Good evening all, first post here!
Inspired by YouTube videos, I’m having a crack at a low tech planted bowl.
I’m I think the soil in my area should be quite suitable and I fancy the idea of it so I’m approaching it as a bit of an experiment (but one which I hope will have a reasonable chance...
I’m new to the website and the world of Aquascaping and I wanted to share with you guys my new setup!
I’m very new to this so if you have any suggestions or things I could change, they would be very welcome! I’ve stated my specs below, I have been working with my local aquatic...
Just joined after George Farmer mentioned the forum in one of his videos.
I've got a pair of 30l Square Nano tanks that I'm intending to plant and keep a Betta & shrimp and either raspboras or tetras and shrimp.
They're currently in the kitchen as I try and get them cycled. I...
So I currently run an interpet trispec on my tank which is running co" and daily ferts. I want a warmer colour ( which ive been told i need more red LEDS) to make my colour plants pop a bit more.
If I was to add a cheap light for example fluval aquasky and set it to red, would this help with...
I am for 6months now into this hobby and i really loved it!
I like Natural planted tanks & Provide an ecosystem where plants and fish balance each other's needs. so learned about it and created
my planted tank. I use organic soil and gravel, for plants i picked alot of fast growing...
Hi all, been out of the planted aquarium hobby for a few years now and feel inspired to get back into it. I'd love a little planted tank between 40-60 litres next to my bed. Problem is, there are so many nano style tanks these days I don't know what to pick!
I've been looking at ones like the...
Im in the process of buying a new 150cm long tank. My previous one was also that size, it was custom built with a sump which I was very happy with.
Not sure whether to go down the sump route again for the new one or whether to use a canister filter. I like how everything is more accessible...
I would like to buy a professional scissor.
I live in Hungary. There is only one good place in this country, the Greenaqua.
I like these products from the shop:
I just created my tank last night using the Walstad method (I think).
First time doing this and I really hope my plants survive.
If they grow nicely I would like to add in some shrimp too.
Don't have a filter on it currently because my one has gone walkabouts - was planning on...
Had some tanks in the past but nothing for a long time.
Started a planted small tank using the Walstad method and hoping that it grows, eventually to add some shrimp too.
Any tips or things to look out for would be great!
Morning all, my first post on this forum as I'm struggling to get a clear answer whilst doing my 'google' research!
I've been running a couple of planted, 'low/ medium' tanks so far, a 46l and a 125l tropical. They have both seen good planting results with a seachem fluorite base on one and a...
Morning, I thought I'd start sharing my build today as my new tank is arriving. I have ordered a custom made 75gallon (300litre) 52inch long, 16 inch high, 22inch front to back (frag like) tank from prime aquariums w/ 80litre sump as an upgrade from my horrible 270litre curved front. The tank...
I am Richard a 23 year old tropical fish keeper from up north (West Yorkshire) and I have kept fish for around 3 years now.
I started out with two fancy goldfish and quickly turned my attention to tropical and planted tanks, and I now run a 72 litre planted tank with the hopes of...
I know I could post on a Betta forum, but I feel people on this forum have a pretty good understanding of how I think and the planted angle, rather than churning out stats about Betta fish haha.
I've been keeping fish for years, marine and tropical on and off, so I'm pretty versed with...

I'll be cycling my tank very shortly so i still have some time to decide...but I need some help from some wiser and more experienced fish keepers.
I'd like to set up an Amazon themed aquarium, I have a 92 long x 50 high x 36 deep cm aquarium and i'd like a fish to contrast a shoal of...
Just put up my first videos of my 70L Planted Tank with my new Corydoras Trilineatus (Three Lined Corys)
Really happy with the way they came out. More fish and plenty for videos still to come.
Let me know what you think!

2015 tanks are over (still have a final picture and video for post on Dark Land)!!!
Holidays are over… just like I read on Facebook today: “September is the Monday of the Year”
… so let’s start to work on something new.
For me it’s really something new: a Dutch Tank by the rules… or so i...
Just signed up, laying down my first post, and in need of help. I run a 90gal tank 48"Lx18"Dx24"H. Hooked up to it is a Rena filstar XP3 canister filter, semi-auto CO2 system, and then my light is a Fluval 32W Ultra light LED strip light.
I have a variety of plants requiring...
Name: The Green Stream
Setup Date: 13/03/2015
Description: The Green Stream was born as an idea a few months, the concept was to replicate the underwater image of a river bank with sand bed where the vegetation brings out the transition between the bed and the margin, which is the perspective in...
My Hemianthus cuba is getting yellow. After seeing the symptoms on the internet, I realized that may be lacking in nitrogen. I started last week a treatment (Seachem nitrogen) and the leaves are still yellow. I realized also that my staurogynes are with black and transparent spots...
This will be my first planted tank and I am looking for a suitable light to go above my lidless tank.
I am currently looking at a Wave Point 24" twin T5, however have not been able to find any reviews on it.
Will 2 T5 bulbs be enough to grow the Tropica 1-2 grow advanced plants?
Just introducing myself
I'm Craig from gillingham Kent and below is my tank
It is jewel vision 180 with a fluval led light
And fluval 306 external filter
Substrate is 18l Ada Amazonia soil and I have used aprox 6kg of slate from a local builders merchant
This is my lovely 8 day old 100L aquarium - my first attempt at a planted tank! I am extremely pleased with the result.
I had an order for a carpeting plant (Eleocharis sp. 'Mini'), which was due to arrive on the day that I started my aquarium, but it has been persistently delayed. Also with...
UP Aqua CO2 system for Charming Aquarium A149 | eBay
anyone know if this system is worth the money or have used this system before? Currently using an ISTA disposable can system and ill have to use that for the meantime as im currently upgrading my tank gradually as and when i can afford to...
So in my tank i had 4 cherry shrimps (one i thought was a crystal but his colour came in) and 1 blue rilli (a stowaway on so cabomba i had bought). In the tank i also have 4 assasin snails, 10 neon tetras, 3 panda corys and 3 dwarf otos. The other morning i saw the tail of one of my cherries...
So i started a tank 6 weeks ago. Its a 60l which is a little overstocked but i keep up with my water changes regularly and everything seems to be going well so far with an oversized HOB filter (not my ideal filter but it suits my needs and available space). I have 3 cherry shrimps, 4 assasin...
So i couldnt find anything on the forums already and ive only been here five minutes, but i was wondering if people would be happy sending any excess plants they have to people. My tank is only 6 weeks old so im in no position as yet but i know i will have some Cabomba i would be happy to send...
After reading a few journals on here and everyone sort of asking for more journals to be made, especially new tanks etc I thought id share my story and progress!
Im going to generalise the last year or so and get into more detail when the journal becomes more recent
OK so today i underwent the 1st stages of the change, i have emptied my tank and had a real good clean out this took nearly 4 hours lol, all algae etc has been removed. After this i have broken down my canister filter (fluval 405), removed all media and carbon etc and all compartments are now...
Ok so im new here i am actually a marine fish keeper, i have a nice reef setup and i am thinking of changing to a planted tank set up. I have been reading THIS and other forums exstensively, my tank is 180l and have lighting for a marine tank so ill switch out the bulbs for tropical...
following straight on from the brief 'Coastal Erosion' journal, i thought id better begin a new journal for the rescape.
After considering a hardscape only set up :eh: .... i came to my senses, and used the plants from coastal erosion to start the tank off. These needed adding to and...
As some of you may have noticed i have been pestering everyone for answers recently and i thought i would update everyone on whats going on!
So last week i had a delivery of my first 'proper' aquarium' i have a fluval edge but do not really consider it to be in the same league and will be...
