  1. Plants
    Hey! So once again I’m coming to you all for some help! I picked up this plant about a month ago from a LFS and they said they didn’t know what it was. I decided to try to “save it” after it had turned brown in their aquarium. I’ve got several other plants that are thriving but the only growth...
  2. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    So I recently got 4 Blue Dream Cherry Shrimp on Thursday and lost 2 in the past 2 days. The only thing I can think of is I didn't acclimate the shrimp well enough as I did cycle my tank (a 7.5 gallon shrimp tank specifically from Aqueon) and have a piece of driftwood, a moss ball, and a long...
  3. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hey everyone, I've been wanting to start a planted 75 gal and I keep having problems with green water. I did the whole thing, 15-25% water changes every other day, less feedings, gravel vac. my ammonia is still at 0.25 (has been for a while no matter what I do) and my nitrates are at 5ppm, my...
  4. General Planted Tank Discussion
    I've been searching for weeks to identify these little white worms. I really dont think they are Detritus and they inch around to move so I don't think they are rhabodocoela. They almost literally "hang" out near the surface and often found in swarms around weaker plants. I really want my...
  5. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hey everyone, I have a 10 gallon planted tank with around 5-7 guppies, 2 males and the rest females. I recently got some RCS to add to the tank. On the first batch, I had a few die from around 9. Two weeks later, I bought some more, with a total of probably around 20. Now I can only find four...
  6. Tank Journals
    So, my grandmother has ended up enjoying the shrimp quite a bit, and we've decided to set up a 5 gallon in her room for the Neocaridina so they can be somewhere they can be watched and appreciated. The current plan is to keep it low-tech, and to dry start it for a few weeks before flooding. I'm...
  7. For Sale/Trade
    Local pick up only, located in WA state, zip 98012. I will be graduating soon and am currently looking at Master's programs abroad. I likely won't be able to set up any fish tanks in the near future and although I'd love to keep this tank and stand, it won't be working out and frankly, I...
  8. The Lounge & Introductions
    Hi guys, Recently I setup a new fresh water tank and it was my first planted tank. I thought it'd be great to show everyone the process from the beginning so I put together a video. So hope you enjoin it and please give some comment/advice if you could. Thanks.
  9. Tank Journals
    After a long absence on Planted Tank and a complete disassembly of all my tanks I decided Last October to take the big step of moving my tanks to the basement. With this move I was able to finally get my first 75g aquarium. My space allocated in the basement is 6x8' rectangle enough to...

    Yup, went and did it. The little bugger has such a personality that I figured I might as well share it with the world. He's a fiddler crab, and I thought he was a golden-claw, but the gold has worn off, so I'm not sure. I found out that my crab has to be at least "13 years old" for Google to...

    Today at the store, I bought this glass terrarium on the spur of the moment thinking I might try to figure out if I can use it as a fish bowl for a betta. Think it's doable and possible to use live plants? I've never something like this with low light plants, but thought I might give it a try...
  14. Tank Journals
    Hello, It has been quite a while since I last posted here. To give a little background on this build, I've always been really into dutch/plant-heavy planted tanks, with one of my favorite tanks being @Greggz's dutch-Esque 120-gallon beauty. Inspired by members of this forum such as Greggz, Burr...
  15. Equipment
    I've just started looking at 10G tanks to setup an aquarium again in my home and was wondering what tanks or kits people would recommend? I'm looking for something I can setup on my kitchen counter in the corner under the cabinets that's easy to maintain and I can grow easy, low-light plants in...

    Hi All, I've used this forum for a lot of my fish equipment suggestions in the past as a reader but after some back and forth regarding filtration systems and types I could use some advice. Me: A beginner hobbyist Tank: Aqueon 15 Gallon LED Column Tank + Stand Heater: Fluval E 100Watt...

    Hi guys! I currently just got back into the hobby after a 2 year hiatus. I ran into an issue with my T5HO dying on me during this time. I bought the Fluval Aquasky 18W and hung it up over my tank. I feel like this is still a bit on the low light spectrum. Looking to grow plants that will...

    Hi guys, i really need help because i cant find much information online. does anyone have any suggestions for what plants i can put in my cold water aquarium? I kind of want the cold water equivalent of baby tears carpet plant because i love the look of that plant and then also a few "center...
  19. Lighting
    Alright so long story short I didnt wear my glasses and ended up buying the wrong light (meant to get the one listed in the little low tech guide i was reading) and I ended up with an Aqua Masters LED (here). My question is: Which light mode do I use!? The box says it has two modes, but there...

    When I purchased my Bacopa Australis, they came with what looks like a flat 3/8 wide piece of stainless steel wrapped at one end. It was rather nice, as it weighted down the stem plants and allows them to grow upright in a tank that doesn't have enough substrate to allow them to root and take...
