I was honored to be able to interview our fellow member and friend, Greggz. He went above and beyond to answer my questions, much like he does here for so many of us.
And it is words, not video! I've bookmarked it so I can sit down and read it all during a quiet eventing. Thanks!
Well done @MiamiArt, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Now I need to check out your other works.
How cool is that ? So nice to finally put a face with the name !! Congratulations @Greggz for being such a great inspiration and mentor to the planted tank community !!!
Thanks @Tiger15 appreciate it!Great interview, good advices and succinct summary of your hobby philosophy. I read your journal when I started my first planted tank 4 year ago, and reread it from time to time. Now I have two, 75g and 125g high tech show tanks.
Your journey matches mine best. Decades of rainbow fish keeping before getting into plants, and equally passionate about fish and plants. As for me, substitute cichlid with rainbow. We demonstrate that dual passion is possible, and heavy bio load and plants can harmoniously coexist.
Yes, keeping fish without plants or keeping plants without fish is much easier. Note that I don’t count neon tetra, rummynose or rasborus favored by aquascapers as real fish. They are cichlid food to me.
