    I keep ending up here when I google stuff so I might as well make an account. Haha.

    I got my first tank a few years ago, after seeing a big tank of GloFish at a pet expo. So I bought a 29g, a light with blue LEDs, some GloFish danios and albino corys... and then I fell in love with planted tanks. Lol. Did the DIY co2 for a bit, but got lazy. The light wasn't strong enough to grow some of the plants that I wanted. Worse, when I went on vacation for like 2 weeks, my friend misunderstood the feeding instructions... and my tank has been plagued by algae ever since. After dumping a lot of money down the drain, I kinda lost interest for a while.

    Recently decided to downsize and start again, so now I also have a 15g that I'm running, with a better light, and pressurized co2. I'm down to 1 lone danio still hanging in there somehow, and 6 amano shrimps, all waiting to get moved over once I get the new tank settled. (Ran into yet another vacation/algae disaster, but I'll make a separate post about that later.) Eventually I'm planning to get a school of cardinal tetras and some shrimps. Possibly some pygmy corys.

    I'm hoping to grow some more interesting plants this time around, though so far it hasn't been going well... I like a lot of red plants, and I've definitely hopped onto the buce bandwagon as well. Looking forward to learning as much as I can here to help me take better care of my plants!
