    Hi guys. My name is Kevin and I reside in Midrand, Gauteng. I am a complete green horn when it comes to planted aquariums but was inspired to try the hobby after stumbling across this forum. I have been keeping freshwater fish for the past year but that was pretty much gravel with a few plastic plants. I just started putting together a low tech 2ft tank with a potting soil substrate. I have reached the point of now deciding which of the suitable plants i should plant and will hopefully have a mini ecosystem in the near future. I look forward to your advice and guidance. Cheers.
