    EDIT: Solved. They are Phylum Bryozoa Class Phylactolaemata (aka moss animals). Tiny filter feeding animals that live and grow in colonies. See the thread below for details. At first I thought I spotted some hydra all lined up doing a conga line dance, but as I looked closer and fiddled with...

    Hi, stupid question, I know. I have a 20gal long aquarium and a NICREW Classic LED Plus light. According to their website, this light is 22W, 1150lm and 6500k. From my research I know that this light is on the low end of wattage for plants, but I don't have the money to invest in a twinstar or...

    Hi all, I have a large open top tank (200X70X60 cm) That has been running for roughly a year. As visible on the picture below, my scape contains a large "wall", which holds a very large amount of ADA Malay soil behind it as well as some power sand on the bottom. My goal has always been to use...

    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...

    I decided to take the time to establish a few guidelines for hobbyist using the Dry Start Method. I will attempt to not create a novel here. I've successfully dry started/flooded Micranthemum Monte Carlo. This was a 10 week dry start using ADA Aqua-soil, in a 40 LONG. I've dry started in...

    Hello, So i have scoured far and wide to no avail! I am trying to figure out what this area is on my moss. I'm not sure what type of moss it is as i don't remember. This area started a couple weeks ago and has slowly expanded to about the size of a half dollar coin. I have tried to suction...

    Title says it all. I'm hoping someone can ID what is going on with my plant. I purchased an Anubias about 3 months ago and have it in a 5 gallon solo aquarium. I do not dose Flourish and I do not use Co2, and use the standard LED lights that came with the tank. I'm noticing on all but the...

    Hi, I'm new to planted aquariums and haven't had rasboras before. I have had 10 Harlequin Rasboras for just under a month now. They have been doing really well, but I just noticed that one has growth on its mouth and another has a white fin on one side. I'm not sure what this is or is causing...

    I kept jungle val in the past in a 10 gallon which never melted right away and grew like grass, had to trim it every week. Now I have it in my 20 Long and 55 gallon tanks and they are not growing long at all, it is almost hard for me to tell difference between sag and jungle val. I want it to...
  12. Algae
    Hi all Does anyone know what these small upside-down triangular things growing on the end of the driftwood are? They appeared about six weeks ago. The driftwood was new and came from the LFS, and has been in the tank for about five months. The growths look pretty so I'll leave them for now...

    I've heard that anacharis will slow or stop the growth of algae in tanks. I was considering using some in my 10 gallon, but I also have quite a bit of subwassertang and fissidens. Will it damage my mosses?

    I have read a lot about the controversy of actinic lights in the planted tank. Some say that they do nothing but grow algae or make plants grow thin and tall. (Stringy) Others say they are great. Well, being a saltwater fan and experimentalist; I wanted to see for myself. After a 6 month...
  16. Planted Nano Tanks
    Hey! I write for TheAquariumGuide, and I've been tasked with building a Nano Tank with the fastest plant growth possible. Luckily, this is a company project, so money isn't an issue! ;) Our goal is to capture the time-lapsed growth of a tank from planting until maturity. We'll be using a Canon...

    Hey everyone, Was in LA for a few days last week and had to leave my tank unattended during that time (can't trust the roommate to take care of things, haha). Anyway, I left it with a double dose of nutrients (NPK and Fe) to account for the missed dosings and I knew I would do my usual 50%...
