• 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!

    As some of you know, ScapeCrunch was first born as a blog a couple of years ago. I had the great privilege to interview some of the best people in the hobby and post the interview for all to enjoy. One of them was out very own @GreggZ.

    Unfortunately, that old blog was hacked and I lost most of the data. It's was devastating. However, through the magic of the Internet where nothing is ever really gone, I was able to reconstruct some of my work and bring it to you here. I'm giving it new life in our Resources section.

    I'm so pleased to bring @GreggZ's interview first. Please check it out. I still need to add the pictures but the meat of the article is there to enjoy. Eye candy coming soon.

    Please go enjoy the interview and comment if you liked it and/or if Gregg has helped you in the past.

    Stay tuned for more interviews coming soon.

    All the best,

    Thanks Art glad to see you could recover it. I had a few people contacting me and wondered where it went. Now I have to read it again and hope I didn't say anything too stupid!! 😂
