Thanks guys! very happy to be involved here. Lots of great information and people at APC and I'm looking forward to contributing.
A little background on my hobby experience up to now :
As a kid I had a couple aquariums, nothing fancy - and it was enjoyable but not 'gripping'
no real exposure to planted tanks until I noticed the first AGA contest on the web. I had never seen planted tanks like that. So I was hooked and quickly had several disastrous attempts at planted tank keeping, using the reefing equipment I was already familiar with.. I didn't want to give up so I started seriously lurking aquatic forums until I found forums specific to planted tanks. They kept me not only interested but helped me succeed. Hopefully I can add positive things to the hobby by being here and thanks again for having me onboard!
