    Hello! I'm Sam, fresh to the planted tank game. I've spent the last month or so doing a bunch of research, and I just started buying for my first high-tech tank. My plan is to go slowly through the tank build process, so I'm not sure yet what I'll be filling my tank with for livestock and...

    I bought a red tiger lotus 2-3 months ago and it ended up breaking into 3 parts when I tried to plant it into my substrate. All 3 parts ended up growing, but they aren't growing tall (no leaves reaching to the top of the tank). I was wondering under what conditions should I have my tank light...
  4. Fish
    the tank I plan on putting them in has lots of plants, 3 nerites and an amano shrimp. Ideally the fish would be perfectly docile with these guys. I should note that maybe around 1.5 to 2 gallons of the tank is gravel/hardscape. currently my tank is heated at around 80F, and has plants that...

  6. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    So my friends know I love shrimp (I have a happy little colony of ghost shrimp) and were trying to be sweet and got me 2 bamboo shrimp in a 10 gallon for my 21st birthday (I have no prior experience or nearly enough research to be ready for them but even I know that's way too small) along with a...
  7. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I'm still cycling it right now, but I'm extremely worried that it's going to be too small. The absolute last thing I want to do is abuse some poor little shrimps. And I really hope I don't get hate for this, I have anixety and just have been freaking out pretty badly for like 3 hours. This is my...

  9. Plants
    I am new to planted tanks and am trying to plant a 10 gallon shrimp tank and a 20 gallon fish tank. For the shrimp tank, ideally I would like to have thicker plant coverage on the sides and only a little in the middle, and a floating plant and ground cover. For the fish tank I was hoping for...

I am hoping to house 8 blue velvet shrimp and 5 amano shrimp in...

    Hi I'm extremely new, and I am getting a small tank soon that I would like to put some live plants in. I've looked around this forum, and I've seen many amazing tanks that are full of live plants. I don't plan for mine to look close to the ones I've seen on here, but I need some advice on ways...

    Hi, my African Water Fern is turning into a translucent brown colour days after dosing Iron into the tank. I've read several articles saying that high iron content will turn the fern brown. I've also included a number pictures of the fern. I'm not sure if this is concerning and if there's...
