    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, I haven't kept an aquarium in a while, but my bf wanted me to start one so I'm working on this one. I've never made a thread so I hope I uploaded the pictures correctly~ Anyways, wish me luck!:fish::fish::fish: Just a bunch of plants I got at Petsmart (Pico Rivera) and Tongs (Fountain...

    So I'd figure I'd share my first attempt at a planted tank. While I've had different fish tanks all my life, I decided to start this planted tank. Before I had an 55 Gal sand tank with Angels, Placos, Tiger Barbs, and gourami's. My buddy had a 125 Gal tank that he never cleaned and his wife...

    Ok so I have some java fern I bought last week, I'm not expecting it to miraculously go nuts on growth, but I'm curious how to encourage that lush bush look, simular to the photo for it in the plant profile section on this site: (disclaimer:photo not mine! (I wish it was) (C) in bottom left...

    I wanted to share my first wood working project, a stand for my 15g planted tank, made this over a couple weekends, I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.

    Wow, so, you have no idea how hard it is to get one of these in the UK, I eventually gave in and made a somewhat cheap deal with a contact my girlfriend has in the States in Marine depot. Anyway, always admired these tanks, and now I finally have one! So I'm going to be patient and take my...

    O.k, so I've recently joined this forum and have enjoyed reading many threads. (I've been visiting this forum for a year, just never joined). Now, I have a 20g tank that has been somewhat neglected? (hehe) All the plants were over grown making what is a 20g look like a 10g tank... (Did I...

    So this is my first post (hurray!). I have an extra 2g tank lying around my house expecting to be used and I thought, hey why not plant it? I've done some mild planting in my fish tanks, but I think that I want to go as full out as I possably can on it. There'll be no fish... At least I hope...

    So I planted my 46 gallon bowfront a week ago. 70% of the substrate is planted. I used crypts, java fern, hygrophila corymbosa compact, hydroctyle leucocephala, bacopa carolina, dwarf sag, jungle vallisneria, and large amount of ludwigia palistris. I plan on adding another form of hygro...

    Hello folks! I'm new to aquariums, and new to the forum. I recently moved into an apartment and inherited a 50 gallon tank (48x20x12 I think) with a stand, hood, new 3-stage Sandman pump, and some other stuff. I've never had an aquarium bigger than a fishbowl, so I'm a total beginner. What...
  14. Algae
    Well the title pretty much says it all but, I will go more in-depth about it. I have a 50 gallon flat back aquarium that has been running over a year and a half id say. Every time I try and grow plants in the aquarium the plants will become covered with string like algae once it reaches close...

    Is it possible to use a Metal Halide in a freshwater planted tank? I've decided I'm putting off setting up my saltwater tank until I have more time to devote to it. I'm going to be working and going to school full time next year so I fear that the tank will suffer for it so I'm waiting...
