  2. Plants
    Hey all, I've been playing around with some plants, and I believe I have come to the conclusion that I am not happy with the hairgrass in the bottom right side of the tank. Here's what it looks like after I yanked a bunch of stuff and substrate out, but this is the general area. It gets...

    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...
  5. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Just set up this 22 gallon two weeks ago. I got all tissue culture plants except for two, and of course, this morning I saw a (smallish) pond snail (maybe bladder snail) on the glass.

    Is it a problem to have a sand substrate be just and inch or two from a canister filter’s intake tube? I am getting ready to add pool filter sand substrate to a new tank, and in planning for that I realized that with my planned layout the sand will be elevated near the intake. Do I need to...
  8. Aquascaping
    Hi! I'm currently playing around with arranging rocks to scape this 29g tank and would love some feedback. I'm also going back and forth on whether I want to add height with wood or if I want to leave it as is and achieve height with just plants. I'm planning on planting Cryptocoryne crispatula...

    What would you do with this scape? I would love plant suggestions! I was going for tangly driftwood, slightly disorganized on purpose.

    Hello, this is my first aquascape, and I would appreciate your feedback. Something seems off, so I've included a couple ideas. However, feel free to deviate from my points. Top half seems too empty More soil to raise the rocks? Add more rocks? The wood on the right side seems off Too much...

    When I first started out I had only heard and seen pictures of amazing aquariums and aquascapes. I took home a 60p with just 3 big rocks, some fine gravel and a few java ferns expecting to make a great design like on the pictures. Obviously it didn't take long before I figured out that I was...
