    I've kept a fresh water tank for most of my life, but only switch to live plants a few years ago. I'm not trying to win any aquascaping awards, but I'd like to have a green, natural-looking tank. I have a 46 gallon bow front tank with a Fluval Aqua Fresh and Plant 2.0 46 watt LED light. For...

    Hey all! I am replacing my ancient 29 gallon tank with a 72 gallon bow front I scored for cheap. I had to reseal it since it had been dry (and still salty...) for years, so please ignore the heavy-handed silicone job, it was my first attempt ever. It's not pretty but it worked. Let it cure for...

    First I want to thanks everyone on TPT, and specially the mods and experts that hang out here. I would love to get some feedback on the tank I am putting together. I have been lurking around here for a couple of months, and it's finally time to start the tank journal. This is my first planted...

    After keeping discus for a year in my 29 gallon fish tank, I decided it was time to upgrade to my dream tank, a 72 gallon bow front! I really wanted to do the who planted tank thing right this time as to make it look like one of those beautiful aquascapes you see in youtube videos. I finally...
  7. Tank Journals
    I set off on the trail seldom travel. It will be long, no doubt bumpy, and hopefully fruitful. Many have tried; many have battle wounds they wear as badges of honor, of sleepless nights cleaning up tank catastrophes. Those who make it show off the fruits of their labors proudly. I'm going to...

    Hello all, I'll start by introducing myself. I'm completely new to planted tanks, but had been into reef tanks for about 5 years. I took my reef tank down about a year ago due to time and money constraints. I've decided to start a new tank, and the planted tanks have really caught my eye...I...
  12. Lighting
    Hey everyone. All I need is lighting (the most important) and I will be ready to start cycling my tank. I've been researching for hours on-line and haven't come to any conclusions yet. My tank will be low-light and will need to be in the 1.5-2.0 wpg range. I'll have a glass top so I'll probably...
