• 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 everyone,
    We are launching the ScapeCrunch Genius Program that will get you a nice Screenshot 2023-03-26 at 7.04.23 PM.png graduation cap icon next to your name.

    There are 4 selection criteria to be identified as a genius member:
    1. Number of posts - 500 posts
    2. Ratio - (posts/reaction score) .8
    3. Trophy points - 40
    4. Reaction score - 1000
    There will be a widget on the front page that shows your progress towards Genius grade.

    This is a fun way to reward those members that actively contribute to the ScapeCrunch community. It's a recognition of their efforts.

    Thanks for being part of our growing community and, as always, please let me know what you think.
