Smile Hi

Hi, just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Errin and I am located in western Massachusetts. I didn't make it to the meeting in Millis (obviously lol) but it sounded very interesting. It was just a little out of my travel zone since I have a 4-month-old baby. I was kind of bummed out to tell the truth but I hope to make it to the next meeting especially if it is at Fish Frenzy, which is only about a 45-minute drive from here. I currently have 10 gallon Nano and am excited that plants are growing in it! YAY! I have researched aquatic plants on and off for the last 5 years but just started the nano about 8 months ago. I was always too broke to try even a low-tech planted tank before. Being a self-financed student doesn’t pay very much! Now we live in a bigger apartment and I can finally set up my 55 gallon so I am pretty excited to give the plants a try in something bigger. For a substrate I plan on using a clay Soil Conditioner which is similar to Turface MVP mixed with gravel to give it more weight. I will have 120 watts of light and will probably use an AquaClear filter in the beginning. I do have a substrate heater that I bought over a year ago and now am not sure if I will use it. I figure I might as well since I already paid for it but now i realize I should have sprung for pressurized CO2 instead. I will be stuck with DIY CO2 until I get a part time job to pay for my hobby. So that's enough outta me hope to meet you all in person in about a month Any advice is always greatly appreciated! Wish me luck lol

Hi Errin
Our next meeting will be in Farmington, CT at the NEC convention. But in May it will probably head back to Fish Frenzy! Dennis may want to further comment...
