• Welcome to ScapeCrunch!

    We are a friendly, online community of people interested in planted aquariums. We support and help each other learn and grow. It is our sincere hope that you will join us and find our tight-knit community valuable and fun!

    ScapeCrunch is different than Facebook Groups. Here's how:

    • It is a place where you can make long-term friends in the planted aquarium hobby and have long, multi-day talks on specific subjects.
    • Unlike social media, online communities like ScapeCrunch are much better at curating collective knowledge and in fostering deeper relationships.
    • They lend themselves better at long-form discussions.
    • You can maintain a thread on your personal aquarium with pictures and details. Other members can comment, help and ask questions. You can do the same with their Member Tank threads.

    Where Facebook is more like a large city-wide party, ScapeCrunch is more like your neighborhood bar "where everybody knows your name. And they're always glad you came." It's always fun to go to large parties but it's at the local bar that you feel people really know you. The great part is that you can and should go to both!

    Please consider joining to become a full fledged member of our growing community of planted aquarium obsessed enthusiasts. Let's grow together!

    Join Us!

Any good threads/topics out there that we can bring here?

    One of the things we are doing at ScapeCrunch is trying to breathe new life to good threads, topics and discussions. We’ve all been to other sites where a good discussion has, well, gone stale and the valuable information may be lost in pages of posts.

    Are there any of these that you remember that we should start up here?
    Just a thought...
    I assume with this site, you could create something like a "sticky" at the top of specific section?
    Guess I am thinking of an easier way to find info vs searching for something then getting a bunch of various unrelated replies.
    Specific Forums
    • Equipment Discussions
      • (sticky) CO2 for Planted Tanks
        • Regulators (various discussions/thoughts/links)
        • Metering Valves (various discussions/thoughts/links)
        • Flow Meters (discussions/where to find/what to look for)
        • Delivery
          • In Tank (discussions / links)
          • In line (discussions / links)
          • Reactors
            • Cerges (DIY/Vendor links)
            • Rex Griggs (DIY/Vendor links)
    We all have various articles, web links, etc. that we have saved somewhere (pictures?). Would be interesting if all that information could, over time, be organized in such a way that a rookie could click on a sticky, then drill down to find something specific (i.e. regulators) - then read thru threads specifically related to regulators.
