Rozbod's Rimless 17 gal
Well first off i'm new to the scene of planted tanks but have been lurking around this forum for about 6-8 months now. About 3 months ago I got my very first tank and it has been sitting empty since. It has been empty because I have been preparing for it since, doing countless hours of research trying to make this the smoothest possible experience. While trying to do this I have already hit bumps in the road due to budget because i'm only 17 and well funds are limited to say the least. I have been trying to get the best possible equipment i can afford.
My idea is that if I do enough homework and learn through the experiences of others I can counter act the lesser quality equipment. Of course there is no better teacher than experience and i'm sure I will make plenty of mistakes along the way but who doesn't ? The good thing is I feel I am a new component to this great community and hope that you guys will help me along the way.
