    This is my very first aquarium! Let me know what you all think! Its 20 gallons. I have a few rocks and some driftwood I found while hiking, scouring beaches in Southern California. I boiled it all and soaked it in water for weeks prior to placing it in. The curvy tree on the left is actually a...

    I have read that micro sword / copragrass (Lilaeopsis novae-zelandiae) prefers to have a softer substrate. If I use Eco-Complete Coarse will it still carpet the tank or will it not do as well because of the rock? Lighting is a 2 bulb T5 HO light with a 24w Flora Sun Max Plant Growth bulb and a...

    OK, so I have a fluval edge. Already that is a huge challenge for many things. I have done DIY light mod, simply changed the bulbs for 2x LED 2.1W MR11s, and added 2x small LED bars which apparently have 3W each. It is literally all I can squeeze in the small compartment at the top of the Edge...

    Well my micro swords have been sprouting like mad in my 29. I have a good handful that I pulled this afternoon during weekly maintenance if anyone in the North Metro to Fort Collins area would like them.

    Hi. I'm looking to buy some red root floater. Anyone have some? Thanks! EDIT: I decided I'm going to buy the microsword at the LFS. I am only looking for red root floater now, but if you are selling other plants let me know what they are too please Thanks!
  10. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hi guys. I have a 30 gallon breeder tank that has 3 types of foreground plants. The echinodorus tenellus (micro sword) and the lilaeopsis seem to be growing in well together mixed, so I let them run amok with each other but i cleared a space in the middle to make room for dwarf hairgrass to grow...

    Hey everyone, I am back again, and going to attempt my first moss(christmas) wall, as well as microsword carpeting. I tried dwarf hairgrass in this tank but it collected a ton of green hair algae. It seems to be very prevalent in this tank. Probably due to the 30W lighting on the 10galons and...

    This thread is intended to be a log for my 36 gallon bow front aquarium. The tank was started on Jan 30, 2010. My general goal is to have a "cool" tank. Unfortunately, the more cool things I see, the more I realize they can't all coexist, nor can I afford them all, nor do I have the heart to...
