    I'll probably try a few different things and at some point, I'll hopefully get it to a point where it doesn't look like a landfill Thanks!

    I will eventually have shrimp and snails in the tank, but I'd really like to do my best to get most of the dead plant matter out of the tank before I do any restocking. I do not currently have any root tabs since I had never gotten any heavy root feeders, which is why I will buy some once I...

    I've been thinking I may have to do that since nothing else seems to be working. Would it be a problem though since it's Eco-complete since I don't want to get rid of all of the nutrients for the plants?

    Thank you, I hope it goes well this time as well. The biggest struggle will be trying to get rid of all the dead plant matter that always evades the syphon and filter. I don't plan to use more than half the dose recommended since I will have inverts and from what I've read, it can easily be deadly.

    I gave all of the plants quite some time before I started throwing them away except for the ones that were completely gone within a week like the Vals. Just quite a bit of misfortune I guess. All three are pretty close to me, so I don't mind browsing all three. Thanks for your help!

    1) I bought from bamaplants. Their customer service through email was incredible in figuring out a time to ship that I would be able to get it from the front door and which plants to get and whatnot, but in the end, I guess something went wrong since it had snowed a few days before (even though...

    Yeah! I love the look of water wisteria, which is why I ordered it, although I didn't end up with it unfortunately because of that mystery plant. Although, I wondered if it might have not been grown submerged so it had a different look. Not sure though. Also, I have an anubias coffeefolia, and...

    Exactly what I was looking to go for! I'm not a fan of keeping the clay pot in the 20. Thanks!

    Bump. Anyone have ideas on what I could do in terms of Aquascaping?

    Long story short, I ordered plants online in March and most of them died in both tank and on top of that, my fish started dying for an unknown reason. I would've fixed this a long time ago, but as a broke high school student, I had already spent all of my money to get the plants, lights...

    Betta and inverts in 20 gallon?

    Thanks for the reply! I've thought about that as well, but I don't think I would want more than one since you can sometimes run into problems with aggression between the puffers and I've read that they're difficult to sex when you buy them. I think I might just buy a 2.5 and breed ramshorn...

    Betta and inverts in 20 gallon?

    So I finally found something that really peaked my interest in restocking my 20 gallon high and would like some opinions on the amount of stocking for inverts and information on the inverts themselves if anyone has experience. After a disease wiped out my community, I realized I really want a...

    Need some general help...

    I've taken a look at some of the options out there to see if it's possible to have a pair of a couple of different species, but I'll have to do some heavy duty research to find out the compatibility and all of that, but hopefully I find something. Thank you!

    Need some general help...

    Thanks for all the great info! It's been about 3 months or so since I've gotten all the plants and whatnot and I for sure won't get any more fish for a little while to see if I can fix this problem. My tank is not in direct sunlight, but my light is a 24/7 light so it's always on, just not the...
