About Yourself: I first got into planted aquariums about seven years ago after my plant ravaging silver dollars died. I gave up the hobby for a few years after a move, and am just getting back into it. I'm fascinated by the Amazon and this tank started out as an Amazon biotope, but i've kind of moved away from that. Unfortunately i live in an area with very hard water and mostly like soft water species so i filter through peat granules and use 1/2 RO water in all water changes.
