About Yourself: I've had aquariums off & on since I was a kid. Been back into it for the last 2 yrs. Found out I have a green thumb in growing the underwater plants in just all small-medium gravel. Going to change over to a sand and sub bottom next year and try some diff plants. But the fish love the plants and it makes it look more natural. I have to sell them or give them away when I prune about once every 10 days.
