Hello Fellow Fish People

Hi everyone, just found your site today. I am on a few other sites as well that are aquarium related such as The Planted Tank, My Fish Tank, Aquatic Plant Central, and Aquarium Malta. I frequent The Planted Tank the most and the others whenever I get the urge. Now enough about that!

My name is James. Im 17 and homeschooled, which means alot of time on here and The Planted Tank. I am in Sacramento and use to attend the Sacramento Aquatic Plant Society but have gotten quite busy. I have Petsmart and the store Fish Planet closest to me. As far as that, I use to have worked at Fish Planet maintaining the Aquatic Plants.

Right now I am in the midst of creating biotopes. I have a 10g that measures out to 20"Lx10"Dx12"H and another 10g bowfront tankthat measures to 13.75"L(Back)/14"L(front)x13.5"Dx12.75"H. Im going to recreate a Mekong River Biotope with Betta Splendens, SAE, Slim Harlequin Rasbora, Tiger Lotus, Green Hygro, Giant Hygro, Cryptocryne crispulata, Cryptocoryne affinis, Watersprite, and Onion Plant. I also will recreate a Central American Biotope with Variatus, Guppy, Platy, and Molly.

I also have 2 Parakeets and a Cockatiel. So I hope I can elp you guys as much as I can get help from you.

~James~

Welcome to AA. We have a great planted tank section.
I would love to see pics of your tanks and your birds. I have a 27 year old CAG.
