Well my title probably is confusing... basically I adopted keeping aquariums from my dad at a very young age. I quickly upsized from bowls, to his 5 gallon, to his 10 gallon, to purchasing a 20 gallon of my own which I've had for some time. Only recently (upon graduating college and having more free time and disposable income) have I allowed the hobby to really take off. I dismanteled the aquarium this summer to plant it and am having fair success so far. Overall things are going smoothly but I am certainly learning plenty and am planning many upgrades for the near future... mostly better lighting so I can expand my plant species selection.
Super excited to learn and to share experiences with other aquarists!
