    Hello everyone! I used to peruse the site way back when I was in highschool and had a super minimal budget, now I've got a big boy job (science teacher!) and can finally afford to spend some serious money on a tank. I've been keeping fish since I was 13 when I made the mistake of getting into...

    Hi everyone so I have these 2 African dwarf frogs for about a year now they are great little guys love them to death. So the other day I walked past the tank and I noticed one frog essentially body slamming the other while in a full Nelson. They eventually let go of each other and are just...

    I recently set up a 20 gal tank with substrate and a few plants attached to driftwood. It’s been about 2-3 weeks now and I just noticed snails in my tank!! I’m still working on cycling so the conditions aren’t perfect (no fish yet, just plants/driftwood/water/and now snails). I’m not sure what...

    Alright, I am absolutely panicking! We have had a 180 gallon well planted river bottom tank for two years. In this tank we have two plecos, a pictus cat, 6 mystery snails, around 20 shrimp, 4 dwarf frogs, 2 gouramis and 2 white skirt tetra. Everything in the tank is at least over a year old. We...

    Hello, my name is Cam and I'm excited to share my journey with you here. Let me give you a little background. I haven't been an aquarist for about ten years. In middle and high school I was really into reef tanks. I had a beautiful nano reef that I had to break down and sell before going to...

    I have a 55 gallon planted tank that currently holds 1 juvenile firemouth (4" or so) and 10 mid size tiger barbs. I know they will all grow a bit more, but I still think the tank look pretty empty, as they all stick together and towards the bottom. Question is, what else could I add? I like the...
  11. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hello so I'm getting back into the hobby. I've previously had nano reef tanks and african cichlid tanks. Both were great but, salt water was too costly and too much work and african cichlids required more tank then I have room for, thus I landed on setting up a 30 gallon community tank. Going to...

    Hi everyone! I am new to this forum, and fairly new to aquariums, fish and aquarium plants. I decided to start this tank journal to document the ups and downs of my tank, and hopefully get some help and advice from all you smart people! I want to start by saying that I didn't choose my current...

    Hi all. I need help with picking new lights for planted tank. I've been using two 165 watt grow lights on my 46 gallon deep bow-front heavily planted tank for a while now. The results are excellent. Daily trimmings are required, and fast growing plants like Hornwort grow 5 to 6 inches every...
