    Hi Everyone! I am new member and would like to run my paludarium for vampire crabs by the community! This is my first paludarium and I used a tutorial online to build it inside of a 10 gallon using foam and aquarium-safe silicone. The filter is hidden in the back to create a waterfall in the...

    I have two 2.5 gal tanks with small single sponge filters. I’m planning to get a gang valve with 2 outputs so I can adjust the flow if needed but not have it beat up the air pump. My question is: what air pump do you recommend for me? Also, some people do not recommend a gang valve and just...

    I am a beginner looking for walstad set up suggestions for a 20 gallon long (30.3 x 12.5 x 12.8 inches) never used tank. My long term goal is to keep a small number of fish, shrimp or snails alive using the walstad method. I do not have much of a preference for what type(s) of animals are in...

    I've been kicking around the idea of black water build out. My thought have recently focused of some of the more banal aspects of the build out -- filters. I think I would go with a undersized canister filter (for that slow moving water) from the large brand name in the canister filter...

    I'm starting my first planted tank. I'm planning to use Eco Complete as my substrate. When should I add plants to my set up?
