  1. General Planted Tank Discussion
    I'm setting up a Walstad 1.5 gallon bowl next weekend as I've got the half term week off (hooray) and I have this organic potting soil in my shed called BIOBIZZ All Mix Organic Soil that I bought off of Amazon a while ago. Here is its composition: 35% garden peat, 30% perlite, 20% Sphagnum peat...

    Hello greatly appreciate any advice or recommendations. I am new to this forum, but am starting to get the handle of it. I currently have a 5 gallon low tech medium planted tank with a 25 W heater and Tetra Whisper for airflow and water movement. I initially stocked it with 4 harlequin...
  3. Planted Nano Tanks
    I started a Pinterest board about a month ago as I started playing with the idea of starting an aquarium, something I've wanted to do since I was a kid. I fell in love with planted tanks, and then with the Walstad method as it fits into my philosophy of doing everything as naturally as possible...
  4. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I have a 3g dirted bowl, moderately planted, with a betta and a red cherry shrimp who seems to be cunning enough to escape said betta. The light is fairly high, and i'm adding a bit of DIY CO2, probably too much as the drop checker is on the yellow side. pH = 6.4, KH = 7, NH3/NH4+ = 0.1, NO2 =...

    So I ordered some plants that come in today, and want to combine them with a few I have... Ultimately I want to st up my 1 gallon cube with some organic miracle grow capped with small gravel, and planted with my (somehow still alive) Argentinian sword plant (the leaves are just starting to...
  8. Low Tech Forum
    Hey everyone, I'm fairly new to all of this stuff. So far I've managed to put together 4 different Walstad-method bowls for bettas, snails and ghost shrimp. I've recently started experimenting with threading java moss to stones, wood, etc. Basically, I'm graduating college next week and...
  9. Tank Journals
    [First let me apologize for subpar cellphone quality photos...My camera charger is lost in limbo :/] So after realizing that I seriously miss the betta I had for over a year before it fell prey to an over excited puppy knocking it's tank over while I was out, I started looking into doing a...
