  2. Planted Nano Tanks
    So, I've never created a nano tank before, but my wife wanted me to set one up for her mother for Christmas. So, this will be a low-tech planted tank w/ internal sump. I'm almost finished building the tank itself and will be dirting and cycling this weekend. The overall tank itself is 14"W...
  3. Plants
    Found it partially submerged. Bacopa Monnieri is the closest match I've found. Also does anyone know what's the yellowish jelly like spot in the 2nd pic? Some sort of egg I guess? Found more of those on other leaves too. Higher res pics here: imgur.com/a/BbxmP

  5. Planted Nano Tanks

  10. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hello, I would like (in the near futur) to start a set-up inspired by the Everglades in Southern Florida. I have a couple questions. 1. Is there a portion of the everglades that's freshwater, if not, I can scrap that idea for now until I'm ready to start a saltwater set-up. 2. If there is...
