    My fishkeeping perspectives through time

    Thought it might be fun to do a gallery of the evolution of my tank(s) through time. I started here almost at the same time as I started into the hobby. I have gone from plastic ornaments to a high tech dirted tank since then and in large part it is due to my membership in this forum. Well that...

    What you do for work

    Did a quick search and didn't see anything come up that looked like this had been discussed before. I'm taking a quick break from shoveling out my boss's property; I work as an estate/property manager. I got to thinking, what do others on the forum do for work/ have as a career?

    Variegated water wisteria

    So, I picked some of this up. Inspite of having luck with some plants considered 'difficult' I've never had luck with Hygrophila difformis. But, having seen images of this online I just needed to try some. What's unusual, is that A. The newer leaves are staying thick instead of getting lacy...

    I'm back

    Hey all, Had a long hiatus. Got sick, moved, lost my favorite fish, and picked up a second job all at the same time. So I ended up ghosting the forums for a while. I'm back now. Considering a user name change as I no longer work the job in the same capacity that I took my original name from and...

    Am I The Only One That Does This?

    Am I the only one who occasionally searches craigslist for used tanks not to purchase but to see the ridiculous prices that people want for their old tanks? First there is the dollar per gallon thing which basically closes out anything under 55 gallon with pricing but beyond that there's the people...

    High Light And Co2 For Nano (7g)

    My girlfriend is setting up a 7g planted shrimp tank and has decided that I'm the "expert" on lighting and CO2 because I have a high tech 75 gallon. Problem is I have no experience with a tank that small... What are the forum favorites for high lighting in a nano? I use 2x Fluval 2.0 on my 75 gallon so...

    Plants That Need More Recognition

    Hey all, I think it would be fun/ useful to give some appreciation to plants that are under utilized in our community. So, outside of your typical anubias, java fern, dwarf lily but still pretty easy and not too expensive so that just about anyone could pick it up and start growing it but still...

    New Tank Diy Stand Height

    Well, got a nice deal on an 80 gallon shallow so it looks like I'll be upgrading from my 75 gallon. (75 is technically the max for my apartment but I don't think anyone's going to notice 5 gallons and technically this spreads the weight way more than the 75 due to the footprint.) 48"Lx24"Dx16"H is the new...

    Planted Tank Flowers

    I have been waiting a long time for something to happen and it finally has, so I want to share it with all of you. Long story short, I have always wanted my cardinal flower to flower for me as I love they way they look. I allowed a very long stem to grow up out of the water and it finally...

    Let's See What You Think

    So I have a plant that decided to give a try that I found in a local brook. Small, babbling, standard brook. The plant was both on the banks, and in what appeared to be permanent submersion spots. I am located in New England if that helps ID. I have a feeling I know what it is after doing some...

    Discuss The Tanks That You Only Have In Your Head

    Hey there all, Every one of us has a severe case of multi-tank syndrome but due to our living conditions, we can't all act on our addiction. My idea here, is to inquire into the tanks that are often on your mind but that due to life or living conditions, you cannot have. Let's stick to...

    Study Shows Fish Have Complex Personalities

    Fish have complex personalities research shows | Daily Mail Online Well, I would say that this study was a waste of their time. Any one of us on this forum could have told them that fish even within the same species have complex and unique personalities!
