I've been away from this hobby for awhile but I'm finally ready to get back into it. Because of major upheaval in my life, I had to part with all but one tank. But I now have a place to set it up at last! So I rejoined TPT, and I'm surprised that I don't find any familiar names posting. Or anyone local at all, for that matter!
Surely there's someone from my area into planted tanks? I'd really appreciate any current input on your favorite LFS. And it'd be nice to do some local buy/sell/trade/RAOK! Anyone?????
Sorry I didn't see this earlier! I know what you mean, this can easily eat up too many hours. So I don't let myself get online as often as I'd like. But I've gotten my boyfriend hooked on this hobby and now he wants to build and 'scape a tank in addition to the one I just set up this winter
I'll have plant trimmings eventually and a new project will mean we need lots of stuff. Maybe we can do some swaps.
Tops one is Bacopa and the bottom looks like foxtail (myio - green), both great low light plants, but bacopa is a bit tougher. Hairgrass is awesome! But can be tough to grow. And my loaches routinely up root the stuff!
Was out of the country and my tanks crashed, im in the process of nursing them back, but have to leave for another 5 weeks to the Philipines.. So not looking so well . Most likely going to rescape the whole thing when I get back and will have tons of plants! I also have a 10g gammarus/RCS tank if you wanna try to raise these guys. Very easy.
My cat (for good measure)

Thought I would make this my first post since I am in Boise. I've been keeping planted takes for about 2 years now and recently began keeping RCS and Cardinals. I have 3 tanks and 2 very full of plants that will be trimmed once a month if not twice... Anyways I am new to this forum stuff so if anyone here in town is active I would love to learn from you guys and share what I know. Thanks to any responders.
