I'm glad I found you

Hello,

It's nice to know a community like yours exists. I am new to aquariums and newer to planted aquariums. My first "aquarium" was taking fish from a stream in my backyard and putting them in the 55 gal. rain barrel my grandmother kept in Costa Rica. I did not visit this hobby until my son was about to be born and the nesting instinct demanded a fish tank along with an underwater themed nursery. Now I'm trying to take it to the next level and make the tank more about the plants and less about the fish.

Here's a link to short video of my tank:

YouTube - Platys et al

Thank you.

Phyto..
Nice plant, a long way better than mine, but give me time !
Not wishing to 'pair you off' with anyone particular, but strangely just been looking at another newbie insert who could probably do with your help.
Take a look for Joemonk...
