I'm in the planning stages of my first ever planted tank, so I've been doing a fair bit of research. This is a great forum for it; lots of activity and knowledge
I've not had an aquarium for a while, but I kept marines for a fair few years until I moved and sold all my stuff. It's amazing just how different things are on the freshwater side. It's fun learning about new stuff though. I'll keep this short, and set up a thread for my intended planted tank, instead of asking loads of questions from here. Suffice it to say, I'll be going low tech, since I need to keep the budget down!
