Hello all, my name is Patrick. First off I wanted to thank all of you for the usefull posts on this forum. I am 21 years old. I got out of the fish hobby around 10 years ago. I have never kept aquatic plants, although I am a plant freak. Besides fish and plants i am really into reptiles. I have kept them for over 16 years now. A couple monthes ago I stumbled on this forum. some of the stuff you guys and others are createing are mind blowing. There has been such a huge change in the hobby in the past 10 years. first off here is a small sample of the reptiles i currently have.
















Heres a couple shots of my tank. Its a Fluval SPEC V. Sorry about the poor photo quality, im trying to figure out how to take decent photos of my tank.







Here's a picture of my lonly shrimp with eggs. It was the last one at my lfs, I really want more I just don't want to pay for shipping. Anyone local(East Bay) have them?



Thanks for looking, and all the help you did not know you gave me.

Regards, Patrick

Welcome! You have some very cool pets... or should I say family members?
I really like you Fluval Spec V. Looks amazing, and huge! Fluval makes tanks that look huge, but are actually nanos.

Welcome! I don't know much about reptiles, but yours are stunning. Looks like your tank is off to a nice start as well.
