Mostly a plant guy

My "main" hobby is growing nepenthes pitcher plants and other carnivores like sarracenia and fly traps. Freshwater tanks are pretty fun too, but getting them balanced is tricky.

Maybe a little underwhelming, but my goal is to have a peaceful planted community with Atya gabonensis as a centerpiece.
Maybe shrimp aren't centerpieces, but I love those filter feeders!

Hello Geo...

I'm heavily into plants as part of the aquarium set up. Specifically, as a water filtering system in place of the mechanical kind. I use the plants to balance the water chemistry, so they provide the fish with near pure water conditions.

Welcome!

I second the recommendation for Rachel's channel: she has some neat bog plant setups.
