  3. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Started a few posts lately to get back up to speed. So, about to get my first "big", 120p, tank and I will, of course, have to cycle it. I wanted to gauge the opinions of the good people on this site on the methods of cycling. First things first, it will be about fishless cycles only without...

    New to keeping aquarium plants. I've had these plants no problem for the past few months. Past few weeks. I've had to keep replacing them. The green one at the back (no idea of the name) grows thin and the leaves fall off. The bottom dies and then the whole plant does. java fern is spotty...

    I picked up 3 weather loaches for my 55 gallon planted tank. First 2 days everything is fine. 3rd day i notice one has possible fin rot (assuming it had it at the store.) I typically refuse chemicals in my tank and he is still alive today, yet in worse condition. (Lethargic and just floating...
