    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...
  2. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hi all! New to this forum, Just curious to see how other people would plant this set up. I kinda have a rough idea of what I want but maybe hearing other ideas would change my mind. Tank dimensions are 400x400x400mm My plan was to have a large amazon sword in the middle of the log...

  4. Lighting
    I've been looking for a low profile lighting solution for a 14g cube and could use some advice. Not planning to go co2 on this tank so I don't need high light. I really liked the look of the Fluval 3.0 nano, but losing settings on a power outage and the app requirement are major downsides...
  5. Tank Journals
    First ever journal in this hobby after having a number of tanks. I try my best to run a high tech setup and it will be fun to finally document a tank from start to finish. In this scape I'm using black lava rock, manzanita wood for hardscape, la plata sand and tropica soil for substrate...

    Hey everyone! I'm trying to find a decent sized (25-35 gallon) Cube/Column tank (or anything that will fit in a 25 in L x 20 in W area) online but for the life of me I can't find one. The only one I found was Aquarium Depot, only for them to shoot me an email saying that they wont ship it. I...
  7. Planted Nano Tanks
    Hey all! I just wanted to share with you my first planted tank. It is an 8x8x8 nano cube which holds about 1.5 gallons. I used a relatively large rock as my father stone because I wanted the scale of this tank to be dramatic. The foreground is DHG and the back is Lobelia Cardinalis. This tank...

    Hi friends, I've done nano tanks in the past, but am moving into creating my first "aquascape." I'm an artist and also work at a botanical garden during the day, so I'm hoping some of my horticultural and creative skills on land translate to underwater! :laugh2: I want to create something...

    SO... I couldn't help myself, and I bought one of those marina betta kits. Ive been running a planted scape in a 5 gal Solo tank for months now, and absolutely love it. I had intentions of putting something small in my bathroom, no fish, maybe some Shrimp, and this little tank seemed so nice...

    Hello, Looking to get back into the hobby and just picked up a 24 gallon cube off craigslist but I need a stand. This is a shot in the dark but does anyone have a stand they are looking to get rid of in our area? The stand would need to be at least 17" wide and 17" long... Thanks!!!

    I am starting my first planted aquarium, which is really my first aquarium ever. I am in the process of accumulating the supplies. Things are getting exciting as stuff arrives in the mail. Hopefully you guys can give me tips as I post stuff... let me know what I might be doing wrong. 24g tank...
  13. Tank Journals
    I decided to give my soon to be six year old a fish tank for her birthday. (Okay, I'll be honest this is kind of a gift to myself as well). This is only my second high tech planted tank, so I am still a rookie and bound to make mistakes -- what little I know about planted tanks I've learned by...

    Good day, I thought I would try to document the progress for this tank. I received the tank last week, but the filter, light, and substrate are not arriving till next week. For now, I have decided on some curly twigs (Harry Lauder's walking stick which is a type of hazelnut). This came from my...

  18. Fish
    Planning (nothing in stone yet) would love to hear suggestions/experiences etc with these fish, and ones compatible with them. I will be buying most of my stock from msjinkzd (exceptions being rams, and dwarf gourami, and shrimp if I find a better deal) 20 gallon long: (30x12x12) Filter...
