  1. Planted Nano Tanks
    Hi all, I haven't been the most diligent about keeping up with my cheap tank, but I don't think I'm doing an awful job either. I have a cycled 10 month old 5g tank with 8 Chili rasboras in it. I've got a mix of plants - a lot of surface plants to keep the fish comfortable. I do need to cut some...
  2. Planted Nano Tanks
    Hi all, I have recently started a heavy planted nano tank and the end goal is to have a few shrimp and fish in it while being as low maintenance as possible but I don't know how viable this idea I have is. To start off, my tank is 24liter(5.5 galons I think) and it has been cycling for 2 weeks...
  3. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hi all, I'm looking to rescape my 4.5 g rimless nano tank. I"m okay on mine now but I think I learned with such a small tank I need to relax on the hardscape and make more room for plants and have more water volume. My tank currently has volcanic rock and a piece of wood that casts a mighty...

    I went in to buy a second Fluval Spec III (2.6gal) today but the pet store was out. I saw they had their own brand, the Imaginarium Pro 3.7 gallon, and decided to try that out. Like the Fluval, it has its own compartment for the water pump and a sponge filter. The compartment looks bigger than...

    Hullooooooooo! My name's Mouse, I'm new around here, and I have to say I was really surprised to see what looks to be an active aquarium forum in 2019! Dang! :D These days it seems like forum culture has really died down, so I'm excited to jump in and try and get myself situated in the...

    Hi everyone, I am new to the forum, and was wondering if anyone could help me diagnose a problem with my planted beta/snail tank. My tank is about 2 months old and is planted with Java Fern, Anubias Nana, Monte Carlo, and a little Dwarf sag. It initially had some Hygrophila pinnatifida as well...

    Hi all, Long time lurker, and posting to get some advice on setting up my son's new Spec V tank. Using stock lighting with no plans to inject CO2 at the moment. Likely going to use Fluval Plant and Fish stratum, as it's what we have around. We also have some Flourite Black, but I don't love...
  9. Planted Nano Tanks
    Hey guys, I just came into work today (I work for a university computer lab) and was excited and horrified to see a betta that someone had purchased and put in this despicably small container. While I don't think I can convince them to let me get the guy a new home in something bigger, I...

    Hi guys, I have been in the aquarium hobby for 8+ years and in the planted tank hobby for about 1.5 years. I have tried so many different things and I feel like I am still coming up short.

  14. Planted Nano Tanks
    Welcome As a mediumly experienced shrimp tank keeper, this super tiny :icon_roll tank is a bit of a change for me. At 4.6 Gallons without considering the mass taken up by the substrate, rocks, and wood, and plants this guy requires so much attention it's stressing me out a bit. So, I wanted...

    I want to preface this entry by saying that I am complete noob, so please pardon any errors or omissions on my part. I want to say that I am highly impressed by the aquascapes that people in this community have created, so much so that I was compelled to try this out myself. I was thinking...

  19. Planted Nano Tanks
    Hey guys!- When I say brand new, I mean brand new. It's a regular ol' 5g rectangular aquarium. I've got about an inch of black fluorite on the bottom, and water filled to about halfway. The filter I intend to use is just a Marina Power Filter S15, and if I remember right (I'll check the box...
