Everything. I'm starting at the ground up. So I will need proper lighting, and a filter I was kindathinkin a sponge filter and I'm gonna do a size 30 tank if that helps. I really just want dwarf hairgrass, some tall plants in the back and some moss covered rocks. Everywhere I've been in ssac the plants areexpensive and don't look healthy

TAB,

I too recently got into this hobby. I set up a 30 gallon tank with the bottom half water and elevated land. A pump creates a waterfall and a creek that leads back into the water. I keep about 10 minnows, a baby turtle, two fire-bellied toads, and a newt in the tank. The minnows have bred and the turtle seems content with his own pellet food. I also keep a variety of plants in the water as well.

Now I'm working on an even bigger beast, about twice as long as my current tank. I would really like to have it thoroughly planted so a filter won't be needed.

I would myself LOVE some scraps, especially some carpeting plants like Dwarf Hairgrass or Java Moss. I wouldn't mind traveling to Fair Oaks to see whatchya got and hopefully get some tutelage? Send me an email and I'll respond fairly immediately if this sounds agreeable to you!

I'm in Fresno, and I'm a new user, but when I lived up in that part of the country I really liked Capitol Aquariums. Not sure if they are still around, their website is still up anyway.

Anyone from Fresno?
