    Any geology experts here? I am trying to help someone identify the rock at a specific timestamp in this video: https://youtu.be/1pROwNXB_mk?t=581 They went rock collecting on the shore of Lake Champlain. Thanks!
  2. Equipment
    So I have a lot of time to think about aquariums but not much space to build one until after my wife and I buy a new house. This has lead me down several experimental rabbit holes as a fun way to pass the time. My latest thought is wondering if its possible to simulate the natural process of...

    As title states I'm looking for zebra rocks or other black and white banded rocks. Photos of actual rocks you'd sell me would be requested, if I want to blindly get some unseen rocks I'd buy them from petco..
  5. Substrate
    I'm thinking of starting a new shrimp tank for the shrimp that I want to selectively breed. I have a 50 gallon tank that has blue velvet shrimp, and I want to separate the non-culls so that I can reinforce the traits I want (blueness). My question is- has anyone tried using volcanic rocks as a...

    Greetings Illinoisians! I am in sarch of a new hardscape for my 29 planted. I am looking for some interesting stone. I have been searching for lace rock/dragon stone/ etc... I like the somewhat porous/crater look. However, I have been unable to track any down in my local area. I checked out...
  8. Plants
    I think the first one was not labelled correctly at my LFS. The second moss or algae grows only on that rock. At night it shrinks and has holes, then spreads out when the lights are on. Thank you.
  9. For Sale/Trade
    I have a new batch of Dragonstone. Best batch yet. Hurry and get some before it sells out!! My minimum is 1 large flat rate box at 20lbs which is perfect for a classic Iwagumi setup. If you need more you can always order another box! I do a mix of 2 large rocks, 1 medium-large rock, several...
  10. Aquascaping
    Is there anything special to do to rocks aside from letting them sit in hot water for a bit to make them aquarium safe? I'm setting up a 10G tank to attempt to breed some neo shrimp

    Hey, guys from TPT Forum! This is my first post here and English is not my first language, so I'm already asking for sorry if I do something wrong here. Now, let's go. I am setting up a new aquarium. It has 20 liters (aprox. 7 gallons) and I'm thinking about trying some iwagumi stuff. I have...
  12. The Lounge & Introductions
    Greetings, I wanted to share my 10 Gallon Reef Tank Live Rock setup. My setup is only 3 days old. You can see my dead rock in the background. I will be adding more dead rocks to be seeded and I am thinking of adding some zoanthid polyps, ricordea, mushrooms, frogspawn (euphyllia) as well as...

    Hey all, Since getting into planted tanks, I find myself always looking for interesting rocks: at the beach, on the highway, etc. I'd love to find a good source of rocks for a few iwagumi projects, but there is no way I'd pay to have ADA-style rocks shipped. So I'm wondering: Where does...

    Hello all! I am in the process of setting up a 7 gallon minibow planted tank. I am interested in some seiryu or similar type rocks as the title says. Smaller ones, and interesting shapes! Must be able to ship- thanks! Gvtv44
  16. General Planted Tank Discussion
    I have been looking all over my area for stone dealers and have finally found something. My only problem is that I have no clue as to what kind of rock would be safe for an aquarium. Here is a link http://www.schwakestone.com/stone/boulders.html#0 to a place near my house that has some good...
  17. Aquascaping
    I am wondering how to create a "hill" like effect with the substrate in my new tank. My old tank I just mounded the gravel petty well but that flatted itself out over time. I'm trying to avoid that in my new tank. Here are my questions: -I don't want to use rock to support the substrate as this...

  19. Aquascaping
    I have several tanks I plan to plant, but I'm not sure about the price or availability of rock or driftwood around here. I'm wondering if I could make some nice aquascapes without using any hardscape. The tanks sizes are: 10g (x3), standard 2.5g, Minibow 2.5g, and 55g. I may end up getting some...

    Ok so i was on a jobsite and during a dig they pulled up a few of these stones. they're incredible! they are essentially agate that fossilized seashells! agate is just quartz so it's completely safe for your aquarium, won't alter pH, etc.. So anyways i took some home, rented a huge tile saw and...
