    Hello, everyone. I'm putting together a 46-gallon setup and I've had an thought that's a bit unconventional so I immediately came here. I've scaped the tank so that there's an outcropping of stone extending towards the center to mimic a cliff-of-sorts. On this, I'd like to plant a Red Dwarf...
  2. Lighting
    Hey everyone! While I was away on business my girlfriend saw an entire 10-gallon starter kit (tank, hood, filter, air pump, etc.) for $5 at a garage sale and swooped it up for me. The tank is a bit dated but is still in great condition. I want to do a planted tank, but the hood uses two tubular...

    I've been getting weird growth with my rotala green. I's been growing quite fast and nicely but the problem is that it grows very horizontally with it's leaves really close to it's stem, except at the tip.

    Hello everyone my name is brian. A little background I have been running a 150 gallon salt water reef aquarium for about 2 years when I decided it was to much to keep up and I was craving the look of a nicley planted fresh water aquarium! So i switched over and now have a 3 week old fresh...

    The amount of growth I've witnessed in this little gem has blown my mind (except for the lack of growth of the h.m) Lighting is 2 x 12" 7w 4700k p.o.s. wal mart lights and a 18-led tetra led strip ~3w. Some of the plants... Cabomba, Cryptocoryne, H.m., Anubias nana, Anubias congensis (I think)...
