My name is John and I have had aquariums for many years. I currently run a 125-gallon reef tank which has been running since 1998. This will be my first planted tank. I have been perusing the local forums and have gleaned so much information from them. I just came across this forum and I must say, this is the most active and the conversations, in my opinion, cover the most current topics in the Hobie. I am looking forward to learning as much as I can while planning my new planted tank.
