About Yourself: Started with a 20 gallon tank full of fancy gold fish about ten years ago, then got into African Cichlids for a while. I was going to start up a salt water reef aquarium untill I saw a beautiful picture of a planted aquarium on the back cover of my Aquarium Usa magasine (2004 Issue) The rest is history.
