  5. Aquascaping
    Hello, this is my first aquascape, and I would appreciate your feedback. Something seems off, so I've included a couple ideas. However, feel free to deviate from my points. Top half seems too empty More soil to raise the rocks? Add more rocks? The wood on the right side seems off Too much...

    Hi all, I am a vivarium-ist who decided to try my hand at fish and planted tanks. Thought I would post some pics of my first hardscape. It's an 11.4 gallon tank with ADA Amazonia, and I plan to plant it fairly heavily with carpeting plants up front, a lot of epiphytes on the driftwood and stems...

    Hello, Here's my new hardscape. I'm looking for plant suggestions. I'm pretty set on using rotala rotundofolia, Rotala H'ra in the background. With some Proserpinaca palustris in the middle to break the color with another tint. I might be missing some green though? Otherwise, I'm stuck with...

    Hello Everyone! This is my first post here and my first ever planted tank! I'm enjoying the process of learning and understanding the world of planted tanks. I just planted this tank a little over a week ago, but I do have new growth on all the plants already (which is very exciting)...

    First time doing a Forest Scape style tank, and thought I should get some feedback before filling. Any suggestions are welcome! I plan on stocking this with some Coral Moss, fissidens moss, hygrophila pinnatifida, Anubias nano petite, buce, and some crenata.
  12. Substrate
    I may be new to planted tanks, but I'm not new to rocks. I majored in geology and I've noticed that most "aquarium safe rocks" lists are somewhat... limiting. I have seen a lot of conflicting information, and I think it largely comes down to two mindsets: Some people ONLY recommend inert rocks...

    I plan on removing the large branch that I marked with red Xs. The pieces marked with blue dots were added and can be moved/removed. Should I add more rocks or branches anywhere? I plan on adding small skinny, flexible branches as roots in the final setup, making them look like they're growing...

    Hello all! I am new to the forum and would like some constructive criticism on how I should scape my 55 gallon (48x12x21). I have two ideas so far but it just seems like I'm not happy with either. My initial idea was to have two branches pieces of driftwood which you will see drawn in red, with...

    I've barely cleaned any of the rocks in my tank since it started, and now they are dark green, black in some places from build up and such. I suppose I thought it gave it a natural look but I'm starting to change my mind. Also, what do you use to clean them? Metal brush?

    Found these two pieces recently and was wondering if they would be safe to put in an aquarium. Are there ways to tell/test what kind of wood it is?
