Hello to all! I have been in the aquarium hobby for almost 50yrs. Have just recently became interested in the gardening aspect of the hobby. I have a 55gal. tank at present that I want to set up as a South American planted tank so I am here to learn what is needed to take care of these native plants. I also have a couple of smaller tanks that I will be planting in the future. For now the attention will be set on the 55. I work in a craft supply warehouse fulltime, and, parttime I am a firefighter/paramedic in a small township south of Strongsville here in Ohio. Any pointers as to where to start would be of great help as I have never really given the plants in my tank the attention they needed.

Welcome! The following website/article helped me tremendously when I started off:

http://www.aquatic-plants.org/articles/basics/pages/index.html

Before reading it I didn't even really know what questions to ask. So, read, digest, read some more, and start experimenting and asking questions. Don't be afraid to make mistakes, expect algae to thrive for at least awhile, and be PATIENT. :D
