  1. New to Planted Aquariums
    Recently I setup a new fresh water tank and it was my first planted tank. I thought it'd be great to show everyone the process from the beginning so I put together a video. So hope you enjoin it and please give some comment/advice if you could. Thanks.

    I was at the LFS looking for some dwarf sag and I came across this plant that I really liked. It looked very healthy, but it had no label so they gave it to me for free. Can anyone help me figure out what plant this is...

If you know a thing or two about these plants, any advice would be greatly appreciated. I'm a...

    Hello! Okay so, today I observed my poor aquascaping skills and considered rearranging my plants. Leaf pruning went well, and so did the root snipping. After the taller plants were removed, I pulled up my microswords. When I went to check the roots, "ooh thats just a big bright red fish poo...
