• 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!

    Every so often, someone asks how the title under your name is decided. I figured it would be interesting for everybody to know a little more about it.

    The title under your name changes as your engagement with the community increases over time. It measures the number of times you've posted and awards you the title accordingly.

    These are the current levels you can achieve:

    - New Member 0 - 19 posts
    - Community Member 20 - 99 posts
    - Active Member 100 - 499 posts
    - Well-known Member 500 - 999 posts
    - Valuable Member 1,000 - 2499 posts
    - 2500 Club Member 2,500 - 4999 posts
    - 5000 Club Member 5,000 - 7499 posts
    - 7500 Club Member 7,500 - 9999 posts
    - 10K Club Member 10,000 posts

    It's based on an honor system. Essentially, we want to reward members for being engaged but not for gaming the system. The Staff reserve the right to remove posts from anyone that simply posts in order to increase their post count.

    In the end, I hope you see it as a little source of pride in yourself and your fellow ScapeCrunchers. You're being recognized for leaning in to our growing community.

    Have fun!
