    Hi All

    I love planted tanks and tiger barbs, I have recently started with my tank so I'm kinda of a newbie and I'm loving it. I have attached pictures of my tank.

    I'm from Bloemfontein currently looking for nice plants and maybe some drift wood. Don't be shy to suggest websites.

    Welcome to APSA, you will learn a lot here. You can lookup betterweather for plants once Richard is back in the country.

    Ask all the questions you have, here are bound to be someone with an answer.

    Thanks for the warm welcome, I'm hoping to learn a lot. I had a look at betterweather the seems to be under construction, I guess I will have to wait.

    Welcome to APSA! Like said before, Betterweather is the way to go. There are a few other people from "The States" if I'm not mistaken, who will also be willing to help you out, I'm sure.
