• 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!

    Hi all,

    I hope you're all doing well.

    We are performing software updates to our forum platform. These require an update to our forum's style (website design) also. While I don't expect any issues, I would really appreciate it if you would report anything that you see that is broken and not working as it should.

    Also, thank you for your patience as we continue to ensure that ScapeCrunch's back-end looks good and is fit.

    Wishing all of you well,

    Well, that took a while...

    Site was down due to changes to our server software. I won't bore you with the details but some needed extensions were not enabled. Should be working as expected now.

    If you notice anything wrong, please report it here.

    Thanks for your patience!
