Started my potting soil tank in early February to keep costs down as I am a college student. Have had many headaches with my tank but not many due to my substrate. My tank can be seen here This tank has gone through many stages starting with blue gravel to now having German Blue rams.

Can a forum newbie become a member? I've kept fish on and off for 20+ years and I'm now getting into planted tanks. I also own and have read Diana Walstad's book cover to cover. I am currently in the process of gathering parts for 55 gallon Walstad tank.

Am I in?

read the opening post.
this is to be a friendly group with no secret hand shacks or passwords.
the only requirement is some form of dirt as a base along with a thread link being included when joining.

da plan was to provide a directory to those of the dirty tanker side in the hobby.

That's ok, I wanted to be #3 because that's my lucky number - lol Interestingly, if you read horoscopes, it says my lucky # is 7. I never believed it... ; )

Heh, I wanted to wait until #42 was up, because it's the answer to life, the universe, and everything. But I figured I don't watch these threads enough to ensure that I could get the number I wanted. And I'd rather have a lower number. That way in 4 or 5 years I can be like, "yeah, I'm one of the original dirty members... yep, yep, back in the good ol' days. BEFORE the revolution..." I mean... there's no revolution afoot. No. Not at all. Everyone go about your business as usual.

As a matter of fact, yes, I always post, or reply, in novels. I'm adding it to my signature because it seems like I say it in every post!
