• 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!

Hello Welcome, FrankZ

Welcome to ScapeCrunch, @FrankZ.
Greetings everybody!

I’ve been keeping aquariums since 2017 thanks to my two little boys that were interested in keeping some mumichog minnows we had left over from fishing. Fast forward to today, now it’s Dad’s hobby with 4 tanks and lots and lots of plants.

I’ve been researching and reading up on all things aquatic plants since around 2019. I’ve finally gotten over my “ego” of trying to figure things out myself and want to learn more for you folks.

There are quite a few of the people I followed on this forum so I figured now was the time to step up and ask.

Thank you all and I’m looking forward to learning from all of you.

  • Love

Love it. I see the multiple tank bug has already hit you...

Welcome, again, @FrankZ. Glad you're here.

Just some housekeeping. Make sure you set up a Built Thread for one or all of your tanks and get a Build Thread badge under your name. The FAQ link in the top navigation can be helpful also.

Lastly, please participate in our Monthly Photo of the Month contests. This month is top down shots.

Looking forward to chatting plants with you.
