In my previous tanks, plants I've had success with are:
-Ludwigia inclinata cuba
-Dwarf sag (I hate this one)...

I have never kept a planted tank before but they always inspired me a lot. The main reason of it the availability of resources. Some mandatory things required for good planted tanks (as i've read on multiple forums) are not easily available in my country. Now, cutting the long story...

We can be very disciplined when it comes to tank maintenance and sometimes we are unable to maintain the routines for some reason. I was unfortunately out of town due to the corona pandemic and came back to my tank which needed a good maintenance.
Heres how I handle it!

So I thought I would share on my approach to setting up an aquascape.
I tend to have a spur of the moment inspirational ideas. These ideas begin with seeing other people's work and finding my own twist to the idea. I think it is really important to not copy someone's scape exactly but to...
I restarted my 20 gallon tank with ADA Amazonia soil and CO2(Consant power outages last summer forced me to tear it down). I never had problems before cycling my tank but I am afraid the ADA is causing me a massive headache. After a little over a month my ammonia levels have...
