    I like it a lot Zoban
    naturally I searched the www, for information on freshwater plants
    but in all honesty I did not come across any site, with as many varieties all in 1 location
    and that fact that it classifies them in terms of lighting needs, makes it a very handy reference guide for anyone looking to create a planted tank

    Yeah I have my old 40 breeder and two 10 gallons sitting around plus will have a 20T empty soon. Really only have space for the 10 or a 20 though.
    We'll see . ::) Technically I still have a 10 that has a bunch of platty fry in it from the parents when I went salt. :D

    Those Glofish seem cool.

    a 55 would be a good size to work with IMO for freshwater planted
    but with twins on the way, you might want to spend the money on quality headphones LOL

    thanks Skyfire the good thing with FW is your not as limited in terms of what you can keep as you are with SW. a 10 gallon planted tank can still contain a few fish and plently of the smaller plant species


    thank you trijam
    I get some quality advice from this site, so its relatively easy for me to get things looking half decent
