    I recently set up a 20 gal tank with substrate and a few plants attached to driftwood. It’s been about 2-3 weeks now and I just noticed snails in my tank!! I’m still working on cycling so the conditions aren’t perfect (no fish yet, just plants/driftwood/water/and now snails). I’m not sure what...

    What methods are there to remove tannins from wood other then boiling it? my wood is too big to be chucked in a pot of boiling water, so instead have it in a bucket and have been filling it with boiling water from the stove. I’ve been doing this for a month now and it’s a time consuming process...

    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...

    Over a week ago, I bought a piece of driftwood specifically for use in my planted tank that I am yet to build. I can't boil it, because I don't have a pot that's big enough because this piece of driftwood is almost 20 inches long. So, I was told to soak it in a bucket for a few weeks to make...

    Hi folks! I managed to snag a 65 gallon tank from Petsmart for 48% off and am looking for a couple things to put in it. Today I bought this awesome piece of driftwood from manzanita.com and am starting to consider the kinds of plants I can attach to it or surround it with. The dimensions of the...

    Hi Everyone, Brand new aquarium owner here. Got a great deal on a 30 gallon stocked (Overstocked..I'm getting rid of several fish tomorrow) tank with 2 types of plants completely covered in black algae. It's super dirty and I'm planning on starting all over tomorrow. Anyways, wanting to do...

    I have this sort of white stuff that has started to spread on my vallisneria and on my driftwood. I have not seen this before in my years in the hobby and i can't find answers anywhere so hopefully someone can help identify it. It spreads on the vals and eventually the leaves seem to die. I am...

    First time doing a Forest Scape style tank, and thought I should get some feedback before filling. Any suggestions are welcome! I plan on stocking this with some Coral Moss, fissidens moss, hygrophila pinnatifida, Anubias nano petite, buce, and some crenata.
  10. Aquascaping
    Hello all! I am new to the forum and would like some constructive criticism on how I should scape my 55 gallon (48x12x21). I have two ideas so far but it just seems like I'm not happy with either. My initial idea was to have two branches pieces of driftwood which you will see drawn in red, with...

    My husband purchased this piece of driftwood originally intending it for his 125g (still cycling). I suggested he start soaking the wood so that by the time he was ready for it in his tank it would hopefully sink. He couldn't find a bucket large enough so he stuck it into my 29g livebearer...

    Hello everyone, I am wondering if there is anyone around here who knows places in North California, specifically 100 miles radius around Sacramento, where I could collect driftwood for my aquarium without breaking the law. I hope someone can pin point me to some good locations. I don't mind...

    My driftwood has developed these white spots over the last few weeks. It starts as a white sheen on the wood and then the spots get more distinct. It rubs off, but returns. It's not on plants, glass or rocks. My tank is 600l with twice weekly 10% water change. It's been up about 6 months...

    I have this tiny mushroom growing on some emersed driftwood. Couldn't seem to find the type. Any help is appreciated!
  15. Tank Journals
    Hello again everyone, Some of you may recall my recent shallow 80 gallon aquarium journal I had on here and UKAPS, under "Green Shallows." As with many interests, hobbies come and go- and while planted aquariums certainly aren't gone for me, I felt the desire to downsize my commitment to the...

    Hi guys. This is my first tank in quite a few years. I have a 29 gallon tank that I have filled with the following. 20 pound eco complete bottom layer covered with sand and small pebbles which are mostly pea-sized. There are also several fist size rocks. These are rocks from Lake Ontario so...
