    Starting A 90 Gallon Custom Hillstream Aquarium

    All is good. I love floating plants in my aquariums, especially Frogbit. I even included it with my intial checklist of plants. Duckweed would be the only floating plant that has a chance.

    Starting A 90 Gallon Custom Hillstream Aquarium

    Floating plants aren't an option for this tank sadly. The amount of turbulence would destroy any floating plant. Dwarf baby tears might do okay because of the cooler temps but with the water being so oxygenated it won't grow much or at all. I have to use Ro water. My city's tapwater is...

    Is This Bba?

    Purchased some new plants today. One of them being a dwarf lily. I got home rinsed it really well. Removing any snail eggs I saw. I placed it in my isolation tank and noticed this. Is this Black beard algae or is this just the bulb pulling apart from a light scrubbing? Thanks in advance!
