    Hi everyone

    Johan Gertzen and I exchanged a few plants and a tank recently and he introduced me to APSA, thanks Johan!

    I got a few mosquito fish from my mother in law to try a similar aquaponic system she just started. That went on for about a week when I started thinking whether the fish had enough air. So I went of to the LFS and bought the air pump... Then a month later I had two new tanks and a million or so fish. This was about 20 months ago. So now I still have two tanks but it's the plants that got my attention over time and must say it is just amazing.

    Current favourite plants is probably anubias barteri nana, fissidens, various crypts and eventually HC (only getting it to grow now). Wish list at the moment is pogostemon helferi but I know someone who know someone who have some and is not willing to share, swak.

    Looking forward to explore this forum!

    Cheers
    Philip
