    Hi everybody, this is my first post! I'm a beginner at this hobby, and while I have been doing tons of research and have been trying my best not to just rush in recklessly, I'm sure I don't have to tell any of you how difficult it is to find a clear answer about just about anything regarding the...

    Hi, I've been lurking around the forums for a bit doing research and finding inspiration. The community looks great so I decided to join in! I guess you could say I got bit by the aquascaping bug (or is it fish?) this year by watching a lot of youtube videos. Anyone else enamored with Serpa...

    Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum and excited to be here! I wanted to share my new tank setup so far.

    Hey Everyone. First time poster here. I recently moved a Betta and (2) Cherry Shrimp into a 3.5 gallon tank and now have an open, decently planted 10 gallon tank. I was looking at adding a (3-4) Sparkling Gouramis and (1) Honey Gourami into the 10 gallon. I've read conflicting forums regarding...

    Hello guys it's been awhile, I want to start up a 10 gallon tank with co2 + EI ferts which I'm already familiar with from the last time I had a planted aquarium.

    So i have a 10 gal tank that is only holding a clown pleco. I've had this pleco for over a year, he was given to me when i had an algae issue in my solo betta tank. While looking around to see if he was ok with plants I found out he's not the best fish for a 10 gallon despite what i was told...

    When I was first starting out, I was pretty clueless on lighting. I went to this local store and got this light and I don't think it's nearly enough for what I'm going for The lighting is pretty... vague. I planted some Amazon Swords and some S-Repens now. I am currently a college student and...

    Total noob here. I've been reading a whole lot but at some point all the information begins to confuse instead of enlighten. I think I may be better off just stating my desires and having the more experienced point me in the right direction and I can hopefully avoid some costly mistakes. I am...

    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...
