• 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!

    While I encourage members to support the planted aquarium companies that support our hobby and this site, I do want to share that Bulk Reef Supply has a freshwater section now. It's called BRS Fresh. If you don't know them, BRS disrupted the reef retail business. I wonder if they will be as successful in the freshwater side.
    Interesting for sure. I see most of their lights are the big names in the saltwater side that are slowly trying to get into freshwater. (AI Prime, Radion Gen5, Kessil A80 Tuna Sun and AquaMax). For the most part we do not hear or see many people using them. Once in a blue moon someone will pop up that has them. I see two reasons: 1st the color rendition, dont know about the par but suspect its adiquite. These lights down right make the tank look hiddious. 2nd and the biggest is price. Heck I could buy 2x Chihiros LEDs or even 2x NetLea LEDs for the price of one Radion Gen 5 :unsure::unsure::unsure:
    They have a very long way to go to compete with even AquaRocks Colorado, BucePlant and the rest of the freshwater stores.
