  1. Aquascaping
    I almost ended up selling this tank but decided to give it another chance. I ended up with this, what do you guys think? Not sure if i should just fill it in with HC or DHG "Belem"
  2. Substrate
    Ive only used flourite before, but I need something I can aquascape better so I'm deciding between ADA Amazonia, Eco complete and this Red Sea substrate. Also has anyone used the API laterite, how well does it work, would it be worth it.

    So she finally arrived, not without issue but the less said about that here the better. The tank is amazing, really really good silicone work, immaculate really. Here's my first scape, nothing too special, just seeing what works where. I've already learnt that Mazatania is very brittle...

  9. General Planted Tank Discussion
    So, I just completed the planting of my 10 gallon tank for my bedroom, anyone have suggestions on how to make sure the baby tears get rooted correctly as a carpet plant let me know! The previous setup crashed due to algea pretty quickly, I think due to not having enough plants in there from the...

  12. Planted Nano Tanks
    Well no major changes, just waiting and hoping that the hc will stay rooted and hopefully start spreading. Currently I have not started the weekly flourish supplement. For now i think the eco-complete should be good enough as far as nutrients, and i wont have to worry about algae. Im going to...
  13. Equipment
    Hi, I am setting up an ADA tank and have the Solar II with the arm stand attached to a garden stand. Your supposed to just hang the light onto the stand but I untied my cables and don't know how to tie them back into a loop. I'm guessing it would be very similar to hang any other pendant style...

  15. Planted Nano Tanks
    I made the unfortunate mistake of dropping in on AFA one day while walking along Fillmore in SF. A couple hundred bucks and countless hours of prune-y hands later, behold ... The Blue Steel (if you take this hobby too seriously you'll go crazy). Substrate: Amazonia II base with a layer of...

  19. Substrate
    I'm planning on setting up a 29 gallon planted tank. I have about 25 lbs. of a clay-like substrate. Looks similar to fluorite but is gray. I bought it in bulk from a LFS, said it was good for planted. I recently stumbled upon some ADA Amazonia substrate. I'd like to use the ADA aw well. My...
