    Hello everyone, a pleasure to write here in such an honest and professional forum. I already have 26 years in the hobby and I currently have an aquaterrarium of 150 l with Bucephalandras mini coin and brownie ghost. In a nutshell the Buces mini's I love them.

    Best regards;)

    Hi all,

    Decided to make an account to talk about plants in more detail and ask questions about my own tank, as I am new to the planted tank scene. Currently running a 5 gallon tank, with a betta and a few small plants. Looking forward to seeing how this turns out! Might start a journal!

    Greetings from Canada!

    I started my first planted tank in October of 2018. It is a 75 gallon, medium-high light with CO2 injection via reactor. I currently stock some cardinal tetra, emperor tetras, angel fish, bristlenose pleco, and flying silver fox. Recently started to experience some terrible blooms (I may have found the cause, thanks barrreport!), and will begin a large scale overhaul of things. If I can find the time, I'll try to start a journal detailing the quest to find that balance.

    Greetings all.

    I have a newly setup 40 gallon with many donated plant species from a fellow enthusiast.

    Dosing fertilizers every 4 days, and have a 20lb Co2 cylinder with a DIY reactor maintaining about 30ppm.

    Lighting is a DIY LED system with a Storm controller and mostly full spectrum. I also have a few reds and blues mixed in.

    Livestock consists of 7 black neon tetras, 2 common core cats (can't remember the species name at the moment), 3 tiger barbs, and 3 amano shrimp.

    Apologies for the cell phone photo, all I have at the moment. 20190301_164406.jpg 20190301_164406.jpg

    Hi,

    I'm a semi-noob aquascaper returning to the hobby after nearly a decade. Hopefully this forum is going to be insightful and also help me trade and procure aquascaping goodies.

    Hi everyone. Very glad to be here. I've been in the hobby for a while, but recently set up a new 16 gallon cube after an almost 15 year break. I would describe it as medium light with DIY CO2. UNS 40C tank with UNS controsoil, Seiryu stone hardscape. Growing HC as carpet in front with some Eleocharis, Hydrocotyle, and Alternathera. No fish or shrimp in the tank but hope to populate in the next couple of weeks.

    Hi,
    My name is Simon Yee from Klang, Malaysia
    I have been doing planted tank since 6 years ago.
    Sound like long time ago huh?
    I have a 2 feet tank, using Co2 tank, without refrigeration unit and only CPU fan.
    With Adana Amazonian soil, and a normal aquarium led lights.
    I am trying to carpet the tank with HC.
    Any ideas?

    Hi everyone! In a couple months in newbie with a 75 gallon heavily planted tank that I'm struggling to balance. I have many tropical fish from bosemani to harlequins to corys and some twigs and a calico pleco.

    I am running pressurized co2, dosing 3/4th EI, weekly 50% WC, and have 2 fluval 3.0s running at 80% for 8 hours.

    I will be posting a different thread later but wanted to thank you guys for alot of the information I've been able to read up on prior to starting..

    Hi Im cesar. I'm new to aquascaping. my 3-ft silver arowanas (11 years old) just died recently and left my 140-gallon tank lonely (84" x 20" x 20"). Im planning to setup a low-tech planted tank (preferably no CO2). I don't know how to start... Im still gathering info and the more info i get the more confused i become :confused::p:confused:... Thanks for this forum for keeping my hopes high. IMG_20170122_081445.jpg

    I'm just getting started again with planted tanks after a 10 year break. Before my move to florida 10 years ago I had 3 planted tanks, several fish-only tanks and a few dozen small tanks for breeding killifish. When I arrived here I had a 180g reef aquarium but ultimately gave that up to make room for a beer kegerator (priorities in a small house). My current tank is a 40B with pool filter sand substrate. The light is a Beamswork 6500k DA 36" LED light. I'm running a 10g wet/dry and pressurized CO2. The tank is still cycling and the plantings are sparse but ultimately the goal is to have a pair (or 2) of German blue rams (a fish I had as a kid and adore) in a moderately/heavily planted tank. I'll add pictures and start a thread once it's worth taking a picture of.
