  1. Tank Journals
    Hello, As I have already an "High tech" tank (140l), I would like to try something new. Someone told me (several months ago) about a well-planted (with delicate plants) on a non-CO2 injected tank. This tank is the @sudiorca's tank, describe here : sudiorca's non-CO2 supplemented softwater tank...
  2. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hi Guys, I just started my tank yesterday using the dry start method and i just have some few questions. 1. Is it okay if im using an airline tubing with an aerator to put air inside the tank? 2. Do i have to leave an opening in the lid? 3. Can i use dsm in sand substrate as well? 4. Is there...
  3. Plants
    So I just started up a new tank after moving and taking a break from the hobby. This tank has been running since the start of the month. Only have the betta(Dabadee) and two nerite snails that were added a few days ago. This one unknown plant is struggling. I used Fluval Stratum in the corner...
  4. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    Hello. I have a lengthy question and observation. So my house has a water softener because my water is extremely hard for drinking water being at 330ppm General Hardness. So Calcium and Magnesium is high. The water softener replaces Ca and Mg ions with sodium chloride so there should be more...
  5. Planted Nano Tanks
    New member here. It's a pleasure to be part of the planted tank community! I recently built my first planted 16g tank three weeks ago (done cycling three days ago) and wanted to get your thoughts. I own a 20g reef tank, but the fast-growing nature of a freshwater aquarium was tempting, and...
  6. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hello, I've had a 55 gallon reef tank going for the last 6 years and looking to try my hand at planted tanks. I converted a saltwater BioCube 14 using much of the equipment I already had. The tank is 3 weeks old and I'd like to know if it can house 20 Crystal Red Shrimp. No other livestock...

    Well after being out of the hobby for 10years or more, thought i'd dip my toes back in again. Its funny because much has changed and yet so much still the same so will be interesting to see how this evolves. Tank Fluval Flex 15L (15G) Lighting Hygger Planted+ 24/7 14W Co2 & Ferts KegKing...

    Hello TPT people!! I recently grew a passion for this hobby and I am so happy that this community is here. I look forward to learning from everyone. I just installed this tank in my moms office about 1.5 months ago.

    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...
  10. 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...
  11. 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...
  12. 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...
  13. 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...
  15. 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...
  16. 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...

    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...
