    A few months back I had white little beads appear on my driftwood, I took it out and it now won’t stop growing around the tank, on ornaments and my live plants. Please can someone tell me what this is and how to get rid of it! Thanks!

    Unidentified Worm-Looking Creatures in Tank

    I wasn’t really sure where to post this, but I just found some white worm-looking creatures on the glass of my 10 gallon. I’m not sure whether or not I should be concerned, but I thought I would ask if anyone is able to identify them anyway. An image has been attached, it’s the best one I could...

    Unidentified Algae on Driftwood

    I found this growing in my tank... I think it’s algae, but I’m not completely sure. I just set up my tank a few days ago and I have driftwood, rock, substrate, and a couple of plants so far. I have only noticed it on the pieces of driftwood. I am planning on adding fish this weekend. I have had...

    Driftwood and Rocks

    Hello guys, I am starting to decorate my new tank. All I have currently is the sand. I'm am doing heavily planted with driftwood and rocks. I was wondering if I could use any wood for the driftwood, so long as I clean it right. I live next to a couple rivers and a large lake so I have a lot to...

    Attaching Java moss to driftwood

    Hi all, I bought some Java Moss which I have attached to some driftwood from my tank with fishing line and added this back to my tank. My only concern is should I worry about my fish getting caught or doing any harm to themselves on the fishing line in the picture? I didn’t want to do this to...

    I have a 7lb manzanita driftwood that I’m waiting to become waterlogged and sink. Anyone with a similar wood size and type that’s gone through this before? Any guesses on how long?

    Ph dropping significantly

    Hey all, We're beginning to run into a new problem. Over the past several weeks our ph has been slowly dropping, to where now it's about 6.8. A few weeks ago it was holding steady at about 7.6-7.8. I know that our fish prefer the lower ph so it isn't an issue at the moment, but we don't know...

    PH and driftwood

    Evening! Complete newby here. Joined a forum because of the false advice I keep getting given by aquarium shops (After failing my first tank from being told I can put a load of fish in a new tank after a few days). I'm now running a fully cycled 120litre stocked tank with no issues after a lot...

    Shrimp hiding all of the time

    Hi, so I had a new aquarium around a month ago and had a couple of amano shrimp in there. The shrimp, along with all of the other fish were really happy and doing great. However i haven't seen my shrimp in around a week now so I looked for them and got a torch and looked under some drift wood...

    Pleco won’t eat

    Hi, I got what I believe to be a common pleco about two days ago, he’s in a 4ft 250L tank. I’m concerned for him as he won’t go near the drift wood I’ve provided, instead he tends to prefer a wooden-looking barrel instead. The barrel is plastic so he’s not eating it. I can’t seem to convince him...

    Try for the "blackwater" look

    I very recently learned about black water aquariums and am trying to figure things out with a 10 gallon before possibly doing a 20 gallon. I decided not to mess with changing the pH but if it does change after adding leaves and driftwood, then that's okay. So far, I've added a bunch of oak...
