I've used this forum a couple times to answer some specific planted tank questions, but never became a member. A little about myself...
I have 3 tanks, a 29, 10, and 1.5, all of which are dirted and follow the "walstad" method. All are low-tech, and have very little maintenance.
I got into aquariums a little over a year ago, when i studied the walstad method. So far, i've had great success with it. I recently completely tore down my 29, and started over because i had too many snails, some annoying algae, and wanted a new scape.
I've played piano for 8 years, I like to play volleyball and go surfing, and i enjoy listening to rock music (hardcore stuff usually).
As far as this tank goes, this is a picture of the day i started it. It's been a little over 2 weeks, and so far it hasn't changed much, since all the plants are recuperating. I'm hoping the valls will cover the filter soon, what do you think of my scape?
