  1. Aquascaping
    Hello, I am new to aquascaping and would love any tips or advice! Anyways, I was purchased Flourite Black Sand (pic attached) and set it up in my 10 gal tank. I was thinking of starting off with some java fern and anubis plants since those are easy to take care of (of what I heard). How do I...

    I have some bacopa stems in my tank. They keep floating up. How can I plant them so that they dont float up?
  3. Substrate
    Has anyone tried planting aquatic plants using garden start pellets and stuffing that into the substrate? Something like this: http://i00.i.aliimg.com/wsphoto/v0/1946340822_3/Free-Shipping-50-Count-38mm-Jiffy-Peat-Pellets-Seed-Starting-Plugs-Nursery-Pots-Flower-Pots-Planters.jpg sorry if this...
  4. General Planted Tank Discussion
    hello PTF! I'm starting my first planted tank. A 10 gal I plan on putting cherry shrimp in. I bought a Marineland Double Bright LED light and am worried that it will not be enough to use a DIY CO2 system with like I had planned on. I can easily supplement with a painters light but would be...

    First time planting glossostigma and I am looking for some feedback. I have broken it up into individuals stems. It's a bit leggy which I'm assuming is the result of being grown emersed. Should I let it root before before trimming it down to smaller stems? I also read somewhere of a planting...

    http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/pHosting.php?do=show&type=f&id=42058&title=20131114_2011241c.jpg Hello everyone, real quick question. I recently got my first fish tank and my friend found a great anubias nana plant for pretty cheap. I don't know much about planting and have looked for some...
  7. Substrate
    Hello All, I currently have a 10G tank that I'm using to grow plants (new to the plant part of this hobby). I used soil and then topped it off with play sand. I put Water wisteria in the tank and planted it. The roots grabbed hold fairly quickly and today when I up-rooted one, I ended up...

    I have a bunch of lacy java fern tied onto lava rocks in a tank. They're new enough that I doubt they've had time for the roots to hook into the rocks yet. Now I'd like to get some moss over the rocks, too. Do I need to untie the ferns and put the moss down first, or can I just tie the moss over...
  9. Equipment
    I've got one 24" tall tank, and I'm setting up a second soon. I did measurements, and there's no way with my short arms and tall stands that I can reach anywhere near the bottom of the tanks, and I need to start planting soon. I've seen 9-12" scissors and 24" complete kits on ebay, the...
  10. General Planted Tank Discussion
    So I want to know what are your mishaps with plants or hardscape errors. For me planting dwarf hair grass has always been a nightmare. When I get a pot or package of it, Im never too sure if im sectioning it off correctly, seems like I'm destroying the plant. Planting it was even worse, even...
  11. Plants
    I've gotten a lot of good information from this forum over the past year or so that I've re-entered the hobby. Since this has been my first venture into live plants it's been particularly helpful. I've run across a trick, and wanted to give back a bit by sharing it. I haven't seen this...
