Talking Hello, forum newbie

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to introduce myself to your wonderful site!
I have had many tanks over the years, started with a 10l plastic hex and with little or no advice killed everything I put in it :-( very sad!
So did my research and worked my way up... Last tank was a 180 l south American planted biotope ( mostly!).... Loved this tank so much but had to move and couldn't keep it so I am starting again with a little one!
Juwel vio 30l, going for a planted aquascape, with tetras and cories.... Love my cories - the last lot I had were breeding like mad.

So that's me... Hi all!

30 l juwel vio, fluval 206 external filter, DIY co2, 50w heater.
Black sand, moomin and bog wood, granite rocks
Fauna: 14 cardinal tetras, 5 boesemani corydoras, 3 otocinculus, bee shrimp, 2 assassin snails (some pond snails for the assassins)
Flora: vallisinaria, have moss, flame moss, mini pellia, fissidens fontanus, Pygmy chain sword, dwarf hair grass, golden anubia, bonsai Anubias and some algae (!)

Welcome Devonviolet
You will find a wealth of information on this site and some very helpful people.
Just bear in mind that most on here are in the US and sleep while we work/play/whatever.
It wont be long before you are back to the 180Ltr again.
