    Hello everyone, hope yall safe and healthy! I am new to this forum but been a hobbyist for years. I'm designing an aquarium for my sis and her kids since they're sick of their 40$ 2gallon Walmart tank. I have an ADA 60p 17 gallon 24x12" tank set up. Thanks for your time and votes! Here's...

    Hey everyone, I recently got my hands on a cheap Kmart aquarium starter kit ($29 AUD = ~$22). It is a 5 gallon semi-rimless glass tank (rimmed on the bottom but not the top) and the kit comes with an internal filter, plastic lid, background wallpaper, fake gravel and plants. From what I could...

    Finally upgraded from the 25g cube, and let me tell you it's not very easy to find a 30-40g cube around here. Managed to find a beautiful 20x20x20 aquarium and some amazing driftwood at a local shop and we're off to the races. Nothing equipment wise has actually changed, still running: AI...

  5. Plants
    Sorry first time posting here, so I apologize if I used the wrong area for this question. I'm planning my first "real" aquascape with co2 and a real filter, so I'm trying to do it right instead of buying random plants and just planting. I noticed that a lot of people often mixed up their plants...
  6. Aquascaping
    Hey just looking for some thoughts on what I should with this corner of my aquascape. I'm finding that leaves at the bottom of the stem plants in this corner keep dying off and I think it is because as they grow taller less light gets to the bottom. Plus shading from the hardscape and other...

  8. Low Tech Forum
    I'm going to be setting up a 5 gallon aquarium for my grandmother soon, and I'm wanting to stick to something relatively low-tech. I was thinking about maybe a moss and crypt-only aquarium? Or some other type of hardy, easy plant that has a lot of varieties but keeps a pretty similar look...

  11. Tank Journals
    Hello all, I'm in the middle of cycling my new 15 gallon tank and had a few questions so I figured I might as well try and turn it into a tank journal. This will be my 2nd aquascaped tank as I have a 10 gallon waterbox cube that I've posted about before. I also have a small ~7 gallon aqua one...

    I have a couple weeks before my 50g and stand arrives so I am soaking wood and preparing some Seiryu rock for aquascape. There are a lot of images of acid washed Seiryu rock that are attractive. The acid appears to darken the stone and increase the contrast with the white veins, my guess is by...

  15. Tank Journals
    Hello, I've been a longtime member, but haven't really posted much recently. I figured I would start again with this new aquascape. I've made several attempts at scapes for the past 5 years, but really haven't settled on one until now. Before I bought this UNS 60U tank in January, I had a...

    hello fish people, I'm recently working on this 20g high aquarium. Id love to see what you guys think! Id also like to know if the Glosso on the bottom is growing too high or if that's normal. I'm using a relatively cheap LED from Aquarium Masters, bought it for $84 CAD. Also, does Glosso take...
  19. Planted Nano Tanks
    I'm back in the hobby after a long hiatus. I decided to make my office less glum 5 months ago so I setup this CO2 infused planted tank when I moved into it. It's almost fully grown in now so you guys can see the fruits of my labor. It's very low maintenance. I'm doing 20% water change every 2...
