Comments

I have worked in the hobby for almost 9 years, and I have kept almost every kind of aquarium you can keep, but have mainly focused on reef tanks especially coral propagation. I have never really tried to keep a full blown planted tank, so it was time to try. So far I absolutely love it. Please understand that I am currently experimenting with as many species as possible to see what grows best in my care. All I have right now are bad cell phone pics, but i hope to fix that soon
