  2. Tank Journals
    Just thought I'd start another tank journal for my 10 gallon which was set up ~4 days ago. It looks much prettier than my 40 gallon (Most likely because of experience and cost). I have 21 Stems on S. Repens on the way for carpeting :) Don't ask for plant names because I have no idea :)...

    I am fairly new to the hobby, and am starting a 5.5 gallon planted tank. I recently purchased an Odyssea 14" 24watt power compact looking at a 6500K bulb. Along with my Aquatek mini Co2 regulator, will this be enough light to grow an HC carpet in Aquasoil Amazonia? Pardon the pun but I'm not up...
  4. Planted Nano Tanks
    I bought a large straight sided vase at Marshall's recently to experiment with dirt. This dirt may be a risk because it is the local farmer's compost product which includes cow manure. However, it's been sitting in a pile next to my driveway for at least a year and a half so the rain and...

    So I picked up a 10g at Petco's sale and want to do something with it. :) My experience has been with a little 2.5g betta tank and messing around with shrimp, so I want easy-ish fish until I have faith that I won't do something terrible. Plans: Light to moderate planting. 6-8 schooling fish...

    I am getting ready to move my T5 HO light fixture from my 10gallon tank to a 20 along with a compressed gas CO2 system.

    So I've pretty much read every forum and article google will send me to regarding the walstad method and I've even read her book (Skipping over the heavy scientific parts) but there are still a few things I'm questioning before I go dirting a 10 gallon I'm planning. From what I've read, I've...

    Hello, I'm starting a new 20 gallon dirted planted tank, no CO2. I was wondering what some are some good light fixtures I could use? I had great help on my last tank from the forum, and I'm glad to be asking questions here :)

    Visual log of my progress. Too much to be said for now, only wish that I hadn't tried to get so fancy with the whole thing! Had tried to add in DIY skimmers, had a power head, have a sizable HOB but am currently only using it to create a soft current and collect debris in a DIY screen filter...

  18. Tank Journals
    Hey all. I have been into planted tanks for many years, but have not actively worked on an aquarium for about 2 years. Unfortunately, I came to find that I was really noobing it up on my earlier tanks, and now i'm hoping to redeem myself a bit. I've been lazy about making the journal, but I'll...
  19. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hey guys! I've had my sights on a 150g tall tank for a while and I have some questions... How would one go upon planting and whatnot in the substrate? It seems like it would be a long reach to the bottom. And I currently have a 80 gallon filter that hangs on the back of on one of my tanks and...
