Hello anyone from the BC area?

just to introduce myself...

i have been in and out of the aquarium scene for the last 15 years or so...started with my very first 10gal my mom bought, which was then upgraded to a 33gal tank (seem really BIG at that time). then i went back to visit my cousin in singapore and found out that he had 8 tanks just setup for breeding and keeping Discus. wasn't long after that when i got my first discus, followed by a number of additional tanks, then bred them, sold them and got bored. moving on 10 years after...i started out my very first saltwater tank, spent lots of $$$ and had to end it cause i was moving out to my own place and couldn't bring it with me.

TODAY...well saw some work from Takashi Amano and was hooked once again. haven't been smooth sailing for me setting up my nano planted, but hopefully things will change around.

p.s. sorry only could find pics of my saltwater tank. my laptop with all my other photos was unfortunately stolen that plexi looking thing was made by me and my friend out of acrylic.

I have not had a tank in 5 years, but am just in the planning/buying phase for setting up a new 90g. Loving all the new options for equipment etc just in the last 5 years that I have been without a tank.
