The Planted Aquascaping forum was intended to be used as a forum for discussions specific to aquascaping a planted tank. What it may have become is different than its inital purpose.
The Tank Journal idea somewhat goes along the ideas in my mind as the FW
showcase forums found here.
The descriptions that are assocated with those forums are "This is a forum for you to showcase your freshwater tank. Show us your tank, show us your equipment and inhabitants and tell us how you do it." in respect to FW
and the same for SW
except its of course for SW
