  1. Planted Nano Tanks
    Hi All! I am brand new to this world and I am feeling quite confused about a few things after hearing so many conflicting instructions on how to set the tank up and create a beautiful, healthy and happy home for it's new inhabitant/s. I bought a 5.5g tank from my local fish store and asked...

    Hey all, I've been thinking about picking up a 5.5 gallon to set up as a planted tank, but I haven't been able to decide what to put in it. I really love all the little species that fit in these nano tanks. I'd try to build the hardscape and plant stock around the fish stock. I've got a couple...

    Initial Setup 5/18/14 After a botched first attempt with a strange acrylic tank and pea gravel, I've finally managed to get a tank worth posting here. :p The water is still somewhat cloudy from the substrate, and I'm keeping the level a bit low until my glass canopy arrives in the mail. I'm...

    Heya folks! This is the current plan/shopping list I have developed in order to set up a 5.5 gallon (16.25" x 8.5" x 10.5") low-tech planted species tank, which, in the end, will hold 2-3 Dario dario for sure. Other fish are on my wish list, such as Hara Jerdoni, but those are not certain. It...

    Hi, I've got a 5.5 gallon planted tank with a betta in it, but it's only filled to two inches before the rim.

    I always kept bettas as a little kid, and my desire to have one was renewed just a few months ago when a friend of mine told me she got one. I never kept bettas properly before, since I never heard anything about their needing heating, or a filter, or more space than the half gallon betta...

    It's been a while since I've done a tank journal. Now seemed like a good time to start a new one, as I keep forgetting to take pictures of it's progress. Perhaps this will help. Basic stats: Standard 5.5 gal AGA tank 1 13 w ottlight Miracle Grow Organic Potting Soil capped with Eco Complete...

    Hi~ As some of you may already know, I am currently aquascaping my 5.5 gallon. Currently I have two extremely thin leaved swords that I do not know the name of. Other than that, there are no other flora in the tank. I was thinking of doing some sort of carpet, moss, perhaps? Anything would...
