  1. Aquascaping
    Hi there, I've been doing some research on this forum but haven't really found what I wanted. I'm rescaping my tank (ADA 90p) and this time I'm going for a big slope on the right with a big piece of driftwood that's gonna be partly poking out of the water. I would like to put plants on that part...
  2. Tank Journals
    Hi all! Starting a journal on our new 150G planted livestock container I setup for wintering our goldfish and turtle. A little backstory, this summer we moved into a new house that came with a little pond and stream water feature. This worked out really nice as our turtle was starting to...

    I am wanting to make a mini pond in an extra tank I have. Anyone know of any good low tech plants for something like this? What about animals for it? Anyone have any pictures of their mini ponds?

    The only cost is shipping at $7.15. I have MTS (not as many), pond snails (many, large and small), Ramshorns (many, large and small). I'm only wanting to send them to one person, so if there's one person who needs a lot of snails, that would be great. I have 16 large size Ramshorns from my big...

    Hi! I have started a new planted tank that I am going to try and keep plankton (daphnia, copepods, hydra, etc...) in, in a long-term effort to provide live food for some fish. I have already put a lot of thought and effort into keeping these critters alive, by providing ample separated hiding...

    Hi everyone this is my first post. I've got an idea for a project, and I'm not sure how crazy it is. I'd like to use this copper planter and glass canister to create a patio pond. The 1 cup measuring cup is just there to help with size referencing. The planter is 15" high and holds approximately...

    So I've got my hands on a 6ft x 3ft x 3ft aquarium. I'm thinking of a garden project as the size has restricted indoor use. I was thinking of putting some small goldfish and koi (I work for an aquatic retailers with a pond holding 300+ koi so I can shift them when size is too big). What my...

    Was curious if anyone else is doing anything like this. I built a 250g-ish container pond out of cinder blocks, ended up halving two ibc totes and placing them around it. 30g barrel filter in the center, 18w UV, 1350gph pump, and pressurized co2. It's still a work in progress. I managed to...
  16. General Planted Tank Discussion
    What are these things? I'm thinking Scuds or some type of amphipod, but I've never seen one with the hairs/spikes on it. I got them from a local pond, hoping to catch some daphnia. If these are scuds, I may have found a new food source. Here's a video; Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

In the meantime while his new tank is settling and cycling I decided to set up a "micro pond"...

    I have a 100 container pond with a 250gph pump that I'd like to add a filter. Not sure between a waterfall box with media, a gravity filter (tetra pf1), Pondmaster Compact Pressurized Filters, or an external canister like a sunsun? I'd like a waterfall anyway but wonder if it's enough bio...
