    Hi, I bought a Fluval V for my kids to keep a few fish in a couple years ago, and now I'm the one who's hooked.


    I've purchased a 40 breeder and currently in a process of getting everything together to start my first real planted tank.


    Anyway, I just wanted to say "hey."

    Welcome:) This is a great source of information for anything ya need to know. Biggest advice I can give is to plan plan plan. Get everything ya need together and don't skimp cause you'll end up buying what you originally wanted anyway. Lighting and substrate is where I skimped and it was a big regret. Best of luck to ya!

    Thank you for the warm welcome! I'm working on "mineralizing" some topsoil at the moment. I have purchased some inert fine gravel to cap with, but I've also purchased some Aquasoil like product (Controsoil from Amazon) to put on top of that, if necessary, to put plants at higher elevation. My plans/vision are just all in my head and nothing has been put to real life use, but we'll see how it goes. Again, thank you for the nice welcome. I'm hoping to put some pics in the near future when I actually start putting it all together.
