    Went On Vacation, Came Back To A Disaster

    I don't have fish currently, just a snail that hatched with one of my plants I ordered. I've done fish in the past, but this is my first crack at live plants with a co2 set up so I've been more focused on that. I'll probably start the cycle soon, I just wanted to make sure I wasn't going to kill...

    Went On Vacation, Came Back To A Disaster

    So I just got my plants in, thought I ordered a lot but I think I could have got more. But after some elbow grease the tank looks good again. I don't know anyone who I can get some filter media from, but I might make a trip to a LFS to see if they'll be willing to lend me some. Thanks again...

    Went On Vacation, Came Back To A Disaster

    Thanks, I'll clean out as much as possible and do a water change...Do you think this is caused by too much light? I'm running my lights on a timer, but they're only at 40% and blue is basically turned all the way down.

    Went On Vacation, Came Back To A Disaster

    Hey there, I had recently set up my planted tank and everything was looking great for the few days I had it running. (Dosing Co2 and running a Fluval Planted 3.0) I just got back from a week at the beach and my tank looks horrible. Based on my research, it looks like it may be covered in...

    Ammonia In Fresh Planted Tank?

    Nope, all of my equipment is brand new. I'm using BDBS as the sole substrate. I don't even own fish food yet as I wasn't on planning on adding any for at least another month. I bought the Malaysian driftwood dry from a LFS and ordered my plants from Aquarium Co-op. Only thing I've added is some...

    Ammonia In Fresh Planted Tank?

    Hey there, I finally got my tank setup and planted for now. It's been running for a couple days so far, and I took some water readings tonight and was kind of surprised to see an ammonia reading of 2ppm in my tests. Nitrates and Nitrites are reading 0. I haven't added anything to start a cycle...

    Is there a 3rd species I could add to round it off? Or should it just be the two?

    20 Gal Long Planted Community

    Hey there, sorry if this has been asked before, but I'm trying to put together a plan for a 20gallon planted community tank. I was originally going to go with a 40 breeder, but I think space in my living room is going to restrict that. I've had tanks in the past with Cichlids, but I want to try...
