• 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!

Low Tech Tank Planet Tribble - Fastest Scape I've Ever Done

This was my older ADA Mini S tank and it was most definitely low-tech. It's the result of having two dozen Marimo moss balls sitting around and really wanting a scape in a hurry.

Nice, very cool. Also you take great pictures. What camera are you using?

Thanks, I'm still using my Canon 60D. That pic was actually taken with the 60D and a Canon 60mm macro lens. I normally use my macro for closeup shots of plants/fish and my 24mm for FTS, but that was a small tank and I was able to backup enough to use the 60mm which is a nice sharp lens.
