I am from DeMotte, about 30 minutes south of Merriville. This corner seems to be a happening place in the state of Indiana. Anyone looking to get rid of some plants? I am just starting a simple planted aquarium, mainly because I use plants in my curriculum I teach in junior high, and I am sick of always having to buy new ones. I figure growing my own will be more economical, plus the students really enjoy seeing this kind of ecosystem.
Last year, I had a bit of a reef tank in my classroom. The students did enjoy that as well. The only issue with that was it was hard to keep the levels normal and I ended up having to get rid of it. I am hoping that a planted tank will be a little easier to keep in a classroom.
