    Why are cardinal tetra rarely used in aquascaping?

    I think it's a combination of their aesthetic value, their perceived popularity and schooling behaviour. Aesthetic - Very high impact. Too high for many. Popular - Too popular for many. Schooling - They don't school when comfortable so not great for the that final photo unless you can 'scare'...

    Critique my aquascape Critique please. What is working and what isn't?

    What's the story you're trying to convey with the design? For me the whole design lacks real cohesion, with the lovely ornamental-style stems in the background contrasting excessively with the more diorama-style hardscape and carpeting plants. In my eye, it's almost a scape of two distinct...

    Why do we advise Newbies like me low tech

    These days I encourage beginners interested in aquascaping to stick with easy plants, low-moderate light and CO2 injection. This is a trifecta of guaranteed success in my experience! :D

    Oase BioMaster Thermo 600 - Filter Media Quantities help needed
