Hello my name is John. I live in North Carolina US. I have kept salt water most of my life. Do to me working full time and going to school full time I just got into fresh water. I recently turned my 144g half circle from a reef to a cichlid tank. I want to add plants to it that cichlids wont eat, like onion plant. I also want to turn my 100g cylider tank into a planted tank also. Im completely new to freshwater and planted tanks. I look forward to chating with all of you.
