Hello, I have had a weblike mold creeping over the Ada aquasoil which has killed most of the plants (to much misting) , I have removed the plants now my question is what can I do if I want to replant the aqaurium? I would not really like to remove the substrate and rocks ruin the scape
I’m been attempting to grow Utricularia graminifolia as a carpet plant in an 15 gallon iwagumi set up. This led me to do an online search to see what conditions have worked for others. In addition to the usual specialty web sites I looked at various blogs as well. So what follows is the progress...
I'd like to get opinions on this method of adapting plants to life underwater after a dry start.
What are your experiences with plants adapting after dry start method?
Specifically with Dwarf Hairgrass (acicularis eleocharis sp. mini), anubias, and Ludwigia Mini Super Red. Or otherwise, has...
I'm going to assume based on the members map I'm not the only person from the North East, anyway I've always used UKAPS for things like finding reviews and information but finally decided to join and hopefully learn and share my own wisdom.
I've been plantkeeping for around a year, and I'm...

Hey ladies and gents,
I have been out of the hobby for about 2 years now and have decided to jump back in! This build will eventually become a fully planted tank hopefully home to some form of dwarf cichlid. This time I thought I would try out the dry start method and see if I can get my moss...
I have been away from the hobby for a number of years, after a moving house, as it just wasn’t suitable to set up my old tank, so reluctantly had to get rid of my old tank and all own old equipment.
Following a recent change in my personal life, I needed to do something that...

I started a small 30x30x25 cube (dry start method) with HCC and everything was fine.
But the HCC is now becoming yellow or brown, see the picture, and i don't know whats wrong.

This is probably the best spot on the web for planted tank discussions with most people eager to help us newbies out.
I had a thought and wanted UKAPS to help me out. I am planning to DSM HC for my 34g tank(36x12x18). I would carry on with the DSM till I have a desired carpet and...

This is something I've been wanting to do for quite a while now, but not had the stones to make the steps - I've tried all sorts with varying degrees of success, but have recently found some miniature dry stone thats meant to build model walls etc from (I'm sad I know)...
I guess the idea of...
Hi guys and girls!
Like the topic says, I'm just after a few tips using the dry start method as I'd like to have a go at growing a carpet of HC.
My current attempt at growing HC submersed has worked out quite well. Around 6 months ago I planted it stem by stem then flooded the tank straight...
This is going to be my first proper attempt at an 'aqua scape '. My previous set ups mainly consisted of low light plants which looked like a mess so want something with a little bit more work.
I am planning to plant a DSM 2 weeks today but there's a few things I need to query etc.
I'm really excited to be aquascaping again for the first time since May last year.
I have a TMC Signature 60x45x30cm (clear silicone) with gloss white cabinet. I need to cut out a half moon in the cabinet side for the filter hoses because unfortunately they're not pre-cut. I did...

I'm really interested in trying out the dry start method (DSM), as discussed a few years ago by Tom Barr...
