  2. The Lounge & Introductions
    Hello, all! Nice to meet ya. I'm Specs. Needless to say, my knowledge of aquarium keeping (planted or not) is vastly outdated; with the extent of it being what little I acquired from my grandmother as a kid. She was a very low-maintenance gal. She didn't believe in doing water changes or...
  3. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hey so I've decided to start a tank up after not owning any for a while. I have been very interested in putting shrimp in this one. I am currently running the tank empty for a few days before I get some heartier fish in there to get everything going. I was wondering if anyone had any tips on...

  7. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    On a whim I bought "Medina 12-4-8 Liquid Fertilizer" while at the grocery store. I know it probably wasn't the best choice, as I did practical research after I got home, but from what i've found it shouldn't be too bad...? It contains: Nitrogen (N) 12.00% Phosphoric Acid (P2O5) 4.00% Potash...
  8. Low Tech Forum
    So as the title states it, I'm a total noob and I have no idea what I'm doing. I've never owned a fish tank before, and tbh I've never owned any fish or grown any plants either. But I think I've read enough to get a general understanding about how planted tanks work. Right now, I have a 55...

  13. Planted Nano Tanks
    I've been lurking here and a couple other aquarium forums for a while. I'm in college and I'm hoping to setup a cheap planted cherry shrimp tank to put on my desk next year. Here is my budget at the moment. Current budget is for a 10 gallon. I'm willing to go much smaller but when I tried...
