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Needless to say, my knowledge of aquarium keeping (planted or not) is vastly outdated; with the extent of it being what little I acquired from my grandmother as a kid.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...
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...
Hello forum! This is my first post on literally anything fish/aquascaping/tank related and I could use some criticism on how to better my tank visually and to make my dwarf gourami happier!
Tank has been cycling for at least a month and I just got the dwarf gourami 2 days ago and added I added...

Hello I have a few questions and problems I need desperate help with. I have been reading around forums and such lately trying to find answers I have picked up a good amount of info but I am still kinda stuck on some things that would be greatly appreciated if someone could help me out.
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...?
Nitrogen (N) 12.00%
Phosphoric Acid (P2O5) 4.00%
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...
Hi just joined, I love fish and plants. I have a betta named George, a bearded dragon named beard and a cat named cupid. I spend my days making them happy. I want to breed betta fish again because that was a joy lol. Right now im about to set up a 5 gal tank with plants and some shrimp :3 :fish:
Hi guys, like I mentioned in the title, I am a beginner to this whole aquarium thing and I was hoping you guys could help me out in identifying this plant I have in my betta bowl (the one on the left in the front with small leaves). Thanks a lot!
This shall be my spot for my journal. This will be my second planted tank, and I am super excited.

12L of Amazonia Aquasoil
Plants; (as of now, I am a plant noob)
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...
I just wanted to take a sec and introduce myself. Been checking out the resources here while setting up my first planted tank. Such a useful place, I'm very thankful to find it!
I have tons of questions and have been checking out the FAQs for help so far!
I hope to learn and...
Hello all, this is my first post on The Planted Tank. Long time lurker, first time poster. :hihi:
I have a currently unoccupied 2.5 gallon that I plan on making into a rimless iwagumi/heavily planted shrimp tank. I'd like advice on EVERYTHING:
Hi all, I've been lurking around here for about a week now doing research, and I still seem to be lost, so I guess I'll go ahead and ask some questions! :)
First, I'll start off with where I am now.

Ok, I'm a noob so this question may not even make sense, but please work with me here. I have a 20 gallon high . The lighting is T8 15W Halogen at 8000k(what does that even mean?) and 18". I think about 2-2.5W per gallon would be nice, so what way do you reccomend I go? Really good light...
Hey ya'll I need some advice from any "expert" Apon. growers. I grow one species of Apon. really well, it's a hybrid. But i want some good round info on propagating them, I have a 40 planted i usually grow the others in and in a week they are like 6 inches from bulb to plant, anyone got good...
I'm looking to get a "teacup" Retic. stingray for my 72 bowfront (and yes I know it will get bigger the 72 is not permanent for the ray or the Geo's). So i want to do the most research possible first, I'm at the end of my digging and about to decide. So any people with experience or inside tips...
I have a 6 gallon nano cube, with a missing pump.
im interested in setting it up as a planted tank... maybe a few shrimp or an interesting fish.
I am an experienced nano/pico reef keeper, that being said I dont know the first thing about freshwater... much less planted tanks.
I am fascinated...
