Hello APC!
I have been reading that nice forum for a while - especially lurking in aqua-journals threads. There I promised myself that I will surely create my own journal to share with you and listen to critics and advices. So here I am - sitting in the room with the photo camera and half-setuped aquarium, waitting for my driftwood to dry - so I can put it in dry setup..
My name is Ilia and I am from Russia, Moscow. Im quite new to planted tanks and hobby itself. Started my first serious community tank more then year ago - in octomber of 2007. Then I saw Amano and Oliver Knott works - got really catched up. Decided to try out aquascaping.
For more then a half of the year I`ve been studying about planted aquariums - and meanwhile purchasing stuff for my new planted tank.
More - in upcoming journal.
Nice to meet you all.

Hello Neil. Thank you) By "AKBAPNYMNCT"( "Аквариумист" - dont know if forum support cirillic fonts..) what are you meaning? Aqua magazine? We have "Aquarium" magazine here.
But honestly, russian aquariumistic isnt on great level - if you want decent equipment - you still have to buy foreign stuff. As well as magazines. Japanesse, English, German or US ones are the best I guess.

That is it. I was in Moscow in 1993 or 4 (I think) and remember the start of several aquarium magazines, including that one. The AQUATIC BOOK SHOP (in California) still has some available for sale. Although they are not at very high technological level, i observed lots of knowledge, interesting fishes and growing interest in aquatic plants.
