• 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!

I am Joe Brunner from Wichita, Kansas. I've started and finished over 200 aquariums in my lifetime. Art invited me to share what will probably be the beginning of my last journey in the hobby. I'm going to design an entire room around one planted fish tank. Look for my build at Joe's Fish Room. I'll do my best to update it weekly if not more often. I am looking forward to the journey and hope you will stop by to share it with me.

Welcome, Joe! So good to have you here.

I'm looking forward to your build! Please make a thread in the Member Tanks forum so that you get a cool link in your bio, like the one some of us have.
