A visit with Lowcoaster

Most of you have probably heard of him, provides plants to a ton of folks via the Classifieds here and on Aquabid.

I had the opportunity to visit him at his home today. No particular reason, just to catch up on some things. I managed to come home with some nice crypts (not that I was looking for them but they looked so sweet I had no choice).

I decided to share his fishroom with everyone (he managed to squeeze himself into the pic somehow).

Oh, the crypts I got were: C. parva and C. willisii.

Try to imagine a room with @ 40 tanks of varying sizes with plants of every description in them. It is worth the visit believe me.
