  1. Plants
    Hello everyone, I'm new to the aquascaping hobby and just started my first planted tank. It's a 7-gallon tank and is two weeks old. I am having issues with my Mini Christmas moss and am concerned because it has been yellowing for the past few days (planted about five days ago), and I have been...
  2. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hey guys, So I recently setup a small aquarium for starting a RCS colony. I fishless cycled the tank and in the interim, started growing out a pearlweed carpet and ambulia forest as I thought these would give lots of hiding spots and surface area for algae films to grow. After ensuring the...
  3. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hey everyone! I’m ordering a new tank like the title states. It’s going to be hi tech. What plants would you guys suggest? I’ll have a big piece of drift wood and then some small seiru stones around. Any ideas would be helpful as I’m not too artistic. Thanks
  4. Plants
    Hi everyone, I am new to the aquarium world and bought a weed looking plant from my local pet store. I’m thinking about removing it, not only because it grows way too fast and looks a bit ugly, but because no google search can help me identify it and I don’t want to inadvertently harm my betta...
  5. Planted Nano Tanks
    Hi everyone! This is my first time owning any kind of aquatic life and I bought a 6 gallon planted tank about a month ago. For now, I have some basic plants and decor as well as a nerite snail. I’m planning to later add some cherry shrimp + java moss and then a male betta. I guess I’m looking...
  6. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hi guys, Thinking of starting a small 2.6 gallon scape and just making it a red cherry shrimp tank. Is it still necessary to cycle the tank if I plan on only starting with 20ish shrimp? Usually I would assume so, but their bio waste should be so low and I will have a strong pearlweed carpet and...

    Hello all, I am 21 days into a new planted tank intended for cherry shrimps in the future. So far, everything seems fine, some of the plants are growing new leaves. However, as of the past few days, I am starting to see green algae growing on rocks and the surface of the glass, they aren't...

  9. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    I just started my Walstad planted tank a week ago. I added organic soil beneath a layer of gravel. I've done a few water changes, but despite that this white stuff seems to keep growing... Could it be just biofilm? My water parameters seem to be okay according to my 6 in 1 test strips. The water...

    Hi everyone. I am trying to get everything I need to get my new 75 gallon going and the only thing I have left for my initial setup is a 300w heater. In my current 37 gallon I have a eheim which I’ve been pleased with so far. I was thinking about ordering an eheim e series 300w but am worried...

    Hi everyone, brand new to the forum about 6 months into planted tanks and just upgraded from a 37 gallon to a 75 yesterday. I’m in the process of setting up my new tank in a different area of my house so I can eventually transfer all of my current fish into new tank. I really want a canister...

    I am new to planted tanks and am trying to plant a 10 gallon shrimp tank and a 20 gallon fish tank. For the shrimp tank, ideally I would like to have thicker plant coverage on the sides and only a little in the middle, and a floating plant and ground cover. For the fish tank I was hoping for...

  19. The Lounge & Introductions
    Hi folks. I first joined this forum some years ago when embarking on a 60L planted tank, and then drifted off into houses, marriages and kids, eventually getting around to running a nice Juwel 260 bow-front tank as a heavily-planted fresh-water tropical setup. At it's peak it was pretty much...
  20. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hi all, new to planted aquariums and to this great site! I started by buying a 37 gallon tank (22” deep, minus a few “ of substrate), putting down some carib eco complete substrate, and got planting. My goal has been to do what I guess would be considered a “silent cycle.” Basically I just...
