    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...

    Fertilizers? Substrate? Help needed for a planted tank

    It's been a long time since I've had a fish tank with live plants, and I'd really like this next one to be planted. The tank will have 2 dwarf gouramis, 2 killifish, 10 neon tetra, 2 african dwarf frogs, and maybe some cherry shrimp. pH will be around 7 and temp will be about 77 degrees F. I'm...

    Hi all! 65gallon tropical

    Hello all! I’m excited to be here. I have some experience with basic tanks in the past; betas, guppies, mollies, etc in 40gal or smaller. Nothing this big or beautiful until now. Most recently I deactivated my Facebook account and decided to go all out with a brand new 65gallon deep set up...

    Trouble keeping plants alive in low light

    I’m trying to keep my tank looking beautiful but I keep running into issues. Plants keep dying, even some of the apparently easiest to keep. Im hoping for help from someone with “low tech” experience. I cannot easily add light or c02 other than changing the bulb. I’m running an Arcadia 18inch t8...

    New to the fishy hobby!

    Hi! I'm nervous about starting this new adventure. I'm just scared I'll mess up and kill my future little friends. Probably bc when I had fish as a kid/teen i knew nothing of cycling and testing waters. I have a 37 gal top fin kit. That came with a 200 watt heater, 40 power filter, and other...

    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...

    New Betta

    got this new Betta at Petco, nothing really stands out much about her expect how her tail has threads like a crown tail on it, they are very small however. She is quite a young fish about 4 or 5 months old so it is to be detrimend on if she is a true veil tail, which I think she is. Haven't...

    Java Moss

    I am thinking of creating a landscape-look for my tank and was wondering if java moss can grow on/in sand? I have seen that Java moss is often used to create a 'grass' type look and it seems like it doesn't need much to thrive. I've read that a few people buried their java moss partway into the...

    Java Moss, Decorative Or Uncontrollable?

    So, what's the general opinion guys?   Keen to add some to the driftwood in this tank, along with an Aunbias nana, but heard it can be literally impossible to remove from an aquarium once added... advice please!     Also, could anyone ID that plant I have in the background? Cheers, Alex.
