    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. Details: 200L Blue...
  2. General Planted Tank Discussion
    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...

    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...
  6. Low Tech Forum
    Overview: 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...

  8. Tank Journals
    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...
