    Hi Everyone!

    I am Richard a 23 year old tropical fish keeper from up north (West Yorkshire) and I have kept fish for around 3 years now.

    I started out with two fancy goldfish and quickly turned my attention to tropical and planted tanks, and I now run a 72 litre planted tank with the hopes of setting up a nano shrimp tank in the near future (if my partner lets me have another tank set up).

    I have kept plants in the aquarium since I started really but more recently have started to properly research and really plan my aquarium around the aesthetics of the plants and hard-scape, which has lead me to delve into the world of Iwagumi!

    I am currently transforming my 72 litre into an Sanzon-Iwagumi and going through the process of finding materials to make it possible.

    I just bought a new External Ehiem Ecco Pro 130 and have a Aquael Leddy Slim plant on the way to upgrade my equipment.

    I have some ADA Amazonia on the way too and so just need to find the hard scape materials and plants (I am thinking Hemianthus Callitrichoides 'Cuba') and I am ready to go!

    I might be posting to ask for a few tips along the way and I will post my updates as I go.

    Wish me luck!

    Richard

    Welcome. Consider starting a journal, it's often the best way to get the help you need and post updates as well in one tidy package;)
