    Hi, I've been lurking around the forums for a bit doing research and finding inspiration. The community looks great so I decided to join in! I guess you could say I got bit by the aquascaping bug (or is it fish?) this year by watching a lot of youtube videos. Anyone else enamored with Serpa...

    Hey all! I just wanted to share with you my first planted tank. It is an 8x8x8 nano cube which holds about 1.5 gallons.

    Ive had my tank up for about a month now. I had a thread on a site that I wont name, but there is not a lot of activity there, and I have read so so so much helpful advice here so I decided to move my journal for the tank over here. The tank is a 36g bowfront, and my first time doing any type...

    hello PTF! I'm starting my first planted tank. A 10 gal I plan on putting cherry shrimp in. I bought a Marineland Double Bright LED light and am worried that it will not be enough to use a DIY CO2 system with like I had planned on. I can easily supplement with a painters light but would be...

I do not...
