    When I first started out I had only heard and seen pictures of amazing aquariums and aquascapes. I took home a 60p with just 3 big rocks, some fine gravel and a few java ferns expecting to make a great design like on the pictures. Obviously it didn't take long before I figured out that I was...
  14. General Planted Tank Discussion
    I don’t know what to do. My tank won’t fully cycle no matter what I do. The tank was set up for weeks before I put anything in there. I added food to start ammonia and added a ton of bacteria to get it started, but it just won’t work. Now I have 20 crs, 6 amanos in there, and some mystery and...

    So i finally decided to get back into the hobby. Bought myself a new filter, heater and gravel and kept some vallisneria from my dad's old tank. I've set everything up but the filter i got seems to have too strong of a flow maybe? I am concerned it is too strong for the plants. Any suggestions...

    A friend of mine moved provinces and it's incredibly hard to get simple plants, so I wanted to send some clippings of Moneywort to him. My moneywort is probably over 6 inches long because I've never trimmed them before, do, I just cut anywhere on the stem, for e.g the very middle of the stem, or...
