    Found One of my Cories Dead but he looks discolored

    Not sure why or how my cory died but I found him because I couldn't find all 5 of them when eating. He looks white I don't know why this is or what happened to him to make him look this way or how he died. Any help would be very nice. Also found an empty snail shell next to him don't know if it...

    First Aquascape! Looking for advice on the plants I want to get!

    Thank you for the advice! I think I’m still going to do soil because there are just too many benefits in my eyes. Plus as a biology/ecology guy it is too cool not to have a ecological system in my own tank! I have found that there are a few ways of treating soils to get around the extended...

    Ok sadly you guys are right. I don’t think I can do Corys anymore because they need the sand. Very sad as they are cute but I will keep looking to see what fish would do best. This means snails and shrimp for my clean up crew. For all those interested, fine sand will 1) not let the soil breathe...

    I got this one because people said it was high quality and worked very well. I was thinking about getting a cheaper light but most of the reviews say that after 6 months to a year they have to buy another light because the LEDs have given out. If this one doesn’t work out I will try your light...

    Ok, I ordered this light instead because it should be able to give the amount of light I am looking for! https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00C7OTE0O/?tag=ff0d01-20

    I only bought the light 2 weeks ago now so I think I might take it back to the LFS and get a more suitable light for how many plants I'm going to have. Also, in a Walstad tank am I supposed to have a filter like a bubbler or not? Your axolotl is so great absolutely love it, may have to get one...

    Yes! Just got back from running errands after work. Here is a picture of the box, but it is an 18 in, T8 spectrum, 15 watt light. Also, if those are your axolotls they are very cool! I was looking into those a bit because they are so adorable and quirky.

    I was going to buy the organic choice miracle grow and mineralize the soil so that the organic compounds turn into humus. As long as it was organic soil with no added fertilizers and the organic compounds such as manure have been dealt with then it works. Problem is Miracle Grow Organic Choice...

    Hello, all I'm very excited to start aquascaping and have a 10-gallon tank that is brand new! I have a list of plants that I was looking at getting and was wondering if everyone could look to see if these plants would go well together. I plan on planting these guys on Miracle grow organic soil...
