• 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!

    Welcome to Day 3 of the ScapeCrunch 2Hr Aquarist give away. Today, we are giving away the versatile APT SKY!

    APT SKY resolves the key conundrum of how to increase water hardness (specifically as a GH booster) without altering NPK values (which interfere with the calibrated ratios of fertilisers) and KH (where higher values are not favoured by most commercial aquatic plants).
    • Discover new possibilities with SKY-boosted water.
    • Enable shrimps and hardwater plants to thrive together with softwater plants*.
    • Replenish all vital minerals in RO/ RODI water with no negative altering of NPK, KH or pH.

      Each 3.5g / 5ml per 60L adds 12ppm Calcium and 3.5ppm Magnesium (+2.5 dGH)
      Recommended: 15ml per 60L of RO/RODI water.

    *To grow softwater plants, RO/RODI water recommended if tap water measures >2 dKH
    Benefits of using APT SKY:
    • As a GH booster, APT SKY is ~ 3X as concentrated as conventional remineralisers. Each 3.5g / 5ml per 60L adds 12ppm Calcium and 3.5ppm Magnesiumm, raising GH by 2.5 dGH. Did we mention that it is super-soluble, non-caking and just a joy to handle?
    • Conventional ‘RO remineralisers’ raise GH but almost all inadvertently alter NPK values. Most add an excessive amount of Potassium, for example. This in turn interferes with optimal fertilisation. APY SKY adds Calcium, Magnesium, trace minerals and natural seaweed extract, in a way that uniquely leaves NPK intact.
    • Plants have conflicting softwater / hardwater requirements. APT SKY removes the hassle of having to choose between softwater and hardwater plants. For softwater tanks, it boosts shrimp health and reproduction. The catch? It does require Softwater or Reverse Osmosis (RO) water to begin with. At the moment, there is no easy way to make Hardwater ’Soft’.
