• 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!

Holiday forum bats, etc.

SORRY all! Bats are finally gone! Nov 5th so 5 days too late.

Work has been kicking my butt lately and I'm not able to visit the site daily like normal. The holiday script was supposed to turn it off when it turned Nov 1 and it obviously didn't. I've alerted the developer to see if there's an update.

No matter. Did it manually.

Wait till you see the turkeys walking all over your screen during Thanksgiving! 🦃🦃🦃
Probably has to do with your hardware/software combo. On my windows 11 desktop, they fly all around the screen like flies or gnats. Sort of cute, but infinitely annoying IMO.
So this is always kinda fun for me. The script lets you swarm the screen or limit it to just a few. In years past (at APC), I would limit it to a couple of bats.

People thought they were seeing an ant on their screen or a gnat flying by. One even told me they swatted their screen!

It's the little things that make you chuckle. Although that's not very friendly of me so I turned them off.

Let's see what I decide with the turkeys!
