Hey all, thought I’d finally start my own journal!
My main tank has gone through 9 years worth of changes. From various low tech layouts, to high tech algae farm, to an attempt at high tech scaping, to now: a big rescape in a nature style with (hopefully) Dutch inspiration.
Looking for a suggest for a low profile aquarium filter for a 10 gallon dutch style aquascape. I'd like it concealed for aesthetics, but also to not have a pipe and disrupting the back wall of plants or a shelf that blocks some of the light from reaching the plants.
I know most people go with...
Hey all, happy to be back in this hobby!
With everything being so hectic, I needed something that will be a relaxing presence in my life.
I will keep this journal up to date full of new posts/pictures documenting my journey.
Feel free to extend any advice or questions you have. Please Enjoy...
Hello, It has been quite a while since I last posted here. To give a little background on this build, I've always been really into dutch/plant-heavy planted tanks, with one of my favorite tanks being @Greggz's dutch-Esque 120-gallon beauty. Inspired by members of this forum such as Greggz, Burr...
I'm struggling with these swords in my tiny tank. Absolutely no idea why I bought such a large plant for such a small tank. It was in the early days of the tank and I had basically no knowledge or experience. I can't get them to grow properly; they have always had some kind of deficiency which...
The purpose of this build is to attempt to recreate some of the amazing Dutch tanks I've seen such as Burr's fantastic 120 gal. The twist? I am attempting to achieve similar results in a low tech environment, meaning no Co2 (within reason, I understand I won't be able to grow certain...
Bart just wrote a new article explaining in detail the finer points of Dutch Style aquascaping. Complete with lots of pictures and breakdowns of various tanks.
Great stuff for anyone interested in having a Dutch tank

This is a journal for my first ever planted tank. I've been keeping fish for about 10 years but I've been itching to try a "high tech" tank.
Disclaimer: I'm doing this mostly to track my own progress, keep myself accountable for updates, and to get feedback from the community. I'm probably...
(I had recently started up a 75 gallon journal here but it was abandoned shortly after due to purchasing a house and moving.)
New 50 gallon Acrylic Planted... I've always been too long-winded in my journal attempts, and lost interest after a few posts, so I'm going to keep this one short and...
Hows it going everyone. Just thought I'd take a moment to post my latest rendition of my 60P. Not real sure what I was trying to accomplish but it's more of a dutch-ish vibe I think.
It's been up and running since 12/24/14 although I have added substantially more flora since then. I've got a...

So everyone...I've been lurking on this site since Febraury, a month after I got into aquariums in general. Started with bettas, and six months and seven tanks later, they're still my main focus :P
I moved into the master bedroom of the apartment recently, which allowed me the space to get a...

Hi fellow TPT members!
After a lot of tank journal "lurking", I have decided to finally start my own. What follows is my story up to this point (November 30th, 2012). Subsequent posts will track the progress of my current tank - what is referenced in the title to this thread.
