Hello From Sacramento:)

Hi all, long time PT forum browser who finally decided to join here.


As far as tanks I have a 110g, 65g, 30g, and a 10g, all low tech and planted to varying degrees. I also have a 300g pond outdoors as well.

I tend to kill most every terrestrial plant I come in contact with but have enjoyed a teeny modicum of success with aquatics which delights me to no end lol. Still, my plant skills need quite a bit of work so I plan on taking advantage of all the site has to offer and I look forward to being a contributing member.

Hello and welcome to unlurkingness!!

If you are looking for information on how to get the most out of your aquatic plants you've come to the right place! If you ever need help with your plants just create a thread and ask, keep in mind picture help out way more than a description, and the better the pictures the easier it'll be for people to help =D

Lol, it is nice to "unlurk" around the forum!

Thank you much and I will be sure to include pics with any questions, I agree the eyes do a better job than fumbling descriptions sometimes.
