    Hello all, I'm in the middle of cycling my new 15 gallon tank and had a few questions so I figured I might as well try and turn it into a tank journal.

    Hey everyone. A few months back I started a little 15 gallon planted tank and since then I've put in a few things and I'm not sure if its a good idea to put much more in there. I've consulted a couple online stocking calculators and have gotten mixed results, so what would you say? Too much or...
  5. Planted Nano Tanks
    It's a 15 gallon, I filled it with water and few rasboras in it. Should I first empty the tank and put the substrate? I've seen on youtube people putting the substrate in a bucket, fill it with water until it clears out from the cloudy mud of the substrate, how am I gonna deal with this in my...

I was thinking of doing a nice tall DW piece in the center with maybe Java ferns and moss surrounded by...
