    Hi all, I'm new to planted tanks and have setup a low tech tank with a few easy to look after plants and fish. One of these plants is an Ambulia which seems to be growing well but doesn't look very nice because the tips have turned white, some with a brownish tinge. Some info about the tank...

    Hey guys! I've had blue leopard ramshorns in my 3 gal. betta tank for about half a year now, love the little dudes, but I recently changed the substrate from dirted Seachem-brand onyx sand to Fluval Stratum (mostly for the color and ease of planting) and their pretty shells have turned a chalky...
  3. Substrate
    Greetings All. I am new here and have been researching substrate for my future planted aquarium. It is a 125g and will be filled with tropical fish such as cardinals, rams, platy's etc. I would really like a white sand substrate but the Planted substrate I have found so far (Eco complete...

    So I noticed this white stuff growing on my driftwood while doing DSM. I actually started with water but I didn't plant my monte carlo that well and wanted to replant and DSM until I got a CO2 system. But I noticed this white stuff growing one day and today there is definitely more. Is this...

    Not much info on this plant for me to find. It seems to have a similar growth habit as Ludwigia inclinata var. verticillata 'Cuba, being a reluctant brancher, and that it needs to be top planted. would anybody know how to propagate this plant or at least encourage more branched growth? Thanks!
  7. Planted Nano Tanks
    wanted to play around with the theme of light and dark for this next piece. so i selected plants that would create an intense dark green background along with other plants that would "pop". so far i am pleased with the effect, but time will tell once when everything starts to grow in full force...

    I've had this 55g moderately planted tank with 2WPG and DIY co2 for over a year now. Recently I started seeing this little white balls floating on the surface of the tank. :confused1: They seem to clump together, all on the surface with nothing below it that I can see. Anyone have any idea what...
  11. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hey guys, Just curious but under my finnex fugeray my ghost shrimp seems to be milky white. (one seems like its having syptoms being lethargic so dosed IAL and melafix) however the other seems like that only under the bright finnex fugeray. Is this natural? Or is it infected too? Under stock...

    Hello Everyone, I recently added my two african dwarf frogs to my planted tank. The tank is fairly new but I have kept the frogs in a smaller tank with no filtration for many years so I figured I was safe. The new tank is a 10 gallon planted tank with eco complete as the substrate. After...
  13. Planted Nano Tanks
    Got these funny little white things swimming around in my tank (planted, 2 cherry, 1 sakura and 1 blue, some pond snails). Really really small at the moment, dart here and there really quickly. Too small to take a picture of. None of the shrimp have 'berried' yet, as far as I'm aware. We lost...
  14. Fish
    I'm not a big fan of bettas, but this beautiful specimen caught my eye. Saw it pop up on a FB post this evening and thought I'd share. Listed in the post as a "White Dragon King Crowntail"
  15. Tank Journals
    “Oasis of Saturnalia” I stumbled upon some videos on facebook about aquascaping and wow! I have played around with aquariums for a long time. This form of art has really changed my outlook on aquariums and my hobby. About three years ago I started using live plants in my aquariums but...
  16. Fish
    I was just going to turn off my betta's lights when i saw a cottony blob emerging from the side of his mouth. Im pretty sure its not fungus. He seemed really irritated by it and when it receeded into his mouth it moved in and out like with his opercular movements. Im kind of worried that he'll...

    As the title states, what is the white translucent things on my glass? They are soft, sways with the current. When I scrubbed them off, they return again. Eeeek!

    I have a 2.5 gallon planted nano and recently I started seeing these tiny white oval dots everywhere. They don't move and look like tiny sesame seeds. Maybe 1mm in length. They started out showing up mostly along the cracks in my driftwood but are now on some of my plants as well, and I can see...
  20. Algae
    There are white, mucus-like strands of something growing on my filter sponges and on my filter, itself. It thrives in areas of moving water. I'm also getting some serious algae growth. Is anybody familiar with these creatures? What are their names? Nitrates ~15-20ppm pH~ 6.6
