New Mexico Tambien
Just joined the forum myself and thought I'd post my hello in the NM slot. I'm a Santa Fean, an ex-NYorker, and I keep freshwater planted tanks.
NM is hard place to be a aquarist bc there are so few of us here and there are NO LFS's, but I do love picking up equipment off of craigslist around here... since there's no buying market whenever someone does sell its usually a great discount and a lot of stuff. I just got two tanks, hood light setups for each and a whole bunch of condintioner, food, gravel, heaters, etc. for $30.
fauna: I keep blue pearl shrimp, otos, and a betta. Just had to shoot a golden algae eater in the back of the head for getting to big and rough with my plants.
Flora: java moss, christmas moss, HC, a dying anubia, Peace Lilies, Madagascar Lace Plant, Bacopa, Red Ludwig, and some banana plants.
