    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...

    Java moss problem

    isn't this stuff supposed to grow like nuisance algae? Not for me. I got my java moss when it was a lush green color at petco. I placed it in a Lower light area, parallel to my ozelot sword which obstructs a good majority of light. It's not like it's pitch black, just there isn't too much light...

    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...

    Java Fern Question

    Hi guys. I just had a question about my java fern. One of my plants has these brown "strings" growing off of it. It also has new leaf growth so I don't think it's dying, I'm just what this could be? Thanks!

    Woo! So, after finally tying down ALL my plants so the plecos doesn't rip them up, they are all starting to pop up leaves and I am SO excited! Other than CO2 booster, and this Aqueon plant food I have, is there anything else I can do for my new babies? Or is this about as good as I can do? I...

    Trimming A Java Fern?

    HI all, I've got a java fern which has basically exploded at the tips into hundreds of tiny leaves with brown roots growing out, which is a little ugly, Is it ok to just cut these small growths off, as I prefer the look of just the long leaves. Thanks, Tom :D

    Wierd Translucent Leaves?

    Hi all, I bought a java fern and it was a deep dark green, but the new growth which has happened while it has been in the tank is a pale green and even a bit translucent.   Is this a fixable problem or just normal?   In the pick you can...

    My tank has been set up like 6 months now, and still looks really really bare. I've got sand as my substrate, and a bubble wall with green LED's along the back wall. Got a Cambodian theme going on, with a temple and a lion/dog type statue (if anyone knows where I can pick up more of this kind of...

    Low Maintenance Tank Ideas And A Couple Of Current Problems

    As the title suggests, this topic has a couple of different parts so I wasn't quite sure where to place it - I hope here is appropriate. I've become rather busy recently and my tank is currently in a bit of a state. Plants are dying (java fern turns brown and leaves no longer grow large and...
