  1. Tank Journals
    Hello everyone, This is my first attempt at a true nano tank. I kept planted tanks in my adolescence but never had the funds for co2, rimless tanks, etc so I'm excited for the opportunity to set this tank up. *This is a backlogged version as I didn't take pictures of the setup and have changed...

    Ive got a Fluval Flex 15 with a 75 watt heater, an additional 12w aquasky light in the lid, passive c02 and a 3w sub50gph uv sterilizer (not in the tank yet). Tank has been filled and filtering for 3 days - Ph is currently 7.4 and ammonia is at 1.0ppm. I'm planning to add 5 easy level plants on...

    First Thread guys!! So excited to join the community. I recently scaped a glass 2.5 gallon tank measuring 10L X 6W X8H. I bought an Azoo 60 filter and a Finnex Stingray clip on light (white, blue, and red,) and I plan to run DIY co2 diverting off of the main system I use on my planted leader...

    Hello there. After a lot of travel, moving to another apartment, I finally have enough time for aquascaping. Unfortunately i have place only for small tank in my new apartment. I chose 4,5 gallon tank with stone hardscape. While i'm waiting for new light I have some time to choose plants. I'm...

    Hi just would like to introduce myself and my tank to this subsection of the forum. This tank is about 4 months old now. Started with a dirted substrate from homemade vermicast and capped with sand. It is home to 6 White Cloud Minnows, 5 Lampeye Killis, Dozens of red cherry shrimp that keep...

    Ok so I have a 6 gallon nano that I fully planted and its been sitting for about 3 months now. It currently houses 3 guppy fry(who are about to be moved into the 20 now that they are big enough) and a snail. My first question is my Blue hygro plants are exploding out of the tank so I was...
  7. Equipment
    Hello all, I've decided to purchase a tank for the very first time. I want to create something in between an Iwagumi tank and a Japanese landscape, perhaps of mountains and caves and bonsai. I want it to be tropical fish friendly so that I can get small community colourful fish with a...

    Hello all, Its been awhile, but I'm finally back in the hobby and back down the rabbit hole of spending entirely too much money on aquariums. :grin2: Back in January I set up Nano Iwagumi style low-tech system. Equipment and stocking is as follows: Fluval Spec V Finnex Planted Plus Clip on...
  9. Substrate
    Setup: Low-tech 3 1/2 gallon All of the plants I currently plan to use don't need to be planted in soil. Three of the four can be either planted or attached to rocks, ornaments, wood, and so on. The fourth is a moss. I've been doing a lot of web searches and reading old threads about...
  10. Low Tech Forum
    Hello everyone! I got interested in having a planted tank after having a simple 4L tank with a betta fish. I thought it would be healthier for my betta to be in a 20L tank. So my setup is the following: Dennerle 20L nano tank Dennerle Nano filter Dennerle Nano Deponit mix 2-4mm pea type...

    Hi everyone, This week I started a new nano tank while deconstructing my other two 10 gal tanks, this jar can hold about 5 gallon but with substrate it about 4 gallon. Right now it is stocked with 5 pygmy cories, Red Tiger Lotus, Monte Carlo, Aponogeton Crispus, and Hydroc. Triparta, some kind...

    Welcome everyone, to my first Tank Journal. I've been meaning to type this up for several months, but figured I'd wait until it was more complete and this snow day has made me pretty lazy, so I've nothing better to do! Scroll down for a TL;DR, but please, read! I got this tank from a friend...
  13. Planted Nano Tanks
    Hi all! I just got a ~2.6g Fluval and am wondering what fish, if any, do you think would be suitable? I'm not really into bettas and would rather stick with pygmy corys or some tetra fry then move them up to our larger 20g or 40g tank as they grow. I'm OK with shrimp/micro crabs/snails, too...
  14. Planted Nano Tanks
    Hi everyone, I'm new to planted tanks this is my 3rd attempt to get my 5.5 gallon up and running. First one failed horribly to white mold/fungus which I found out doesn't work well in tropical climates. The next got overrun by diatoms because the HC had a hard time rooting to the aqua soil...
  15. Planted Nano Tanks
    Hello All, Wondering if anyone has any sage advice on my 5 gallon planted nano which is languishing after 2+ years of adjustments and upgrades. Basic observed issues are: - Yellowing of plants - Slow growth - Weak rooting of plants (other than dwarf grass) - Constant low-grade algae bloom...

    I've got these three 20 litre nano tanks, all suffering from unstoppable GDA (atleast that's what i think it is). They've been running for three months, and i dont know what to do. CO2-supply is around 30 mg/l. The light is a Daytime Cluster 70.3, with one 11W cluster over each tank (6500K). I...

    Hello - This is my first time posting, however I have been reading and enjoying this site for a few months. Attached are some images of my Marineland Contour 3g. Some of the LEDs have "died" however Marineland has responded and is sending a replacement - yet to arrive though I'm sure it...

    I'm working on a new planted tank. It's a 7.9 gallon fluval flora tank with a Wave Point 6 inch High Output 10,000k light. I plan on planting HC for a carpet and maybe red Myrio as a background. I'll be injecting CO2 and I want the substrate to resemble ADA aqua soil although I'm still deciding...
