    Hi guys, First time poster, long time reader. Anyway, I just got a new 120L/30gallon tank and I used the canister filter from my old tank. It's a 3 tray filter with minimal mechanical media at the bottom and top. The rest is filled with Seachem Matrix and bio balls. I cleaned the mechanical...

    I really like the way saltwater tanks look, specifically ones with macros. But, I know from experience that they are more work and maintenance than freshwater (even when kept simple). So, I'm looking to make a freshwater tank that looks like it's saltwater. I also want it to be a Walstad tank...

    I have a question that’s been irritating me for about two weeks now. Everything was going great and my mermaid weed was growing like crazy but about two weeks ago I’ve noticed parts of the stem Turing black and eventually falling off, especially on the new baby stems growing in. Has anyone ever...

    Hey! So once again I’m coming to you all for some help! I picked up this plant about a month ago from a LFS and they said they didn’t know what it was. I decided to try to “save it” after it had turned brown in their aquarium. I’ve got several other plants that are thriving but the only growth...

    Hey! First off I just recently got into planted aquariums and decided to plant mine a month ago to see if I can get it figured out before setting up my new 75 gallon tank. I’ve had extraordinary help from all of you on this page and greatly appreciate it! Now for my question, I’ve had this plant...
  8. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    It’s sounds contradictory since it removes both solid and non solid waste, but I thought I heard it’s a lot better than carbon and does not remove certain fertilizers (iron pops to mind, KG etc) let me know your thoughts

    Does anyone in the STL area want some extra myriophyllum heterophyllum? It's the red variety. I received a ton of it for a small tank. Need to get the remaining stems off my kitchen counter, so you would need to pick up this weekend. I'm in Wildwood.

    As the title says - can I purchase aquarium plants and store them in a container of water for a couple of weeks before planting? I’m currently in the middle of a DSM so I’m not ready to plant epiphytes yet, but a supplier I’ve been watching has just restocked some plants I want and I’m afraid...

    Hi everyone, I'm wondering why as my plants grow, the older growth turns dark brown but the new growth is light green. I want to reduce or eliminate the amount of dark brown growth from my plants. I am currently running a CO2 system at about 1.5 bps and I have a Beamworks DA FSPEC light 10000K...
  17. Low Tech Forum
    I'm going to be setting up a 5 gallon aquarium for my grandmother soon, and I'm wanting to stick to something relatively low-tech. I was thinking about maybe a moss and crypt-only aquarium? Or some other type of hardy, easy plant that has a lot of varieties but keeps a pretty similar look...

    I'm just getting back into the hobby after about a 2/3 year hiatus...is it just me or has the price of plants exploded in that time? It seems like plant prices have doubled from the last time I setup a tank. Am I imagining this? If not, did one or a multitude of suppliers disappear from the...

    So, I'm new to using CO2 in my aquarium. I have a Green Leaf Aquatics system with a paintball cannister set up and running successfully with all the important parts, including a solenoid. Right now, both my lights and the solenoid are plugged into a timer to run 8 hours a day. I've read that the...

    Hey there.... Thanks for checking the thread =) I need to take a weed whacker to the Java Moss in my tropical tank. Seems like a shame to just toss the stuff when I know many people have shrimp tanks and other setups that would benefit from it. For sale.... Enough Java Moss to fill a 2-3...
