  1. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    Hello, I am wanting to create my first planted tank and am new to the hobby but have been watching videos on it for a long time. Finally taking the plunge and wanting to create my first tank as an island style nano tank ideally with a small school of nano fish (I like neon tetra, chilli rasbora...

    Hi Community!!! I have a 4L flower vase as a tank. Have 5 types of plants 3 Cherry shrimps (saw 1 tiny baby) No filter just air pump (aqueon 10) for a bit of water movement/ aeration?

  3. Tank Journals
    I was pretty active on this forum in like 2012-2015 (as a lurker if not a frequent poster), but kinda drifted away from the hobby for a while when I went to college and then moved around the country a bunch. I'm getting back into the hobby of late. I've had this ten gallon tank set up with just...

    Hello everyone, I'm new to the aquascaping hobby and just started my first planted tank. It's a 7-gallon tank and is two weeks old. I am having issues with my Mini Christmas moss and am concerned because it has been yellowing for the past few days (planted about five days ago), and I have been...
  5. Aquascaping
    Hi everyone! This is my first time owning any kind of aquatic life and I bought a 6 gallon planted tank about a month ago. For now, I have some basic plants and decor as well as a nerite snail. I’m planning to later add some cherry shrimp + java moss and then a male betta. I guess I’m looking...
  6. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hi everyone, I have recently found a new annoying creature popping up all over my tank, first noticeable 2 days ago and now they are everywhere. They aren't ramshorn as they don't have the right shape, and there are no new additions to the tank. Has anyone seen this before? Any and all help is...

    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...
  9. Planted Nano Tanks
    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...
  11. Planted Nano Tanks

  12. Planted Nano Tanks
    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...
  13. 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...
  14. Planted Nano Tanks
    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...
  15. 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...
  16. 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...

  18. Tank Journals
    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...
  19. 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...
  20. 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...
