    Some of you might remember me from back in 2008, a cocky student with absolutely no knowledge about fish, plants, or much else really. I have learned so much from APSA and the old SA Fish Forum about keeping fish and aquatic plants.

    I had a very small case of MTS, got married and infected my wife, but had to move to a smaller apartment, so up for adoption went 4 tanks, a rat snake and a yorkie.

    In the meantime we had some guppies without life plants, but they just didn't grab our attention.

    So, starting this weekend, we are crawling back into tanks and plants, 2ft 60L tank for now, as the months progress we will be starting a DIY project of building a 3ft wide tank where the 60L inhabitants will move over.

    Our main attraction will be angels, hopefully I can get a couple of healthy golden angels, otherwise some other var will do. With them a school of cardinals. I opted for bristlenoses as I can get a bunch for very cheap, but wifey doesn't like them so much... so a pleco or otto's will go in there as well.

    Plants wise, will have a look at what I can get from friends and shops until the tank is stable, but will definitely add some vallisineria and limnophila (sp?).

    Regards,
    Chris (Chemical Engineer / Programmer) and
    Esré (Math/Sci teacher)

    Asian Ambulia is Limnophila sessiliflora. Did not know it. I see now it is blaclisted, I'm sure the last time I kept it it wasn't. Oh well, will find something else for that spot then
