Hi everyone,
I am Vivek Tharayil from Rochester, Minnesota. I have always loved and had Aquarium since the age of 10 and my 1st fish was a black angel and even though I didnt know much about aquariums and fish, this black angel of mine managed to fight through all stress and trouble and lived for 5 years. I guess after that it could take it anymore and finally gave up and died. Anyway, to make the long story short, I have always loved having and maintaining an aquarium, but started getting really interested in aquascaping a few months back and have been regularly reading about and came across this nice Aquatic Plant central community. Eventhough I have had aquariums before, I am pretty new to aquascaping and would love to learn about this beautiful piece of art or hobby and set up an awesome tank like few of the pictures I have seen in this community. Thanks in advance to all your support.

Welcome keviv! Like Ravi, this site has helped me tremendously. There are great folks here and great info!

So, what kind of tank do you currently have? Or have you been out of the hobby for awhile?

Hello keviv. Glad you found us. This is a great place for info. If you check out the stickys at the beginning of each forum that will give you lots of info. If you check out the library there are a few general articles in there that might help you. Here are 3 links to articles that are great for general knowledge. This is a good starting place for you!

Thanks a lot Ravi, Dave, Texgal, Jan and Trena. I just recently got back to the aquarium hobby 3 months ago. I just started small and got a 10 Gal tank, as I didnt know much about the water and plants here in the US compared to India. Now I am really looking forward to a bigger tank, but not sure whether I should jump in now as I might be moving from Mn in July. I know patience is the key to aquascaping, and am thinking I should be patient and wait a little until I move. So, nowadays other than taking care of my 10 Gal tank, I've been reading a lot and came across this forum and found it really helpful and friendly.
Thanks a lot you guys,
Vivek
