    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I'm planning on making a SE asian pond aquascape. The tank I've decided on using is the UNS 45S which is about 5 gallons. I won't have CO2, I will have filtration, I want equipment to be as low profile as possible, and I want the aquarium to be pleasing to view from any angle (or nearly so)...

    Hi All, I have recently set up a new 2.6 gallon Fluval tank. It is housing my sick betta and then eventually a shrimp only tank. This tank is completely stock and pretty heavily planted. I'd like to know what plants have been successfully grown in this tank and any fertilization...

    EDIT 1/30/20: Here's how it looks right now, day 16 of dry start: Hi everyone! I'm putting together a 5 gallon desktop Iwagumi tank. This will be my first ever planted tank, but I'm going for it. I've been wanting to do this in the back of my mind ever since (like everyone else) I saw my...

    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 Ya'll, I come to you for the first time in a while for advise on how to deal with diatoms and brown hair algae in my new 5gal heavily planted tank. These are my specs tank: 5gal Light: High (8 hours) CO2: Injected (10 hours) Ferts: Seachem "EI" calculated using rotala butterfly...

    Hey everyone. I have had my first planted tank up and running for 6 months to varied degrees of success (picture below!). It had a medium amount of growth, but I had to toss all my java moss due uncontrollable algae and gave away an amazon sword because I did not realize how quickly it would...
  16. For Sale/Trade
    I test equipment out and no longer have a need for the items below. They are all in excellent conditions and barely used. All equipment below was purchased around October-November of 2018. The tank and stand are for pick up only. I live in Los Angeles and can coordinate pickup as needed...
  17. Lighting
    I've been looking for a low profile lighting solution for a 14g cube and could use some advice. Not planning to go co2 on this tank so I don't need high light. I really liked the look of the Fluval 3.0 nano, but losing settings on a power outage and the app requirement are major downsides...
  18. Planted Nano Tanks
    Last summer I broke down some tanks and took a small break from the hobby due to work/travel. Now that everything has settled back down I would like to set up a new tank again. I would prefer to use the equipment I have on hand. Rimless 3 gallon (12 long x 8 deep x 9 tall) Finnex Stingray...
  19. Lighting
    I love the Fluval Nano Light. It has a nice built-in timer with multiple lighting profiles and sunrise and sunset dimming, but I wanted more control. Specifically, I wanted to replicate Diana Walstad's 14-hour Siesta lighting schedule. Walstad, a scientist and skilled aquatic gardener, is author...

    Hi All, New to this forum, and have not had a tank in years. Previously had always had 40 gallon+ tanks with simple plants and lighting, stocked semi-randomly and impulsively. Recently had a friend give me a Marineland Portrait 5 gallon aquarium, with the back filter section divider removed...
