wood

  1. Low Tech Forum
    Recently I moved houses and had to keep my wood and fish separate for almost 9 months. I decided to ask my dad to put the fish down for me since he lives in another house to my mother. One container seems okay, the plants seem alive, not well, but they aren't dead, there is white stuff on it...

    Hi Guys, I've bought some wood pieces with plants already growing on, did notice fluffy algae like thing on the leaves and wood, but thought thats probably normal, and they all seem to have it in the store, so i didn't question it. But then after reading a bit online about brush algae, i'm...

    If Home Depot type wood could serve the same function, that would open up a lot of creative possibilities.

    I'm going to homedepot tomorrow to pick out some 2x4 for a 40 breeder stand I will be constructing. This is my first time, and I really don't know anything about wood or wood types. Is there a rule I should go by? What should I ask for? I plan to ask the dude for at least grade 2, untreated...

    Hi everyone, I setup this 10 gallon tank about 2 weeks ago. I tied willow moss to the wood, placed in the tank and planted dwarf hairgrass and AR mini at the same time. I noticed white fuzzy growth on the wood that I had seen before in my other tank and thought it was just fungus that grows on...

    Hi guys! New here. Been a while since I had a planted tank, and having moved to the middle-east a year ago I thought it would be a while before I could get one. Turns out there's one decent store here that i've managed to get some stuff from. Having a custom shallow rimless tank made...

    New to using Root Wood for hardscape and running into an issue. I am letting the wood soak before it is used in the actual layout. A cloudy/white substance is starting to coat the wood. I have heard that this is a fungus that is in the wood and it will come off. Problem is that I need this...

    Hello friendly moss and other forrest plant experts! I am in a process of building 10 gallon paludarium/aquarium for the first time ever.. First idea was to build a paludarium to house my orchid collection, but I have soon realised that I'll need a much bigger tank.. in fact, few of them :) So...

    So I have been battling with my 55 gallon tank for 2 years now, and I'm finally at a point where I can invest some money and time into it. For a long time it seemed that just about everything I tried with this tank backfired, and I just gave up. I also contracted a staph infection back in...

    I am new to this forum and hope you might be able to help me. First off, I just purchased on Friday a new 75 gallon tank for freshwater cichlids. I took a 3 year hiatus from doing the aquarium thing and decided I needed to start this hobby up again. I have attached pics of my tank with the wood...

  16. Algae
    Ok, not sure what's up but wood is close to light source. Tank has been setup for a year or so but recently added driftwood and plants. Prior to the new items it had the large goldfish and some rocks from outside pond in it. Not sure about algae on back glass also but it's been there for awhile...

    http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/album.php?albumid=17090&pictureid=61442 Okay, so this is my 85 gallon tank. It is very much still a work in progress, and it is my first attempt at aquascaping. (If you've got to start somewhere, why not start out big? :wink: ) I was fortunate enough to find...

    So basically what the title asks, is the Carpenter version (not the regular stuff found at elementary school) of Elmers glue (for wood) work in an aquarium? Is it non toxic? Is it water soluble? What are other options for aquarium safe adhesives that will work to glue wood together?
  20. Aquascaping
    I've got two pieces of wood I'd like to put in my new 29g tank (still in the planning stage). Piece 1 is medium piece of manzanita driftwood I took out of an aquarium I dismantled over a year ago. I BLEACHed the wood to get rid of the algae (15 min soak in 10% solution followed by a few...
