    Anyone have experience with Cardinal Plants?

    HI folks I was browsing the various aquatic plant seller websites and was surprised to see Cardinal Flower (lobelia) listed for sale as an aquarium plant. (I have tried to grow the garden variety for a few years now, with limited results) Does anyone know if the two varieties are actually the...

    Plant Matter Clogging Filter Intake

    Greetings, The fallen off plant matter of my pothos frequently clogs my filter intake by getting stuck on the mesh. I have removed it every time, although I had to fight my way to it, as my male jaguar cichlid is quite ferocious and attacks any intruder. I would like to have a definitive...

    Algae in new tank & plant issue

    I’m in the process of cycling my new tank and I now have algae growing. Am I doing something wrong? How can I stop it? Also I’m unsure if this plant is dying and what I should do. My other plants are thriving

    Did I plant everything right?

    Hi, I just started my first ever planted tank. It’s a 30gal, I got everything including tank, filter, LED hood, 100w heater and gravel on the side of the road for free. The only things I have bought so far are the fish which I owned previously in another established tank, and the sand. I say...

    What kind of moss is this?

    I recently acquired some moss from a local creek I visited. I put it in a small jar to wait for all the parasites to die out (probably for too long, the discoloration hopefully doesn’t mean it will die soon), and everything i saw in the jar has died so I took the moss out and washed it...

    Plant ID, all long filaments

    Hi everyone, When I was setting up my tank I saw this floating plant at the LFS and liked how it looked. The guy couldn't tell me what it was. It came with a fake plastic ludwigia that works as an "anchor" for it. I'd like to know what it is, I actually haven't seen it in any of the "big...

    Black sand for Corydoras and Plants?

    I'm currently setting up a low tech 55g aquarium and I'm having trouble with the substrate. To cut to the chase, I'm looking for a black sand that won't be harsh on the cories and other bottom dwellers, but will also be a practical substrate for plants without too much extra care. I've heard...

    Rotten (?) aquarium plants

    I've just gotten an aquarium around 15 days ago and I've plucked a few plants in there since the beginning. Some of them are fine, but others aren't. I was initially hoping that the "rotten" plants might cure themselves after some period of time, but I didn't see any improvements (at least it...

    Plant identification and care?

    Hi all, Looking to improve my plant health, thought the best way to start would be to get some help in identifying each. Water tests show co2 levels are good, light is adequate for easy-care plants, nitrates hover between 10-15 before water changes. I’ve ordered some flourish root tabs in case...
