    Hello All, I have a 55 gallon planted tank that has been running without issue for the past 6 or so months. I recently came across the idea of hanging the roots of a terrestrial or semi-terrestrial plant into the water while allowing the majority of the plant to grow up and out of the aquarium...

Would I be able to add another...

    Hey everyone, hoping someone has an idea for a specific spot on my harsdcape. In the pic below, I currently have a Java fern (narrow mini) in the little bowl formed in the driftwood.

  6. 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...

    To get it out of the way, here are my parameters/stats. This is after I changed the tank on Tuesday, having added fertilizer Monday. I add Thrive S every Monday and Friday.

    Hello everyone, This is my first post and I am a newbie in the hobby of planted aquariums. I've had for 2 years some cryptocoryne and I've added a couple of days ago some monte carlo for carpeting and limnophila sessiliflora. I've also added a basic CO2 nano system from Tropica and some...

  13. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    I am setting up a new brackish tank for a figure 8 puffer, and plan on trying some plants. I plan to try a few of the faster growing plants first to see how they do and will acclimate them from freshwater to brackish over at least a week or two if not more. I love planted tanks, and while I know...
  14. General Planted Tank Discussion
    From what I've been told from family and friends vs this site, I'm unsure on what I need to do. For context, I have a 10gal. tank that has been set up for about 2 months. A month ago, I planted it and from what I can tell and see, the plants are healthy and growing. I have four baby black mollys...

    Hello, I've built a paludarium, which is tiny. The terrestrial areas are constantly covered in water, due to a waterfall and a small hose watering the other one. I plan on putting sphagnum moss on the land area and maybe planting a few carnivorous plants there. (Maybe some Sundews) I will also...
