Hi folks! Sorry about the long hiatus.
However it is a great time to think about a new aquarium as the weather warms up and we don't have to worry about temperature fluctuations in our homes. We're seeing a lot of older species from the hobby popping up this year, such as the violet goby, and giant danios. Both wonderful fish for medium sized tanks.

More posts coming soon, so stay tuned!
Stay warm and keep your sleeves wet.
Happy fishkeeping,
Apex Aquatics

A lot of misinformation floats around in the aquarium hobby. Don't always believe what you read. Every aquarium is different and will react to treatment for multiple ailments in different ways. Only way you can decide what works for you is to find someone with experience in all types of tanks, and always consider a second opinion.

Photoperiod length is a very important part of the overall health of the planted tank.
After aquatic plants "rest" during off hours, nutrient absorption is increased within the first few hours of exposure. This, combined with an optimal Co2 setup, can make your plants explode with life, and limit pesky algae blooms.

Keep your sleeves wet!

Did you know that here in the pacific northwest, we have a number of terrestrial mosses that can be conditioned for submersed growth?

The frond structures of these species are similar enough to that of their submersed cousins, that they rarely have a hard time coping with the change.

Dicranoweisia cirrhata is just one of these species. Often referred to as "rooftop moss", this is exactly where you will find it. Strong winds can rip large mats free from their lofty perch, ripe for the picking.

Snip snip. Good tools are an important part of every planted tank enthusiast's arsenal. Tropica uses high quality stainless steel to ensure your tools stay in tip top shape for years.

Not all stainless steel is created equal, rust can set in quick on the areas of the tool that are hard to dry, so trust the best.

► Plant Care - Spring Scissors 15 cm

✔️Handy plant scissors for trimming of aquarium plants.
✔️High quality brushed stainless steel.
✔️Also ideal for smaller aquariums; they are short (only 15 cm) and the spring system makes them very easy to handle.

▶︎ How to use the product

Aquarium plants will sooner or later require trimming, in order to avoid that fast-growing plants take control and spoil the idea of the original layout.

💬 These handy scissors will ease the task! See how to trim different types of plants here: http://bit.ly/2sVK19w

Archer fish are a perfect choice for a good sized paludarium.
With a few overhanging branches, and a handful of crickets, watching a fish feed was never more fun.
