I'm setting up a 55 gallon planted tank. This will be my first planted tank, though I do have a lot of non-planted aquarium experience (Cichlids, Community Tanks, Saltwater Reef and FOWLR) and have done a ton of research. So far I have just about everything I need to get started except plants...

Hello, I want to start a planted tank and I woukd like to know if floramax from CaribSea is a good starter for a begginer like me. I'm thinking of doing about 2" of floaramax and topping it off with 1" of pea gravel. Is this ok or should I use something eles.

Starting my first journal here, with my second tank ever and my first foray into the planted sector of freshwater aquaria. My goal with this is to be a relatively low-maintenance tank without sacrificing on the beauty.

I'm thinking about getting some for my 10-gal that will be my first planted tank. Some one on here told me that tiger barbs would be too much for a 10-gal as they are very nippy. I went to the LPS and notice these beautiful fish called long finned blue danios, but the info available elsewhere on...
Hey everyone just signed up. Been into tanks for about 4 years but this is my first venture into planted. I plan on keeping it just plants for now. I was looking for any advice and suggestions on things I may be lacking.
