Yo!

I live in Berlin NJ. Originally from Philly... where I still work.

I have a 29 gallon tank. Changing over to a planted tank. Currently have 3 guppies, 4 Rio Tets, 5 Neons. 1 Upside down cat. A few Oto's.

Fish are doing well.

Current plants are just "hanging on"... not dying, but not really doing well. Need to change substrate fron current black gravel to Flourite Brown... which I've had for a while... just haven't done the changeover.

Badly need to upgrade lighting from current 18 watt t4 in hood. Still researching that. Looking at HO T5 96w.

Welcome to AA. You live close to me. I am only about....10 minutes away from the bridge to philly. It sounds like you have nice tank going on. Good job.
