This forum looks great. I presume the colouring as something to do with the whole "grass is greener on the other side"? Well, most of you know me already, but hey, who doesn't like talking about themselves! What I have: a custom made tank, which is quite wide and tall, but not very deep. It houses a variety of plants, but I am not sure what their names are, other then the duckweed that andre so kindly shared with me (lol I see what you meant about the whole taking over thing) I got into aquariums through my bf. Being a jill of all trades and a mistress of none, I actually got him interested in me by talking about his aquarium when I met him. It was only a few weeks later that he realised that I actually had no clue, but by the time he realised to what extent(three years later), I had joined the S.A.A.F.A (South African Aquarium Forum Association) and took over his tank, now knowing more then he does. At the moment I own a couple of livebearers, neon, glowlights, coryies, one sad cardinal and an albino bristlenose. But at the end of this week we shall be getting our second tank (which will be smaller) and on Saturday a sump (courtesy of the Angel Master in Cape Town) and so starts the plan of mass destruction as we demolish a wall cabinet to create a stand and waste our life savings on gravel, water pumps, filters, plants, driftwood fish.....ect ect So the story goes into the world of MTS. Hoping to learn more about the plants so that I can stop wasting money on none-aquarium plants that the LFS loves to sell to me, and actually get some greenery going.
