Seems like this thread already has a large pool of information on Houston/Texas Natives. Thanks Bluestems for that explanation. Makes much more sense now. I'm sure the others who come to visit this thread and reading about it will also know. I, myself, am still in the learning game. I've only started planted tanks since September 2012 and fish back in April 2012.
If you want, I could meet up with you every now and then to go collecting for this tank? I'm sure with multiple trips and more than one person, we could easily set up this tank in no time.
