  1. My LFS has a 5 gallon bowl that they are selling for $20. It has the perfect dimensions and everything! I am so close on buying it. My plan would be to put it on my desk next to my window, and have it be another dirted walstad aquarium with neocardinal orange pumpkin shrimp. For plants heres what I was thinking... Varius Anubias Hornwort Bacopa Bolbitus Tiger Lotus Bulb Amazon Frogbit Knowing that the anubias, hornwort, and frogbit should all do fine with ambient lighting from the window I am wondering if Bacopa, tuger lotus and Bolbitus would do fine in a low light setting. If it matters I'm looking at bacopa carolina. This bowl also has a internal air filter. From my inspection I thought it looked like I could remove the filter compeltley, using instead the plants to filter the tank. It being a walstad tank that is only a few gallons, I think it'll be fine with no waterflow/ filtration.
  2. Hi guys! Trying my hand at live plants for the first time in a 3 gallon Betta tank. I need help on the best low-light easy to grow options. I’d like to fit a good number of plants if possible. The tank is 10 x 10 and it has a gravel substrate. Thanks for any advice or help you can share.
  3. Hi everyone I’m about to embark on my first planted tank. I do have experience keeping fish though. I just set up a 40 breeder and used about 40 lbs of eco complete and capped it with some regular aquarium gravel it’s ranging from 2-4 inches and already have a small school of harlequin rasboras and cory , I’m thinking of starting with some crytps like parva for the foreground and maybe wendtii for mid I would like to do a couple swords in the background like little bear or another shorter variety or possibly some sort of stem plants. I will obviously use plant tabs and is a finnex stingray 2 enough light for the swords? Especially where they’d be going is about 10-12” deep due to the deeper substrate is this sounding like a decent set up? And achievable with my setup
  4. I'm planning a nano tank (6.5 gallons) with nanofish and snails. I want it to be low to mid light (with a black background and dark substrate, nice and dramatic) and I'm also a big fan of absolutely jam-packing tanks with plants so they help manage fish waste. However, most low-light plants I can find are rhizome plants, and I'm worried I need more root-feeders to help with the waste that settles in the substrate. The complete plant list I'm planning on including is: 3-4 dwarf lillies, 2 anubias barteri, 2-3 anubias gold coin, 2-3 crypt tropica, and a whole bunch of crypt parva. Is this line-up ok or do I need to find more low-light root feeders?
  5. Alright I have this empty 10 gallon. It was one of the starter kits that came with little led lights and a filter. I am planing on setting up a "breeding for profit tank" (i know there isn't much profit involved, so its more for fun). I plan on putting mollys and cherry shrimp. I would like to keep these lights that came with the tank even though I know not many plants will thrive under those conditions. Here are the plants I was thinking about -Hornwort -Cryptacorne Wendetii -Moss -Possibly Anubius What do you guys think? Are these plants require more light? Here is the starter kit: https://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/tetra-complete-led-aquarium-kit-10-gallon/6000187104461?cmpid=sem_google_en_pla_none_6530281610_83783310932_None&gclsrc=aw.ds&&gclid=CjwKCAiAu8SABhAxEiwAsodSZOBmNBnUF7KgV2gLLbwHIGL_t1wG7xm8XnM_NDDjTl9bKSbn8v0-shoCQUIQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds The lights are just two small led lights.
