gallon tank to help with plant growth, and was wondering if I would see much benefit in going from a single 18-inch fluorescent tube (which I currently have) to either the Finnex Stingray...

    I have an empty 10 gallon tank and I want to make it a high tech planted tank. My plan is to use Miracle Gro Organic Choice Potting mix and clay, with a black diamond blasting sand cap. Anyone have any experience with black diamond as a cap? I'm thinking it should be fine, just not sure how much...

    Thinking of starting a 10 gal planted tank with nano fish (such as CPD's, microrasbora, emerald dwarf rasbora, pygmy cory's, pygmy hatchetfish, etc.).... essentially picking three species. My question is, as these fish have little to no bioload, whats the stocking rules here? It'd be set up as...

    Hey guys, I was having a bad algae problem in my 10 gallon (blue green and diatoms). The tank is only 26 days old and I have been algae free for only the last 5 days. I tried adjusting one thing at a time to find what was causing it: more co2, higher fertz, less light, etc. I think I may...

  17. Planted Nano Tanks
    I decided to start a new tank that I can bring to work and have at my desk. I've been talking about bringing in fish for a while and my co-workers that sit near me liked the idea, so I decided to go ahead and do it... I was going to a few months ago, but when I changed my 55 gal tank substrate...

    Dear planted-tankers, I recently got my hands on a few Crayfish, Rock fish and a Belostomatide. I got some floating plants which I cannot keep rooted with the Crayfish always ripping it up. I have a cheapo led light running when the tank is in shade and there is a sponge filter running...
