I started my first ever tank back in the spring , it was an aquatic turtle tank that housed my two baby painted turtles that I found on a nature walk. Just a few months later I decided I wanted to get fish. Thus, October 15th, 2011, I started my first ever fish tank. Having no idea what I was doing I stumbled upon these fantastic forums! Now I would consider myself a semi-knowledge'd tank owner! I am 16 years old, and glad I started on the hobby of planted tanks young! Can't wait to show you guys how I do.. WITH MY FIRST EVER HIGH-TECH PLANTED TANK!!!!!
So before I get into talking about all the fancy things I plan on having with this tank, a lot of you are probably asking yourself.. "high tech for your first planted tank?"
The answer to that is, "Go big or go home"
. I feel that after many many many hours researching what it takes for a successful tank through others mistakes, questions, and journals that I will be able to keep a 5.5 under control!
