• 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!

Hello Hello from Iowa...

Oct 31, 2022
Davenport, IA
Guess if I want to complete my Profile, I need to do some introductions :cool:
From the East side of Iowa (the state few know anything about)
Been in the hobby since early 2015. Of course I started out knowing very little about creating a planted tank. Ended up getting some plants from the local fish store. Soon learned some plants get just too big for a 75g tank (think 3 Amazon Swords). Kinda interesting - first one to comment on my Build Thread from another site was Joe Harvey.
And perhaps the coolest thing that has happened with the tank to date - getting the crinum calamistratum to flower
