    Dooa Shizuku setup 3 months in

    I’ve had this Dooa Shizuku setup for 3 months now, and I’m very pleased with how the plants are growing in. I attached some anubias to the substrate ball, and planted some Hydrocotyle into it. The Hydrocotyle is slowly starting to grow around the substrate ball, which is what I was hoping for!

    Anubias Flowering (out of the water)

    My anubias is flowering! The rhizome has just breached the water surface (the leaves escaped ages ago) so I wonder if that's the trigger. Or maybe it's just enjoying spring.

    New Pico coming soon Tank has been ordered tonight and should be here by next weekend. This one is going to be an Odd one indeed, don't think anyone on here has used this tank before for a nano/pico. The shape of this will make it challenging to scape and plant, but that is what appeals to me...

    Algae control organisms

    I have found guppies to be very good algae eaters. At least they did help me cleaning my anubias

    My anubias growing inside an enclosed terrarium

    It’s getting it’s white back now it’s emersed! Very pleased with it
  12. bettaguy

    If I buy from buceplant while in the US, can I bring them back to the UK?

    It says I can’t bring rhizome plants back from the US but it’s only really talking about outdoor plants that I’d be putting in the garden. Nothing about sterile tissue cultured anubias for a home aquarium. does anyone know the answer to this?

    Tiny anubias wabikusa in a glass dome

    You could argue it’s a terrarium because of the dome I guess. It’ll always be a wabikusa to me haha: it’s my favourite because it’s so simple and the rock has so much detail! I believe it’s a anubias nana and the rock is elephant skin rock.

    Does anyone know good sellers for 'rare'/unusual anubias?

    I've been looking for a while and i can find bucephalandra sellers throughout Europe but I've found very little when it comes to rare anubias sellers. I want things like true chili anubias and etc but I just find it hard to trust websites selling them way cheaper than you'd expect. I just know...

    I saw a post asking about the ADA terra base

    I saw a post talking about the ADA terra base so I thought I'd share mine which is freshly planted, this was the next day after being planted so it hasn't matured at all. The terra base itself is £30 but the glass is more. I don't believe the glass is needed though but it was for me to keep...

    James' 4ft Rainbow Refuge

    Hi all, A relative was going to bin this tank, so I took it on. Didn't want to spend too much money so built the stand out of concrete blocks and plywood. The sides and back were painted black apart from one chunk of the back pane for some reason, so I decided to paint that bit myself rather...

    Lazy moody Asian autumn ish

    This is my first rescape of a tank I set up in March 2015. It was my first tank for about 25 years! It was fairly successful, semi-low tech (daily liquid Co2, weekly complete ferts). This is what it looked like before I dismantled it. Onto the new scape, which is intended to be low tech...

    Is my DIY LED setup low/mid/high?

    I have a 40 liter tank. I made a DIY setup using three cheap GU10 LEDs from Ebay. Each bulb is supposed to have these characteristics: - cool/pure white 6000-6500K - 500-550 lumen - 6W I was under the impression that this light is more then adequate to grow plants. I though I have a medium to...

    Anubias renovation

    I recently got the load of Anubias and Microsorum from John S (thanks John!) At the moment, I've just got them floating in the tank on the landing (a-south-american-on-the-landing), but they need a bit of work. Is it just a case of snipping off any obviously dead, diseased or dying bits and...

    Anubias Nana Petite Brown/Dead Spots

    Hi, I just setup my tank and it is coming up to two weeks old. I have attached some Anubias Nana Petite and Bonsai to a piece of manzantia root. The Anubias Nana Petite looks like it maybe struggling. Nearly all of the flower stems have died of and I have just noticed that on one leaf there...
