My name is Shane Puthuparambil! I have been stalking pages in this forum for a while, but I would like to introduce myself due to recent circumstances.
I was an avid member of a forum by the name of "The Planted Tank", one of my favorite websites ever due to the wealth of information on there. The members there were exceptionally nice and kind to me, many donated plants to a school aquarium project I am working on! I was glad to be a part of that community until I was banned by moderators for not being "compliant" even though I asked for help and assistance from them to explain the policies on the site. Unfortunately, I was originally banned for a week, which turned into 3 months. Long story short, I needed to contact a member and send them the plants they won for an RAOK, so I created a new account, mods found out, and I got banned. RIP! Lol.
Since my crappy experience with those moderators, I have recently had great experiences with the ones on APC so kudos to the management team!
I wanted to more formally introduce myself. I am a high schooler from Portland, and am an avid plant/fishkeeper. I am setting up a 20 gallon long tank in my classroom on Tuesday
This was one of my prelim scape ideas but it has transformed since then. Anyways, I will be setting up a 75g in my family living room in June or so, when I have enough funds to do so. I currently have a 10g plant growing tank which houses a wide variety of plants and a couple of tetras!
Thanks for reading this post, and I can't wait to contribute positively on this forum!
Lots of love,
Ps I also saw some of my homies from the planted tank on here and I will be following you soon!!!
