Well after a year away from planted tanks, I'm back!!!

So last year I sold off ALL of my planted tank stuff (lighting, plants, substrate, ferts, etc...), thinking that I was done with the planted tank side of the hobby. But now I've cleared out all of my native fish species (crappie and green sunfish), and I'm about to rehome my 11" Male Paratilapia Polleni cichlid later this week so I can get back into the planted tank scene.

What made me leave planted tanks was because I had no real money to spend on upgrading my tanks, but now my Durango was paid off this month which frees up $250 a month that I want to use towards getting back into planted tanks.

So now I'm back for good!!!!!!!!!!!!

We've all left for periods, but end up coming back. After all, watching plants grow isn't the most stimulating of hobbies.

I feel your pain, didn't sell out, but downsized and dabbled in saltwater.

Ha so true, but I think that a planted tank seems to be more relaxing to the mind than say a cichlid tank for some reason.
