    Hello Everyone! I learned about this board from Anthony when I bought some Endlers from him.

    All in all, we've got 7 tanks of freshwater fish, all planted, two of them filtered only by plants. (We'd have more, but we're in an apartment and the former dining room is out of outlets ;) ) A herd of Tiger Barbs terrorize our 30 gal along with several Cory Trilineatus, and I don't know how they get any food. Scarlet Badis (dario dario - very cool!!) have a natural 20 gal to themselves with some Cory Nanus that only come out at night. Our pride & joy 20 gal has Praecox rainbows, Kubotai Rasboras and Amano shrimp, plus an obnoxious Siamese algae eater. There's a natural 10 gal has Cherry Shrimp & Ember Tetras. There's another 10 gal tank that I call the "grassland," because it's planted with all Potamogeton Gayi, which the Endlers really dig. The 4 gal has a female Betta Splendens; and a 6 gal is currently being dry-started to give the HC a jump on growing. My bf Rob has a case of what he calls "collector-itis" due to us having about 40 types and varieties of plants. He's amazing with the underwater gardening, and the tanks look great. Our dream is to have a house with a big fish-room.

    I'm a Michigander living in Auburn Hills. As for work, we do administrative duties in a call center, nothing glamorous. I work at a clothing store weekends for fun. We're fans of combing Salvation Army stores, where I find weird knick-knacks and he gets super-hero teeshirts. I'm extremely fond of cats, but can't have one in the apartment. Our 3rd floor deck is full of potted flowers & one topsy-turvy sporting a tomato plant.

    Thanks for having me! Mynxy

    Welcome! That sounds wonderful, I'd love to see all your tanks! :) As I'm quite a plant freak too, but my goldfish don't quite allow me to have all the lovely kinds I would ;)

    Thanks Nossie! I'm working out how to do the picture thing. Since you're in Finland, can you say 'hi' to my mom in Sweden?

    Mynxy: Is she living in Sweden or just visiting? :) I have some relatives there, so maybe I could do it with telepathy! :D

    Nossie: Mom's been living in Borlange (3 hours outside of Stockholm) for about 8 years now with a gentleman she met online. She's now a Swedish-American citizen and going to University. Smart Mommy :) Her bf was born in Finland - small world?

    Nossie & Greenteal52: Thank you! Hope you didn't mind the camera-phone quality of the shots :)
