  1. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hello everyone. It's been quite a while since I've posted here but I wanted to bring this to everyone's attention. Feel free to ignore if this has already been discussed. The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission (NC WRC) has issued a consumer alert warning that the invasive freshwater...

    Hello, I'm incredibly new to the forum, mostly because I made the account just to figure out what's going on with these cute little moss balls. I went to Montara Beach in California today, it was quite cold (60-65°F). Walking along the coastline, I kept finding these small little moss/algae...

    Hi, Bought 6 of these and I tore one apart for the sake of asking this question. They have a sort of short stringy texture and I had to use a fair bit of force to fully pull it apart. They can come apart in tufts if I pull them out, and they have tiny bubbles on the surface of the outer hairs...

    Hi all, I came across this forum when I bought a couple of those marimo "moss" balls (aka Cladophora and Aegagropila linnaei) from Amazon. I've been looking through all these cool tanks (esp pico sized ones) and am really excited about growing aquatic plants. Except I'm slowly killing my...

    Hello all, I am living in Japan with an approx. 10 gallon planted tank with a variety of Neocaridina cherry shrimp and plants, all purchased from my LFS. A few weeks ago I noticed the unfortunately too-common Mysterious White Worm/Fungus Cluster appeared on the heads of my RCS, though none of...

    Hi all, I'm new here and am excited to start a project -shrimp and marimo tank! I'm trying to spend on a dime, as I have gone overboard in the past w/ some tanks. I'm going to purchase a 2.5 gallon online and hopefully everything else locally (shrimp, sand, plants, etc.). Any tips would be...

    So I scraped the dirt tank for now because the dirt was still filled with little pieces of wood which would float up every now and then(After picking the big pieces out for an hour). This is a beginner set up so excuse the stupid pictures and descriptions. I will be taking pictures frequently to...

    I've seen pictures of this tank before, but when I found this video on YouTube it really got me thinking. This tank is beautiful with the simplicity of just the bare rocks, but it seems to me that after any length of time you'd start getting algae problems because of the lack of plants (and...

    I bought a marimo ball on eBay after I did some research on cultivating them. It is usual that they grow only around 5mm a year. I read that if you take one and make several little clumps out of it, it will grow much quicker. Has anyone ever done this with success? From the article below, the...
  10. Low Tech Forum
    I'm starting my first tank. I found a very nice glass 2.5g one that I plan to buy sometime next week. My priority in the new tank are my betta and marimo (claudophora aegopropila) who are currently sharing a tank a little over 1g. I'll probably add some riccia for the carpet and either...
