Hello! My name is Dave. I'm as wet behind the ears as they come -- where fishkeeping is concerned, anyway. More generally speaking, I've been around the block a few times. I'm a middle-aged bartender from Brooklyn, New York.
I'm here at The Planted Tank to learn. Perhaps someday I'll get to teach somebody something. But for now, I'm full of questions and wonder. I haven't got a tank yet, just a bunch of aspirations and a tight budget. Haha. I've been reading for the past couple months online. Trying to figure it out ahead of time in an attempt to avoid missteps. But at some point, it all begins to look like too many words on a page and one just has to get started, no? That's what I feel like anyway.
thought I was going to startup a 75g marine tank with corals and all that. I read some more, changed my mind, continued to read, visited all the LFS I could get to via subway or bicycle to get a feel for what's out there, and finally wound up here at The Planted Tank with some very specific ideas about what I'd like to achieve in a 20g long tank, which I look very forward to buying just as soon as I figure out which tank is best. *sigh* Back to the reading. This hobby is supposed to be relaxing, right?
See you on the forum.
