    Hi Everyone

    Eugene, I'm new to the planted aquarium, just setup my first planted tank. Previously only fish and plastic decoration but after seeing images of Nature Aquariums I was hooked, finally took the dive in after many months of research.

    So glad this site exists as it's been one of my primary sources for research the last few months.

    P.S.: from Cape Town where finding aquarium plants is not the easiest.

    Regards,
    Eugene

    Why only then? We are here to help, maybe some of the experts will be able to give you tips :)

    @Trev Pleco sells a variety of plants, panorama petshop usually has a good variety and @shihr has a large online shop with great quality and prices, very affordable :D
     
    Trev Pleco and shihr like this.
