    Hi all!

    ...Wow, I'm really bad at intro posts. Let's see...I got my first aquarium at age 8, and have been poking around with them on and off ever since. I've done everything from a 2 gallon hex to a 125 saltwater...everything except one thing. Plants. That all changed earlier this year, and after having to scrap an entire tank cursed with ridiculous amounts of BBA, among other problems I decided to start over and did a LOT of homework...

    ...which led me here, lol. So hi, from a complete newbie!

    Hello Jilrae,

    Welcome to the forum. You did good with introductions. How big is your planted tank? Maybe you can start a journal of the build so others can follow along and maybe offer more knowledgeable advice.

    Thanks for the warm welcomes :) Right now I'm running a 46g bowfront with some siryu stone, and what will be two large pieces of driftwood. (the second is still soaking) I've got some val, an amazon sword, a java fern windelov, dwarf lily, dwarf tiger lily/lotus thing, a few anubias nana, a recent addition of a bunch of microswords, some dwarf sag that I've misplaced in a pile of microswords, and a madagascar lace that's secretly plotting to take over the world. (that one grows fast...) Running the fluval plant 3.0, and just dosing 1x/week with easy green, and every other day with easy carbon.

    Thank you! A bunch of amanos, some ghost shrimps, oto cats, cories, a bristlenose pleco, a school of cardinal tetras (and one neon with species identification issues, schools with the cardinals he came by mistake with), endlers, dwarf chain loaches (loveable puppies!) and Oswald the Betta.
