Hello from Upstate NY

Thought I might introduce myself. My name is Shaina and I love plants and fish. I am autistic and my plants and betta's are the reason for my existance. Well a few weeks ago, I wanted to start a planted tank so I got some plants delivered and planted my 6.6 gallon aquarium Thursday. I am hoping it will flourish because I saw so many beautiful tanks on here.

Hello!

You may have already seen it but there's a NY forum in the regional forums here:

http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/66-new-york/

Mostly NYC activity but there are some upstate people on there too.

Hello fellow New Yorker.

Glens falls is beautiful.

It's amazing how fish can be so calming. Every nite I come home and decompress by watching my goldfish. It's a small treasure in a busy crazy world.

Hello,
I am from Oswego, NY. It's nice to find out other people who are from central/upstate.
Hope you find all the info you need!

My roommate says I'll die by giant turtle.

I have heard of it, but I never went there. I get my fish at Petsmart and sometimes Bensens in Queensbury

Hi Platy lover,
Welcome to the forum. The community under the New York subforum has been steadily growing in the past two years and we have come together to swap and share many things like plants, fish, shrimp, foods, accessories and even tanks so feel free to swing by. If you are looking for plants to get you started, PM me and i'll see what we can do.

Best, AC

Eddies is the best Ive ever seen in that area. I used to go to their store when it as in Menands. The Capital District doesn't have the greatest selection of aquarium shops.
