I watch his stuff. He's pretty good, especially for beginners, and is a big part of how I started getting into all of this, but the one thing I wish he had on his channel was some sort of pressurized co2 information.

I can also see why some wouldn't like how casual he tends to be, but I'm fine with it cause I don't really think it matters much.

It'd be cool if he got some harder to find plants in though. Maybe someone should send him a sample or two of something hard to come by to help it circulate through the hobby more. He does seem to be the most popular planted tank guru on youtube, and while he is no amano or Tom Barr, he is great for getting into it.

Also, I want his rainbows :P

Dustin's greatest trait is his lack of pretension. His videos are great.

I've been watching him for over a year. I feel like he's been my tutor. Some pressurized CO2 videos would be nice and did you see that green house!?

Dustin has a great talent for speaking on camera and bringing us videos where it is fun hearing him talk. It's harder to speak like that than people get credit for. But anyway, he basically got me started into Planted tanks, and even though I have learned so much additional here on tpt now, It is still fun to watch his vids. His tanks have been lacking a little bit, but he has two young kids now and a job so that makes it hard on him. Hopefully his tanks will rebound in the coming months and looking great again. Great youtube channel

He makes entertaining videos and definitely loves the hobby. Has a ton of planted aquariums but they all look dirty for some reason. Regardless, I'm a fan of his youtube channel and watch his vids frequently.

Dustin is who got me into plants. Doing some research on planted tanks, saw his channel & subbed. Still haven't tried his "dirted" tank style. I'd really like to get a chance to check out his tanks & greenhouse since he's only roughly 15 miles or such away.

He used to swear a lot more in his earlier videos, no so much anymore. It doesn't bother me either way. He's a talented individual, both with tanks and his videos. His tanks sometimes look messy, but that's only because he sells plants out of them on a daily basis, so they're constantly being disturbed and churned up. In his newest videos he has been focusing on getting his 220 tank back in good shape. His 125 he has upstairs is a pretty wicked looking tank. The greenhouse is just awesome. Would kill to have that in my backwyard, fill it with tanks and terrestrial vegetable plants.

I'd say to that his style is that of the jungle tank more than anything.
