    Hi all - Dave from Somerset West here.

    I've been spending a lot of time lurking on a few local forums trying to gain as much knowledge and information on aquariums, fish and plants as possible.

    I'm not entirely new to the hobby having had my own fish bowls and tanks for most of my childhood, but taking it up again recently have realized that there's a lot more to it than putting some fish in a glass box and making sure that they don't go hungry. Also still trying to get my bearings on the best pet/aquarium shops in the Cape because I've only been here for a year and a half now, having moved from Durban.

    I'm currently in the middle of setting up a 3 foot tank that will be home to a few of smaller species of fish that I can get my hands on (final list still to be decided). I'll also be trying my hand at getting some plants and moss growing.

    Looking forward to learning a lot more from everyone here.

    Cheers,

    Dave
