    I am planning to setup a plant only low-medium tech 2 gallon nano cube (7.87" x 7.87" x 7.87") for my desktop. I am not able to find good information on suitable lighting and filter (filter mainly for the flow). Please advice on to setup. Also the cube alone would cost me $60 so please let me...

    SO... I couldn't help myself, and I bought one of those marina betta kits. Ive been running a planted scape in a 5 gal Solo tank for months now, and absolutely love it. I had intentions of putting something small in my bathroom, no fish, maybe some Shrimp, and this little tank seemed so nice...

    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...

    Hi everyone! I finally started my first planted tank!The picture quality isn't the best. It is a Current Solo 5 gal desktop tank, the filter and lights came with set and I actually am really liking the setup so far, the current might be a bit strong though. I also added a heater (marine land...

  7. Planted Nano Tanks
    Hello, After a break from aquariums for about a year I got the itch and decided to invest in a 2.6 gallon nano cube due to space constraints in my apartment. I have done the planted thing once before but never with CO2. I am waiting on my new Aquatop LED light to come in...

    Hi. I'm planting a 1 gallon cube for some cherry shrimp. Do I need a filter? I don't know how I could fit a filter on this tank. If not, how often do I have to change the water? The plants I have right now are anubias with its leaves above the water (love the look) and two petite anubias. I'm...

    I want to get either a 7 gallon or more likely a 4 gallon cube in the semi-near future. I'd like to find a filter (hob or canister) that will work for these small tanks (4 or 7 gallon) and have adjustable/very gentle outflow (thinking of getting a small fish that is sensitive to strong...

    Note:Not my tank or photo, found it here unfortunately the poster hasn't been active posting in this forum since 2010. So I wanted to ask if of you plant gurus might know what these plants are? (this is a 7 gallon nano tank according to its owner) I'm especially curious what the plant in...

    I bought an Evolve4 a little while ago on clearance... Hate it ... Already looking for its replacement and was curious about the varying sizes of Ehiem Aquastyle. Specifically if the stock lights are adequate for medium light plants, and if the stock filter is mild enough for a betta without...

    So I ordered some plants that come in today, and want to combine them with a few I have... Ultimately I want to st up my 1 gallon cube with some organic miracle grow capped with small gravel, and planted with my (somehow still alive) Argentinian sword plant (the leaves are just starting to...

    This tank was created for and inspired by my new twin tail halfmoon betta. I pulled the Anubias and blue gravel from my 20h; used Floramax I had left from another scape, added DHG, and threw in a stem of Pogostemon pumilus. I'm not 100% on the placement of the Mopani, and will probably replace...

    I recently obtained a 12-gallon next-gen JBJ nanocube with 8 Cree LED bulbs (5 blue and 3 white) integrated into the hood, which I've been finding to be a little too blue and low-intensity for my taste. Has anyone owning one of these swapped out or (for instance, with flexible LED strips)...

    Hi all! I have two questions for all of you out there! :D I just set up my planted tank and have added my first couple plants, 6 ghost shrimp and fish. While the plants did not seem to mind the level of flow in the tank, the fish and shrimp seem to be having some trouble. Is there any way to...

    Hi all Long time since my last project I started this tank since my nano-reef went downhill with the summer heat, but it has been stable and thriving as a nano planted tank. Even the RCS don't seem to mind the heat! (up to 84 F) I use a small PC fan for cooling It's a Boyu copy of an NC6 with...

    Hi all I have a 6g nano cube that currently has 1 yellowtail damselfish, but i'm thinking of getting out of the saltwater hobby and staying on the freshwater side of things. I no longer have as much time to maintain a saltwater nano. So i'm asking for suggestions: What would should i use this...
  20. Lighting
    I'm stumped. I started up a 1.5 gallon cubic nano a few weeks ago. It's fairly heavily planted with a mix of medium to high light plants, and lighting is from a single 15W daylight CF bulb about three inches above the top of the water, and ten or so inches above the lowest point of the tank...
