  1. Tank Journals
    This weekend I started on my first planted tank and I wanted to share it with you guys! I'm hoping you will have pointers and suggestions for how to improve as I go along. It's still a work in progress, but I think it looks pretty good so far. I need to get more plants as you can see. I just got...
  2. Fish
    Hey there! Right now I’m working on my first ever planted tank! : ) My tank is an Aqua One AR850 which is 165 litres (43.58 gallons) and currently I’m just working on hardscaping. Once I add water + plants I plan to leave it that way for two months or more so I can cycle it, adjust the...
  3. Tank Journals
    What's up everyone? So, this is my first planted tank I have ever tried. I have been a saltwater guy but I want to try out this side. I really like it and I got hooked up on a great deal on a high tech tank. What plants do you guys think would look good in this tank with the scape? Also, really...
  4. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    Greetings - First post, first time setting up a planted tank. I am going to be setting up a 75g planted tank this weekend and have a question regarding the cycling of a planted tank. I have read many different things about doing so. I'm starting out with 7 beginner plants, got one of each to...
  5. The Lounge & Introductions
    Howdy from Texas. I'm planning on purchasing a 12 gal long rimless bookshelf tank to start my journey into aquascaping. I have been out of the aquarium hobby for about 25 years, so I have been relearning the basics and exploring new tech. I'm excited I found this forum.
  6. The Lounge & Introductions
    Hello everyone, My name is Brian and I recently dipped my toes into the world of Planted Tanks! I had occasionally thought about owning a fish tank again, especially after the passing of our family dog earlier this year. After much time and stumbling into videos by Joey aka "King of DIY" on...
  7. The Lounge & Introductions
    Hey there, I'm Dan. New to the hobby, but excited at the possibilities. I honestly got interested in a live planted tank due to the fact my apartment doesn't really get enough natural light for normal houseplants. This is a great alternative. I love coming home and relaxing in front of my...
  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...
  9. Planted Nano Tanks
    Decided that my office needed a tank. This is my first attempt at planted tank, and frankly my first tank since middle school. This has definitely been a learning process, but none of could have been possible without the information and advise from all the much more knowledgeable people on this...
  10. Low Tech Forum
    Hello everyone! I just wanted everyone's opinion on my first tank that I have set up (minus the fish). The plants are two java ferns, two African ferns, and four anubias nana. I have also attached three images of plants that my fiance got me. She put them in there and threw away the package...
  11. Low Tech Forum
    I have kept tanks for a little while, but never succeeded with plants. But I became more interested in sustainable tanks/low tech planted tanks early this year. So I made my own little experiment. There were a few constraints: 1) It had to be low cost (tank, gravel and ornament all second...
