  1. General Planted Tank Discussion
    I'm in the great position of having a decent budget to fix up, repair, rescape my existing 75 gallon tank. The Past Here's how it looked like in Oct 2018. This is the peak of the tank. I'd love to have this again. The crypt on the left is lush and full. I've started eradicating the val...
  2. Planted Nano Tanks
    Well, it's been a journey over the past six months. My beloved Fluval Spec V, home to one betta and possibly(?) some surviving shrimplets, has become...a mess. Time to dive in. So to speak. This is only my second tank ever, and I've been tinkering with it as I learn more and more about the...
  3. Tank Journals
    I decided to post this Journal prior to starting a rescape on my 75g. I will be breaking this tank down as soon as I have a place to put its tenants. I will post progress pictures as I go and will be looking for any pointers or help from anyone along the way. Background on this tank; I started...
  4. General Planted Tank Discussion
    I haven't been taking very good care of my 5.5g - dosing inconsistently, skipping feedings, letting it go for weeks without any water changes, etc. About two weeks ago I decided to get back on top of things. I did a large water change, cleaned out the filter, did a heavy trim, and got rid of a...
  5. Low Tech Forum
    Hi guys, I'm new to this forum, but have been reading a couple of threads online on rescaping an already established tank. Just would like to get some opinions from all you planted tank experts over here! I would like to rescape my current planted tank due to a crazy resistant BBA attack, throw...

    In my 5gal RCS tank, the pearlweed has currently taken over and is growing very tall all over the tank. It's more a jungle than anything else. Unfortunately, it is yellow at the bottom but green on the top. I suspect this is due to weak light, and have attempted to correct this. I have also...
  7. Aquascaping
    So I finally upgraded to CO2 in my 55 gal bowfront and put a whole bunch of new plants in. After letting it settle in for a few weeks, I did a big re-arrange and have found myself with a big open spot in front. I was thinking of putting Sp. Repens there, but maybe there's a better option...

  9. Aquascaping
    I am finally closer to creating just what I have been envisioning for my tank. :) (edit: The tank measures 48" x 17.75" x 24".) It's been in the works for a year! It started with a 30 gallon tank complete with dying plants and sick fish found on craigslist for $30. Of course at the time, I knew...
  10. Aquascaping
    I have rescaped a small 20 gallon tank before, but now I have a much larger tank with bigger fish. I am not sure how I should go about rescaping it. I need to add more substrate, and I understand that messing with substrate will kill off beneficial bacteria. So, I am thinking I need to do one...
  11. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hey all! I think the last time I did an update was maybe 3 months ago. My 55 gallon has come a long way since then. I've done two think trimmings and have taken advice about plant placement. I'm still slowly working towards that that symmetric clean plant layout and I think I just need to swap...
  12. General Planted Tank Discussion
    hi all! I just had a quick question about how to avoid or decrease ammonia spikes. I want to rescape my tank and move plants around, but I have live fauna and I am afraid they might die if I do a rescape and cause an ammonia spike. Any tips and tricks will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

  14. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I was in a process of rescapping my 9g tank so I have to empty out the water and take my CRS/CBS out along with all the plants. I put all the plants (floaters) and shrimps in a 1 quart cup and 3 of them die. What sucks was I saw it happening because before they die they short of flipped over...
  15. Substrate
    Hello everyone, im going to be changing my substrate from big blue gravel that's not very root friendly to some eco complete. What is the best way to go about this? I have a 46 gallon bow front with 40lbs of substrate in the bottom, the tank is fully established and has been for 6 months. Can I...

    For a while now I've wanted to redo my first tank using what I've learned since I started fiddling with plants in the aquarium, and this bank holiday weekend finally provided the opportunity. This is the new setup: Tank: 3' 180l Fluval Venezia Bowfront Filtration: Fluval 305 and Fluval U3...
