    Nano Paludarium Attempt!

    Could someone help me decide what to buy please?

    My birthday is coming up soon, and I'd like to kindly ask family for a new light fixture. I'm currently lighting my 30"x15"x12" tank with a clamp CFL bulb haha I can see enough to look at the fish and my java fern survives but I'd like to try my second attempt at a planted tank. We're not...

    Lurker finally says hello!

    Hi everyone :) long time lurker, new poster. Thought I'd just give myself a quick introduction. Well, my name is Coral and I'm a student who recently got into fish keeping, much to my loan's discomfort haha. On a whim I went into a pet shop and fell in love with black moors, so I went home and...
