  1. General Planted Tank Discussion
    I'm having trouble with my nano Iwagumi setup, note that this is my first high-tech planted tank and I really did not plan nor did research about the carpet(hc cuba) that i planted. I was surprised how fast the carpet is growing and my problem is that the hardscape is getting devoured by the...
  2. Planted Nano Tanks
    I currently have a 10 gallon planted tank. I want a denser carpet growth, which most of the species need CO2. I'm also noticing some decaying of leaves and yellowing of others (which is probably nutrient issues; I need a good fertilizer). My question is, is a 10 gallon tank too small for a CO2...
  3. Planted Nano Tanks
    For some context, I made this tank with aquarium silicone glue and rocks that I found (I made sure they would not alter the PH). It has been running for a little over a month and I added 6 CPDs (celestial pearl danios/galaxy rasboras) last week. One of them had been missing for 3 days, but I...
  4. Fish
    I'm looking into setting up a nano Walstad-style tank (~5g). I will definitely be adding cherry shrimp and a nerite, but I'm undecided on the fish. My water is on the harder side, and I'm obviously limited on space, so it would probably be best to have something really tiny or that doesn't need...
  5. Fish
    I have a 12" cube (7.5G) opening up shortly and I was thinking of doing a native biotope with: 3 Least Killifish 6 Eastern Glass Shrimp 2 Ramshorn Snails I'm wondering if the tank will get out of control once these guys start reproducing. What do you think?

    Well, I have been suggesting high end bettas as a nano tank fish for a while now and it finally bit me....I went and got one. Hes coming in in a few weeks and I wanted to set up a simple minimalist tank to sit in my Sunroom/Den that would show off the fish and look classy. Heres the betta I...
  7. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Whats up everyone, this is my first post on this site. I am currently in the process of moving and unfortunately i have to take down my two tanks (75g cichlid tank and 20g shrimp/nano tank). I have about a month in between closings but luckily my buddy said I can move the 20g to his house for...
  8. Lighting
    As I'm contemplating a low profile shade for my Chihiros WRGB2 (Their stock one seems bulky but I may give up and get it), I remembered I had made one for my ONF Flat nano+ that worked really well, fit it's aesthetic, and was essentially free. I thought I would share it if glare is annoying for...

  10. Planted Nano Tanks
    After some research I've been planning a fluval 95g Co2 kit. But I'm planning on taking the regulator and putting in on a 20oz Co2 tank. Will be buying a better defuser/bundle counter. Here's the products https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B008ZAAP2K/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_D9X7PHC1247DHD8JXBAW...
  11. Low Tech Forum
    About a week and a half ago I had a smaller school of vietnamese minnows to my (heavily) planted nano tank. This tank has been running for almost three years. I've had very few problems with it. Recently, its only fish-inhabitant has been one (very) old and lonely tetra. A couple of days after...

    If my "big" 50 litre planted community tank is considered "nano", then what should I call my "little" 10 litre shrimp tank? Micro? - no wait that's bigger than nano.... Pica? - sounds silly.... So I'm going with the "nano-nano" tank :grin2: Thought I'd jump straight in with a video: Friday...
  13. Tank Journals
    Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum and excited to be here! I wanted to share my new tank setup so far. Being in lock down in New Jersey for the last 9 weeks has pulled me back into the aquarium hobby after almost 10 years away. I used to keep as many fish tanks in high school and college as my...
  14. Plants
    So I have been having some issues with algae in my 5 gallon nano tank The algae is dark brown/black and appears to be eating away at the plants. I've been having this issue since I first set up the tank (originally using a Walstad style topsoil blend, currently using ecocomplete) with the...

  16. Planted Nano Tanks
    Happy Thursday, I have a planted 11 gallon frameless Aqueon tank. It is fluval strata along with other additives in an Iwagumi style tank. It is just shrimp and Endlers, co2 injection along with dosing ferts. I have a Fluval planted Nano LED on it now, the plants are seemingly coming back...
  17. Planted Nano Tanks
    I have a ten gallon aquarium with three black devil snails, two mystery snails, one nerite snail, and seven red neon blue eye rainbow fish. I wouldn't have this much livestock except the place I order from is really generous with freebies. I have only ordered one black devil, one mystery, one...
  18. Algae
    Hello everyone! Let me start by saying, I am a total newb. I don't understand a lot of things about planted aquariums yet, but I am doing my very best. Now that that's out of the way, I need help identifying this crap in my 10 gallon aquarium. When I first noticed it, I thought it was...
