  1. Tank Journals
    Hi everybody! It's been quite a while, like 8 years! I'm finally getting back into my tank now that my kids are a little older and I have some helpers. This intro will be a little long, with progress from mainly the last 5 weeks of setting my goal and changing the tank nearly every week...
  2. The Lounge & Introductions
    Hi guys I'm new to this site but not entirely new to aquariums I've been keeping fish for the last 15 years. Usually low-tech low maintenance stuff - I started off with goldfish and fake plants haha. My last tank before I downsized and moved into a unit was a 3ft community tank with danios...
  3. Fish
    I have two siamese algae eaters in a ten gallon planted tank with one betta, two corie cats, four neon tetras, and one otto cat. About two months ago, one of my siamese started beating up on the other. Now the mean one is big and fat and bright, and the other (still getting beat up) is small...
  4. Lighting
    Hi, rather new to this. In my 10 g tank with CO2, and Marineland 18" LED plant light. My hemianthus HC and Pogostemons have Grown well,but recently there is a Yellowing area down the center of the tank, Looks rather burned out. Is it too much light, or insufficient nutrients? About 65 days on...
  5. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    Looking for suggestions on how I can raise the PH levels in my ten gallon, thank you for the help!
  6. Tank Journals
    Hi guys, this is my first tank journal, though not my last. I found this old metaframe for the obligatory $10 on Craigslist in my area along with a whole bunch of very old aquarium equipment (will post photos later). I think this particular one is from the early sixties and I really love the...
  7. Equipment
    I was wondering if the placement of the co2 diffuser was placed in the optimal place in my 10 gallon tank. 1. CO2 diffuser currently located at bottom front left of the tank. 2. Outtake flow goes from bottom back left corner of tank. 3. Intake flow comes from top back right corner of tank...
  8. General Planted Tank Discussion
    This summer, I wanted to take an old 10gal I have and make a planted tank for college. (We're allowed to have up to 20gal, but as a beginner, that sounds scary.) So, yeah. I don't know anything. :icon_redf At all. I'm currently reading the stickys but I wanted to know what you guys think would...
  9. General Planted Tank Discussion
    I used algaefix for my 10g a week or more ago and I used it once every three days as recommended for a good week and a half and now it's been a week since I used any in the tank, just replaced the carbon filter and I've been doing weekly 25%+30% water changes or more. is it safe to say that...
  10. Substrate
    So I've pretty much read every forum and article google will send me to regarding the walstad method and I've even read her book (Skipping over the heavy scientific parts) but there are still a few things I'm questioning before I go dirting a 10 gallon I'm planning. From what I've read, I've...
  11. Equipment
    Hi guys. My current HOB filter is starting to crap out so I'm thinking of getting my first canister filter. I have been doing a lot of research on my own but because I value this community's experience and knowledge I thought I'd try soliciting some advice here too. I have a 10 gal planted...
  12. Low Tech Forum
    Hello, I am planning on setting up a simple low tech 10gal planted tank. I have not had a freshwater tank for YEARS and got out of Reef keeping last year. I current have Darts Frogs and Snakes. My plans are to try to keep it simple with some low-moderate light plants. Equipment: 10gal tank...
  13. Riparium/Terrarium/Vivarium
    Too bad there is not a riparium sub-category on this forum... Anyways it is similar to a paludarium so I thought I'd post it here. This is my 10 gallon low tech riparium that I have set up at work. It uses only natural lighting from the big windows that I have there. 1080HD available...
