What up, TPT!!!!

Hello, everyone!

I'm not sure who all is still on here, but some of you may know I've been on quite a long hiatus from the hobby. I tore down all my tanks, even my little reef tank. Anyway, I'm considering making a comeback into the planted tank hobby (Admittedly for a bit of extra cash) , but the main reason was seeing a friends tank (I didn;t even know he was in the hobby) It re-kindled my interest. I'm not certain I will even be doing a tank, but if I do it's just going to be a small hightech cube. So, what plants are in demand at the moment folks?


Hello to all my old friends, and to the newgoers of this site!

Good to see you're still alive Zach.

Stop clowning around and start up a new tank already.

I've also been out of the plant game for a while now so I can't help you with what's the best sellers. Just look under WTBs and you might get a better idea.

Finally your back!

I was wondering where you went.

I've seen a large amount of WTB Downoi threads lately.

Grown downoi, done with that. Cool plant, but if anything I'll grow a few crowns for myself and that's it.

Thanks for the welcome back, guys. Like I said, still not sure I'll do a tank... I mean.... I have all the stuff to set up a really nice cube tank save for the light... I just lack motivation. xD

Thanks, Laura!

I might go through my aquarium goods stash to see what all I'd need if I set up my cube tank.

Welcome back. I was wondering with the cost of maintaining it, is it possible to make money with just a cube? I'm new here so I don't know how you did things before. Or are you just doing it because you like it and sell stuff just to offset the costs? Either way welcome back again and can't wait to see what you come up with.

BTW I have a new plant that I love, alternanthera reineckii cardinalis, there seems to be a expensive mini version that has been talked about a lot lately. You might want to look into that.
