• 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, SteveCoxon

Hello! I'm a lifelong fish keeper. I got seriously into breeding when I joined the Missouri Aquarium Society in about 2018 and began getting more serious about aquatic horticulture during the pandemic. I currently run a 60-tank fishroom focused on apistos, killies, and wild type bettas, but I have a lot of other fish as well including schools of about 20 species of Corydoras and Scleromystax, 3 nano reefs, and a couple Congo biotopes. I also have several tanks dedicated to shrimp. All my tanks are planted, and I have 7 tanks on CO2 currently. I enjoy aquascaping, especially nano tanks, and want to get better at this art.
