    Hi all, I am a vivarium-ist who decided to try my hand at fish and planted tanks. Thought I would post some pics of my first hardscape. It's an 11.4 gallon tank with ADA Amazonia, and I plan to plant it fairly heavily with carpeting plants up front, a lot of epiphytes on the driftwood and stems...

    I recently found an exquisite piece of drift wood off a Texas coast and was wondering if anyone has experience with using found drift wood for a set up? I've successfully used found hardwood from a forest (after curing it) for use in a tank before, but never something found sea side. Any one...

    Hope this is right place. I've got a good deal on a 135 gallon tank that I'm thinking about picking up and I want to get big drift wood for it. I've sourced my own wood for smaller tanks and boil it to clean, but those have all been small scale. I want to pick up something gnarly, thick, and...

    Hi, I was wondering if the rhizomes of anubias and java ferns need to be in the light or do they just need to be in open water.

    I have drift in both my tanks and I'd recomend soaking the drift wood for at least a month. The colour of the water is terrible if you just buy it and put it in. Especially dark wood like mopani. I use a prefilter sponge on my filter intake and it collects alot of the colour I have to clean it...

    I have bought lots of little and larger peaces of drift wood and have noticed mainly one thing. There is dark wood, light coloured wood and combo light and dark. I find it is best to get the dark coloured drift wood as the light has more of a chance of having fungus or hair algae. Here is a...
  10. Fish
    Hi all, I've been having a lot of trouble with this new 10g tank of mine; in spite of 1)seeding the tank with filter/rocks from an established tank, 2)low nitrites/ammonia, 3)stable temperature, 4)shrimps surviving at least a week or two, fish keep dying. I've tried WCMs, long finned zebra...
