    Decided to sign up after using the site as reference to set up my 1.2m 650 by 500 planted tank.ive been into fishkeeping on and off for the past 21 years and have done everything from freshwater to malawis and saltwater fish only to fully stocked reef tanks.After a break of a couple of years i decided to start up again and wanted to do something that i havent tried before.so i jumped on the net and the rest as they say is history.im using normal gravel as a substrate for now,with a 250 watt jager heater.303 fluval canister and one small powerhead for circulation.i started out by planting heavily and plan to have mostly hardy plants.got a bit of drama going on in the tank at the moment as i have a bout of ich that im treating at the moment.im treating with salt and heat.some of the plants havent taken too nicely to the salt.i have two golden gouramis(chowing my plants),one paradise fish and five rummynose tetras(one succumbed to the ich).oh and i just started using CO2 last week after buying a kit from gumtree.if anyone wants to collect the gouramis for free you are welcome to do so.will post pics soonest though im still in the building phase.Sjoe!so thats my long winded intro.looking forward to many days of sharing.
