    There’s a local guy that’s been digging up all kinds of driftwood, ironwood, hardwoods, cave/cavern rocks (back when it wasn’t illegal to remove them**), I’m soaking these new pieces it is all oooold crepe myrtle and rocks from a local cavern and the huge one I got almost immediately creates...

    Any geology experts here? I am trying to help someone identify the rock at a specific timestamp in this video: They went rock collecting on the shore of Lake Champlain. Thanks!

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...
  12. 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 to a place near my house that has some good...
  13. 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...
