• 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!

    Hi! I know that at times it can be difficult to know whether or not a plant is right for your tank. There are lots of things to consider when purchasing a new addition to your planted aquarium: What size is the tank? What other plants and fish are already in there? What inverts are in there? Is it using CO2 or not? What type of water do you have? Is it a sensitive plant that needs special care requirements? Does it require particular water parameters?

    These are all possible concerns that can come up in deciding on what aquarium plant to get. ScapeCrunch is here to help! Whether you're new to the hobby, or just unsure about a new addition, we'll be glad to help with advice and giving info about the aquarium plant(s) that will help it thrive for many years in your tank. Of course, the tank is yours and so is the plant, so no one here will tell you what you can or CANNOT do with your own tank. We're just here to help by sharing our own knowledge and experience.

    So let's get this thread going! If you're thinking about a new purchase and just not sure, post it up! :cool: #helpmedecide
