  2. Plants
    Hey! First off I just recently got into planted aquariums and decided to plant mine a month ago to see if I can get it figured out before setting up my new 75 gallon tank. I’ve had extraordinary help from all of you on this page and greatly appreciate it! Now for my question, I’ve had this plant...

  6. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hello Planted Tank Gurus, I've set up my very first Freshwater Planted Community Tank last year (around the month of July-August, 2016) and it's been running for about year and half now. It's a 38 Gal (L-36", W-12", H-18") Aqueon Tank which came with the startup kit. Initially I started with...

    Long time lurker first time poster, so I apologize in advance if you guys already covered this. I have a 40 gallon tank with about 24 cardinal tetras, a bristle nosed pleco and a betta. Just wondering what's the maximum amount of ghost shrimp and RCS I can have? Once these guys start growing...
  8. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    Hi, Who can think of a way to dose liquid KH or alk buffer using a dosing pump? It's easy to find solutions (no pun intended) for marine tanks OR powders for fresh water tanks. But I've not found a liquid product for fresh water. My tap water is 1KH so I need to dose alkalinity buffer, or...
  9. Tank Journals
    I'm starting this journal a bit late as my tank is quite established so I figured I'd start it off by showing the progression of my tank over the last year. Originally I started with a 20g long which got transplanted into my current 35g. At the time I had a snail, goldfish and two platies. I...

    Hi all! I added two silver/white female Mollies to my established 29gal community tank almost two weeks ago. They were great for about a week then the poo hit the fan, so to speak, after an ich treatment (I now know I need a quarantine tank!). The mollies actually really seemed to like the heat...

  14. General Planted Tank Discussion
    I recently cleaned out a 29 gal. aquarium that hasn't been in use for probably a couple of years now. I'm trying to set up a new community tank. Yesterday I put the sand and water into the tank. I used CaribSea Arag-Alive Live Reef Sand. It seems as if the sand has still not settled completely...
  15. Tank Journals
    Here is week number #3 of all the tanks (you can find the first two weeks in the pictures section). I have changed around the 5, 20 and the 29. I added One 23W 6500K Bulb to both the 20 and the 29. Over head in the front. Flourencents are still in the back. Here is the 5 gallon. I took the...
