    Hello,

    My name is Adam of AC Aquatics. I've been keeping and breeding fish like the true fish addict that I am for the past 3 years but have had at least one tank in my life for the past 17 years. It wasn't until I had a back surgery that went badly in 2015 that I got heavy into keeping planted tanks. After being diagnosed with Arachnoiditis which is a very rare incurable neurological disease I became addicted to opiates and alcohol. I was suffering from depression and addiction and all while dealing with the severe chronic pain that my disease causes. I entered a rehab facility on June 16 2015 and have been clean and sober since. My addiction to fish and planted tanks has helped save my life and giving me a new outlook on life. These days I have over 20 tanks with all of them being planted and until just recently they were all low tech. I just bought my first pressurized CO2 system and I'm completely blown away with the difference it has made. I hope to learn from this forum and continue to grow in the hobby. Thank you for letting me share a little bit of my story and how fish tanks have saved my life.

    I have just reached 300 subscribers on my YouTube channel and I am going to do a video on how I got into fish keeping and share my story on how fish keeping helped save my life. I would be grateful if anyone would like to check it out. I'm working on the video now and it will be ready later this week. I hope that by sharing my story that it will inspire or give someone that might be going through hard times with depression, drug or alcohol addiction, or struggles with a disability a little hope and know that they are not alone. I hope to see some of you there and as always...Do what you do if it works for you, Adam
