    Hi, Just wondering if anyone has a planted tank, and if so what plants do well? I'm interested in something more decorative, not like caulpera or mangoes, etc. Thanks Viv

    Hello everyone. I'm currently in Afghanistan, but looking forward to being back home in South Carolina soon. I've been doing freshwater tanks for years, but I'm setting up a saltwater DT when I get home. I'm looking forward to lurking and learning until then. I'm sure there will be tons of...

    hey guys I have 40 gallon planted tank and I would like to put in a sump system. I'm familiar with the requirements for the GPH etc, for marine systems, but I've never done one for a planted tank. What is a good size over flow box to use? How many GPH (approximately) should i be shooting for? I...

    I live in Florida and I collect and grow Red Mangrove seed pods for aquarium use. These plants do an excellent job of acting as filters in your aquarium or pond. I can ship rooted plants anywhere in the US; including Alaska and Hawaii. The price is $4 each for each healthy, rooted seedling...

    Ok, after 17 years doing salt, I have decided to try my hand at a planted aquarium and eventually adding discus. My tank is a 75 gal and I don't want it totally planted, but I want enough plants to make it natural looking. I am using my LED lights (dimmable) that were on my salt tank, so I can...

    Ive been wanting the look of macros in my display for quite a while and since my tank looks bare after losing most of my coral, I thought now would be a good time to give it a try. Currently I have caulerpa prolifera and Caulerpa racemosa peltata that I like the look of that's already growing...

    I've been trying to identify this wild seaweed or plant for the past day and I can't find any solid information on it. I pulled it in out of the Chesapeake bay yesterday and pretty much just want to know what it is and if it is safe or not to throw in my refugium. Thanks for any insight.

    Does anyone have any advice for mangroves? I have 4 of them, 1 with leaves, and 3 which have lost their leaves. One of the 3 which have lost its leaves has a small green stem growing out of the top. I was spraying the leaves off 3 times a week with freshwater before they fell off. The roots are...

    I've had this tank lightly planted for a while now, and I haven't paid much attention to it, as my 29g reef is getting lots of coral and such.I'd like to sort of redo this little tank.Right now all that's in here are a few mosquito fish, some of what petco calls mondo grass, and a few more...

    I want to keep algae alive in my sump, so it will better absorb waste material. But the problem is I ain't 100% sure on what light to get. I had this idea to use a reptile lamp with a full spectrum light-bulb. I heard this is good enough to keep Marijuana alive... Funny how I got to that. I was...

    Hiya! Very new to SW, but thanks to some other members here, I've got my rescued biocube8 almost done cycling! I was talking to a seller at LFS and he recommended that I get another few pounds of LR for the tank, and sold me this. I was curious about all the stuff growing on it, but he told...
