    Been a longtime lurker on this forum, made an account so I could keep track of a couple threads, now figure it's time to start posting! I've been keeping aquariums for several years, first one was a half gallon jar someone gave me with a betta fish in it, if you can even call that an aquarium...

    Hello đź‘‹ new here! I recently got into planted tanks several months ago and it's been fun learning about the hobby - wish I'd done it sooner! I have a 29g and a 9g running right now plus a small hoarding of emersed farms. Looking at setting up a larger tank in the near future. (Possibly a...

    Hello fellow aquarium enthusiasts! My name is Audrey. I have lived on the seacoast of New Hampshire my whole life and will be graduating from college this May. I am lucky enough to live at home, so the only limits on tank size (and numbers) is what my family is willing to tolerate (they're...

    Hello!! I joined this forum because I'm on my 4th attempt at a planted tank. The past two have been moderately successful.. meaning it never went BAD before... but they never actually thrived. I'm doing A LOT more research this time because I want a successful tank. Part of the difficulty is...

    Hi All, Introduction post. I'm a third generation convict (Australian) and am just starting my foray into the world of planted aquariums. In terms of my background in aquariums, started when I was around ten with goldfish (surprised?). From there it progressed, in my early teens I started...

    Hi! I am new to aquariums in general but extremely new to live plants and the likes that come with it. Any tips and info are highly appreciated because I am eager to learn as much as I can to create a thriving aquarium that is best for the fish and plants. Today, I bought a Aqueon 10 gal...

    Hi, I'm Rette. I live in Northern Colorado and have really only dabbled in aquatic husbandry. I've kept a handful of bettas alive the last couple years (simultaneously even) and have recently branched into starting a planted 10 gallon tank. This has quickly corrupted me into planting all of my...

    Hi everyone! I am lucky to have stumbled upon this forum, there's a lot of helpful info on here! There's a lot though, and it's going to take a lot of time to get through everything. I'm not really sure what we're supposed to put in here, but I used to have a 30 gallon with some guppies and...

    Hello everyone, My name is Brian and I recently dipped my toes into the world of Planted Tanks! I had occasionally thought about owning a fish tank again, especially after the passing of our family dog earlier this year. After much time and stumbling into videos by Joey aka "King of DIY" on...

    On my profile it says I need to do this, so, here I am. I keep bettas & I am a moderator of r/bettafish. I like to keep plants that are easier, but not entirely low maintenance like anubias (although I do love mine.) I've kept cabomba, wisteria, s. repens, a variety of crypts, several sword...

    Hello! I've always wanted to have a beautiful planted aquarium, and though I can't have anything huge, I decided a nanotank would be great to try my hand at it! I've got a 5g with nothing in it, and I'm looking for people to talk to who might know what plants would be good for a beginner, and...
