    Creating my second attempt on Eco Sphere

    The first attempt lasted 3 months however some plants were not suitable in the environment and some were growing fine but isn't lavishly. :/ This is my second attempt on the same jar, this time added hydrilla water plant, anubias and some snails. I will top some food every once awhile. Still...

    Can anyone identify this white dust on anubias?

    Hi, I have a lot of tanks. All have been running fine for months. Some heavily planted. 2 planted tanks have just turned upside down and have no idea why. 1 had only green spot algae and I just removed the plant it was affecting before dosing with phosphate to fix this. The second tank had...

    Very bare 10g for male betta

    I feel like this tank is wicked bare, should I stick some gravel in there??? I don’t mind the soil personally I wanna see where the carpet heads off to. I don’t have a lot of experience with growing aquarium plants so I honestly have no idea what it’ll look like I just put stuff wherever I...

    Will it work?

    I was thinking of getting some slim posts (plastic or bamboo) to use to anchor a bunch of anubias and Java fern, see if I can't make it look like I have some leafy trees in my 55 gallon tank. I have tried some different stem plants (more than 120 stems over the last year, 75 of that in just...

    Don’t understand my tank….

    Hello everyone, I’ve had my 75 gallon planted tank for over 2 years now, and it feels like nothing really grows or does anything and I’m not sure why. There’s a fluval spectrum LED light meant for plants on about 10 hours a day, using NA Thrive once a week as a complete fertilizer which is...

    What am I doing wrong?!?!

    I have a 55 gallon aquarium kept at ~78-80 Degrees F on a 12 hour light cycle with multiple root tabs but no water fertilizer. The aquarium isn't fully cycled yet. My Duckweed and Anubias plants are doing great... but my Java Fern, Monte Carlo, and some other plant that I got at Petco are not...

    My tank has live plants in it now!

    I decided to add some live plants to my betta tank! I added the moss ball a few months ago and it's still healthy so I thought I might try my luck with a few others as well. I added a java fern and two anubias. I keep my LED light on for 10+ hours a day, is there anything else you guys recommend...

    Anubias help

    finally I got an Anubias. But I don't know the species. Any ideas? It has its emersed leaves on as it was grown in a tissue culture

    do they roots need to be above substrate?

    I just bought two new plants from PetSmart in those "pest free" containers since they seem to be the cleanest around here. 1. Narrow Leaf Java Fern and 2. Anubis Congensis As I'm reading right now it seems that both need to be attached to rocks/wood? I knew the regular Anubis (larger that I...

    Anubias and Java Fern holes in leaves?

    Wondering if you guys can help identify problems with my planted tank. Completely low tech, plants have always done well and Anubias even flowers occasionally. I have never dosed anything however my stocking level is probably about half what it used to be so maybe thats it? Pic of anubias...

    Plant help

    Hi, I have a 200litre aquarium with sufficient filtration in the form of the Jewel bioflow arrangement, and a Eheim 250 external filter, which I have plants in. Firstly I'm trying to bind some Anubis plants (I think) to some bog wood from my LFS. I've tied them down with cotton thread as...

    am I suppose to trim these roots?! It's a jungle

    This Anubis is attached to a lava rock (how I purchased it over a year ago). The root system has grown out of control but I've let it as I think it looks really neat and my tiny inhabitants seem to dig it. My question is am I harming it by letting it get this way? Am I suppose to be trimming...

    where do you guys/gals get your aquarium plants

    I'm looking to get some better suited plants (than what I currently have) for my 6 gallon fluval edge. Easy to maintain, I guess people call them "low tech" plants that don't require crazy lighting and supplements. Has anyone had any luck ordering on line and have they been ick free (no snails...
