hello everyone!
I have been reading different books about aquariums and plants and been browsing around to find out about this amazing hobby.
I havent set up anything yet, I first need to gather as much info as possible for my first aquarium ever!
Seems like this is a great place to gather information and share with the community.

Welcome. The best advice I can give is to not rush anything. Mistakes can be expensive. It's easier and cheaper to do things right the first time..

Boston? blah.

Hi Mobot,

I'm from the burbs...............Framingham. There's a store out here that has a good amount of plants and equipment. It's called Tropic Isle and is on Rt9 East. There is also Uncle Neds Fish Factory in Millis that I belive Aquabotanic has a 'business co-operative' with for plants.
