emersed growth

  1. Aquascaping
    Hi there, I've been doing some research on this forum but haven't really found what I wanted. I'm rescaping my tank (ADA 90p) and this time I'm going for a big slope on the right with a big piece of driftwood that's gonna be partly poking out of the water. I would like to put plants on that part...
  2. Planted Nano Tanks
    Bare with me as I'm new to the forum! I recently set up a 5 gallon shallow pond style scape for my betta. This is my first go-round with emersed growth and while I've had a bit of success, I'm learning some things through trial and error. First off, I have plants that are taller than the top of...
  3. For Sale/Trade
    NOTE: Sold out. Hi! I bought a healthy 6" x 10" emersed tray from a local hobbyist for $60, and I only used 1" x 10" of it as I've changed my mind a little with my setup. As this is a quick sale, almost like a RAOK, I will not post a picture but these are green and densely grown. I have (2)...

    Hi there! tl;dr: Does anyone have any suggestions or could point me in a direction to research set ups for display emersed terrariums that grow aquatic plants? Possibly mixed with non aquatic plants? ----- I am currently in the middle of dry starting my 9 gallon fluval flex and am already...

    Hello folks, It has been around 8 months since I have dismantled my tank. Now that I have a bigger apartment, I can keep some more tanks. So recently I came up with the idea of making an emersed setup. Pros about emersed setup: No water changes. Yay.. no strings attached No filtration and...

    I wanted to start growing moss and glosso and micro swords for my tanks, to sell and for some raoks in the future, but I'm kinda at a loss. What type of soil should I use? Just any organic topsoil? And what about ferts? I live in California, so I'm going to be doing it outside in a little...
  10. Plants
    I've started an emersed set up with my bacopa australis and riccia. Each plant is in a small pot that is sitting in water. The dirt is saturated and I've covered the entire thing with saran wrap for the time being. I'm expecting more plants this week, so I've set up a few large jars with wet...
  11. Tank Journals
    Well, I decided I couldn't wait to purchase a new tank, so I grabbed the old hex out of the garage, dusted it off and got started on a mini project to pass the time. When I do set up my 6 gallon long tank (or 12 :)) I'm going to want to do an emersed start, so I figured this would be a good...
  12. Aquascaping
    Hello! This tank has been setup about 6 weeks ago. The filter is from a previous tank so its cycled already. The root wood sticks out about and inch above the water level. I have anubias nana growing out of the top which will look nice when the plants take off. Problem is the exposed wood is...
  13. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hi, everyone I'm trying to set up a carpet of HC in a new 10 gallon, and wanted to try the emerged growth method. The only problem is, I (rather stupidly) ordered a bunch of red cherry shrimp already which should be arriving sometime next week. Would it be possible to compromise by having a...
