Hi folks,

Just thought I'd say hi. I was a fishkeeper as a kid, more than 30 years ago, and recently got back into it at the beginning of the year. I have a 65g planted tank and a 20g partially planted tank. I started out just interested in keeping fish but I find I'm getting as much pleasure out of plant keeping as I am with fish keeping.

Welcome, Nick. I know what you mean about enjoying the plants. I actually think of my fish now as being secondary to my planted tank...except fo rmy Oto's...they are equal to the plants. :D

OK, you asked for it.

This one has some live plants but I have less control over this one.
The plants I have currently:
Java moss
Java fern
Anacharis
Frogbit
Watersprite

Fauna
7 cherry barb fry
8 harlequin rasbora
3 fancy guppies
12 neon tetra
cherry shrimp


And here's my 65g. It's low tech (1.4 wpg, no CO2, no ferts)

I'm planning a complete rearrange on this one. I want to put the 2 driftwoods together and put them both on the left side. The right will be more open with some slate pieces I have and more plants.

The plants I have currently:
Corkscrew val.
Ludwigia repens
Dwarf sag
Narrow leaf chain sword
Java moss
Java fern
Anacharis
Anubias
Melon Sword (soon to be added)
Frogbit
Some myriophyllum
Riccia Fluitans
Various Algae


Fauna

4 Boesemani rainbow
6 zebra danio
6 cherry barb + 3 fry
8 black kuhli loach
2 amano shrimp
cherry shrimp
