• 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!

    Join our growing team!​

    If you want to get more involved with our growing community of planted aquarium hobbyists and have a little time to volunteer to help, please consider the following positions that we are looking for.
    • Aquarium Plant Database Curator - help to build our database of aquarium plants
    • Article Contributor - if you like to write about the hobby, we need writers willing to do product reviews and hobby articles in the 500 - 1,000 word range
    • Tank of the Month Leader - identify and write the tank of the month post
    There is a wonderful article in the current issue of The Aquatic Gardener entitled Zen and the Art of Aquarium Maintenance - How Our Planted Tanks Help Us Deal With Life. It's a brief but relevant article on the importance of the planted aquarium in our lives and the global community that it brings together. If you feel an urge to give back to the community and be more engaged, please consider one of the above positions. We can really use your help and would love to have you as part of the team.

    Let me know if you're interested.


    Hi everyone,

    I wanted to bring this up to the top again. @ayman.roshdy is graciously helping with building a great aquarium plant database but we can still use help with that and the other open positions.

    If you have some time, an interest in any of the above and want to give back to the community, we can certainly use your help.
