Hello from Ted's Fishroom

Hello Everyone! Thanks to Robert Hudson for pointing the way to this forum on his blog (AquaBloggin).

I have been around the hobby for a long time, and kept planted tanks (totally the wrong way) a couple decades ago. I recently started up four planted aquariums and discovered that when it comes to plants, I am pretty much a 'sprout'. I have a ton of questions!

I maintain a video blog, www.tedsfishroom.com, and will start a series on my planted tank adventures soon. I am sure that you will find them funny, as I really do not know what I am doing. Trial and error...

I also maintain the dwarf cichlid forum at www.apistogramma.com . Not sure how many cross members we have, but considering how well plants and dwarf cichlids go together we should have a few members in common.

Questions to start soon...

Welcome! I plan on joining over there because I am picking up a pair of 'double flame' cacatuoides for breeding next weekend. I am going to need lots of help

Welcome Ted. I have watched a number of your videos on You tube before. Not bad at all.
