    Hey guys still semi new to fishkeeping, but when I do something I go big!

    I started planted tanks about a year ago really helped out alot there,
    now I have three 1.2m main tanks and about 20 random plant prorogation tanks + a large pond...

    The reason I joined this forum is to meet other enthusiasts and maybe trade rare and beautiful plants and other things down the line.:blink1:

    Here is a pic of my favorite tank: I have since added an HC carpet to the empty spot in the front and let the plants grow out abit....
    (ok well turns out I cant post pics:p)

    so ya looking froward to learning as much as I can from you guys...

    Ok fair enough!

    The substrate is a complex mix of garden soil, sierra pot mix, laterite, nails, trace elements, initial sticks, cactus pot mix, and some other things I cant remember toped off with gravel I literally took from a river...
    all in all it works beautifully for the plants but I cant have any loaches that dig around in the gravel, oh and it is currently sitting at over 4w/gallon of lighting..
