    Hi everyone!:wavey: I've been looking at my SW setup and stand in the basement for a while now. I kept contemplating getting it back upstairs and just putting plants in it, with a water feature, but after looking at some of the planted tanks, I may just go that route. I know with my business...

    I should be moved in to a new place in Texas in next 30 days and oddly enough my biggest concern is how to finish the setup of my new 90G RR tank. It was originally slated for a high flow BB reef tank but since I had to get rid of all my marine livestock to make the move Ive been...

    Hello all! It strikes me that I haven't shared with TRT what I'm doing with tanks these days. I don't have reefs anymore (one day I may again), but I can't be without my tanks. I'm now running 3 Fresh water planted tanks. The first is my baby work tank. This little guy is 2 gallons and...
  7. Seahorses & Pipefish
    Hey Everyone, Over the past 6-8 months I have been working changing the theme of my aquarium. What used to be a reef has been dismantled and started over as a seahorse tank. What started as a simple concept has really evolved into an obsession. I have become extremely interested in macro algae...

    Hey there everyone, I just created a membership here looking to learn about marine tanks to help setup my first saltwater aquarium. Recently for my birthday I bought myself a 29 gallon tank and stand with plans to set up a planted freshwater tank. I have now decided to start my first...

    Hello everyone! I thought you might find this interesting. This is a link to a time lapse video I made of my 75G Freshwater Planted tank. These pictures were taken about 10 min apart over the time frame of about 1 month. Once I had all the images I put them together into this time lapse...
  12. Tank Specs
    Howdy all, I have fairly recently broken into saltwater, accidentally sooner than I had intended. I bought neritina for my brackish that did not appear to want to acclimate (tesellata, I believe), so I threw together a saltwater in a hurry. I've been keeping freshwater for years, and have been...

    So I'm setting up a 75 long for my GF. I just set up gravel filter and heater and added some flake food to start a fish less cycle. I will be adding safe start BB to expedite the process. I would like to aquascape but don't want to hassle with CO2 and fertilizer. Any tips on java fern/moss...

    Ok so i have a small 10 gallon that currently is a fish only with hornwart. But i'd really enjoy a planted tank with shrimp, as any shrimp really entertain me, hence why i have a 1:1 ratio of shrimp in my reef tank :rolleyes: So what type of supstrate should i get? A black dirt bottom is what...
  15. General Reef Discussion
    Hello everyone, I didn’t see a Newbie area so I hope I’m asking this in the right place (going to be a longish post). My fish keeping experience as the title says is with planted freshwater aquariums. Not even high-light pressurized CO2 setups, just low light Excel based ones. I am getting a...

    I already have a big reef in the living room to throw money into - so I decided I am going to change this biocube into a planted tank, with all of the plants I can collect from my boat, and mini fish with lots of little inverts and maybe a few very hardy softy frags. I am filling it now, I will...

    All of my inhabitants have finally made it back over to the 50. They were crowded into a 20H temporarily when we moved. Now I have this extra 20. I was thinking about setting up a freshwater planted tank. Does anyone have any experience with one of these?
