Thanks for posting that.

Bookmarked and see I have some serious reading ahead of me.

The guy truly is an artist.

And hey, I just noticed our own @burr740 is referenced on the site.

Good to see Joe!!

Have seen several Facebook references to his site lately - lot of great information there!!! Missed the Burr740 reference - will have to look some more.
Have done some data logging with regard to co2 levels - will have to make an update in my build thread.

Just spent about 1/2 hour checking out this site.
Before my visit there I first thought "Another one of those!"
From what I read in that short time I would give it a thumbs up for sure.

I wish everyone was required to read this before they are allowed to purchase a plant.
My it would save lots of grief on these forums.
But then we're talking retention and comprehension, it may not work!

Yes I spent some more time with it, and there is SO MUCH good information there, I don't even know where to start. Haven't really found anything I don't agree with so far.

I think he illustrates just how much work and attention to detail goes into the tanks referenced. I've said this before, tanks like that don't happen by accident. Just the discussion on trimming/pruning/replanting/managing plant mass is worth anyone's time.

And that's only one of dozens of similar topics.

Thanks for the link. I found it interesting that he recommends starting with small tank if you are a beginner, contrary to most of what you read today. There are sure some beautiful aquariums shown.

Indeed. I'm going to start linking so many threads that I reply in to him. It's all the good,useful planted tank information from this site, barreport, and current leaders in the hobby all collated and rolled into one place. I've always had issues finding places to link to sometimes so I don't sound like I'm just spouting random crap. Now I have 'references' when I blow my hot air!

Considering you're both "old timers" of this site and highly referenced by members, I'm surprised you two haven't already!

Don't think picking his brain is even needed. It's all right there.
Just spent an hour reviewing his website and there is solid info there.
Expected to see or catch some shortcomings but no.

Personally having a hard time with watching videos so not gone there yet.
Seen too many videos filled with BS in the past.

Could think of many things to add but it would clutter his approach and add too much science and chemistry.
He's on track for a hobbyist level website and keeping the fun in it.

Thanks for sharing the link. I've watched almost all his videos on Youtube, and he definitely has quality, informative content. Like someone else said, I have lots of reading to do.
