Hello everyone! My first post here. Might as well do a little introduction. My name is Jonathan and I'm a 13 year old boy from Orlando, FL. My main hobby is fishkeeping, well anything to do with fish/inverts really. I mainly keep native fish, such as bluegill, bass, sunfish, various minnows, and catfish. Anyways, I'm finally taking a dive into live plants. Which is something I've never really done before. And what's a better way to do that than start a simple planted shrimp tank? I'm astounded of the tanks people have on here. I never really looked at aquascaping as a big part of fishkeeping, something I missed out on big time. I'm pretty much new to the whole concept...now I see that it's really an art. I'm clueless about the scientifcal names. I mean, I keep ants. I know every genus and species. Lasius niger, Dorymyrmex, Attas, Brachymyrmex, etc....But I finally know what it feels like to have no idea what the other person is talking about, heh. A little off topic there, as I was saying I'm taking a dive into freshwater dwarf shrimp, as well as plants. My tank is...err, embarrasing compared to everyone else's. I mean you guys make your 10 gallons look like 30 gallons. I only have some anacharis, and well....some kind of water grass I got from the creek. But I'll be honored to learn from all of you. Though it may take some time. Mostly because everything I do revolves around whether my parents allow it, or buy it, or whatever. But hey, I'm 13. Sooo that ends it...a little...long, but oh well. I'll be lurking around here even if I don't post, happy fish/plant keeping!
