  1. Substrate
    I had gotten the Aqueon Shrimp 7.5 gallon tank kit and it came with the Aqueon Plant & Shrimp Aquarium Substrate. So far I like it, but I was wondering what everyone's opinion on it is. Is it actually good for plants? is it good for all types of freshwater shrimp? is it safe for Corydoras since...
  2. Planted Nano Tanks
    I'm a newbie, and looking to set up a nano planted tank with the long-term goal of keeping cherry shrimp. I'm planning to keep low-light easy to care for plants with an organic miracle-gro substrate. Question is, would one of these tanks be better than another? I'm considering: Imagitarium...

    I bought this at the infamous petco $1 a gallon sale. Inspected as best I could for scratches cracks etc. but did not think to check for something that seems so off to me it would be ridiculous to even have to check for. The tank panes are not even. At the top of the tank on one side the pane is...

    Hello! I am new to live plants (I hadn't added them in my tank yet) and sand when it comes to aquariums.

    Hi everyone, I'm setting up my first aquarium. It's a 10-gallon tank which is currently still in its first week of fishless cycling. There are nine species of aquatic plant on a mineral-rich aquarium soil substrate. No fauna yet as I'm still waiting for the nitrogen cycle to get established...

    Hello! I was if this little guy will be able to sustain a 10 gallon aquarium? It has only 57 GPH and that's what wavers my decision. Aqueon Internal Filter Planted Tank Current filter: 1 Aquaclear 50 (but it is too powerful and too loud) Stocking: 5 Rummynose 4 Cherry Shrimp...

  9. Plants
    I purchased two pots of Giant Hairgrass for my 29 gallon aquarium about a month ago. The store I got them from assured me that they were low-light plants and would grow fine for me and I trusted him even though I had read on this forum that they were medium light plants. I wanted something...

    I got the Aqueon Dual Lamp Fixture today and I can't figure out how to get it on the Versa-Top that it recommended to get. Can anyone shed some light on the situation? Any help would be appreciated thanks.

    Hello all, I'm getting a new 90G tank very shortly and wanted to see if there's a consensus on Aqueon vs. Perfecto tanks, stands, and canopies. Also interested in thoughts on using a Perfecto stand with an Aqueon tank. My questions: - In terms of tank durability (not leaking) is there a...

    Hello! I recently joined this forum after researching for my own first planted tank and picked up the aqueon evolve 8 due to a budget limitation.

    I ordered an Evolve 8 as a slightly belated christmas present to myself. It arrived today, and was promptly set up. Thus far, I've left everything stock, with the intention of running it the way it was intended, before I go about playing with it for my uses. I always INTEND to take pictures of...
