    I've got a 20 gallon and I'm going to make it high tech (this is my first time). I want to dry start some Monte Carlo, S. Repens, and Hygrophila Pinnatifida (amount in that order), but I'm also worried about algae popping up, so I'm torn on whether to dry start or cycle first. Can they be done...

    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...

    Hello, With spring in full swing where I live my attention has been turning towards outdoors projects.

    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)...

    Hello all, I have a somewhat time-sensitive question, as I need to decide before tomorrow morning, but I can always have someone make an adjustment for me if required. I am going to be away for a week and I'm not sure if I should cover my emersed growth setup with seran wrap or leave it...

    I am interested in people's experience of growing *Cyperus papyrus* "Tut" as an emersed plant in an aquarium with fish or shrimps. I'm wondering if all that root biomass may put a lot of CO2 into the substrate and affect the bacterial community in either a good or bad way with regard to the...

    Hi, so I recently started a DSM tank in my 12 G L. It's my first time doing a set up like this so I think I've run into some hiccups. Right now, I have some Marsilea Minuta, Pearl Weed, and Hydrocotyle sp. Japan emersed planted. The Pearl Weed and Hydro were bought from the LFS already submersed...

    Does anyone have any experienced with going from emersed staurogyne repens to immersed? Recently I grew out a large portion of staurogyne repens emersed (from 3 tiny plantlets ended up with almost .5kg of s. repens). Decided to see how it will transform to immersed growth. Just curious if...
