I am here for about a month, but it seems I missed the introduction. I am a retired zoologist, currently live in Virginia. I like both fish and plants in the tank, but well being of the fish is most important to me. If plants grow well, this helps to maintain good water quality and the fish. Besides the aquaria, my major hobby is hunting dogs and hunting. We also have a small pond, about 15x15 feet area and about 5 feet deep in the middle, with goldfish and channel catfish. Plants are Potamogeton sp. and one species of water lily with pink flowers. Other inhabitants are natural: aquatic insects, some snakes, bullfrog, piper frog and toads in spring are coming to breed. We also have four goats and about 20 chickens ranging free.
