    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...

    For my birthday I was lucky enough to receive an ADA 60f and the kit to go along with it. I'll be putting a lot of my savings into this project too. For hardscape, I'm using 11kg of Frodo Stone Tank: ADA 60f Substrate: ADA Aquasoil Powder Type (3L and 9L bag) Lava Rock underneath Lighting...

    Hello again everyone, Some of you may recall my recent shallow 80 gallon aquarium journal I had on here and UKAPS, under "Green Shallows." As with many interests, hobbies come and go- and while planted aquariums certainly aren't gone for me, I felt the desire to downsize my commitment to the...

    I’ve got a shallow tank (8 inches depth) that I want to convert to a blackwater biotope, for less maintenance and more so for a change. I will have some frogbit or a similar floater on top with white sand, manzanita, and some oak leaves I’ve collected from outside. Maybe a HOB filter with...

  6. Fish
    Hey all, I am building a 12 gallon long acrylic tank (42L x 10D x 7H). I plan on doing a fair amount of planting with short plants, but I'm wondering if there are certain species of fish that I should stock this tank with that will not mind the fact that it is only 7" tall. Perhaps fish that do...

    I started this tank awhile ago but forgot to start a journal here... Feb 2016 Well one year into planted tanks, I felt that I had to build a riparium after seeing some spectacular examples over the years by people on both sides of the pond... My first attempt has been very successful and has...

    So, long story short. Wanting to make a carpet out of the even tinier version of the dwarf hairgrass on my new 25cm cube. The substrate is ADA Amazonia and is sloped from the back where the shallowest of it is 1.5cm. Do you think I could make a carpet in such a shallow substrate? I'd rather save...
  10. Planted Nano Tanks
    Hello, I recently was able to snag some plate glass for free. 4 pieces of 6mm that are 8" x 32". 2 pieces of 10mm that are 12" x 30". So obviously, it's gonna be quite a shallow and long tank. I was thinking maybe a 8" height x 30" width x 12" deep aquarium which is roughly 12 gallons. It...

I currently...
  14. Tank Journals
    Hey all, decided it would be a good idea, probably more so for me than anyone, to make a tank journal for my first ever planted freshwater tank. I'll say now, you can skip this paragraph if you don't like backstories. Pretty much, I've never been into fish, ever. I got my job at petsmart...
