I live on the Sunrise/Tamarac border and go to school at Nova down in Davie. Definitely agree that The Planted Aquarium store is a great place. I'm a regular customer there and at Allfish Emporium in Tamarac.
Right now I am down to one 30gal med-light high-tech project tank. I'm working on breeding otos and Sundadanio axelrodi in there. It's pretty heavily planted with various crypts and soon fissidens fontanus. I have a thread going on in the plants forum journaling a technique for attaching fiss to rock/wood right now.
Good to know there are more people around here who like planted tanks instead of the usual reefs all of my coworkers keep.
