    Hi everyone. :;group

    Thought I'd give everyone a hello before I started posting in the rest of the forums. My boyfriend and I have a 20 gallon tank with 5 corydoras. . .he has been around aquariums since he was a kid. I have little to no experience. We are going to be starting a 50 gallon planted tank in the next couple of weeks. I know it's going to be challenging. . .but I'm more then sure we will be able to do it. Plus I prefer real plants over those plastic things.

    Welcome fellow Ontarian ;D

    Good luck with the new 50g project. Even if it will be challenging, it will be fun to do and very rewarding in the end. Whenever you have any doubts or questions, just post on the forums and everyone will be more than happy to help.

    +1 on the real plants idea. Your tank will look amazing.

    For you plants, are you going to get super lights or use the low light plants. I have low light plants (Java moss, anubias, Amazon Sword, and Wisteria) I use Seachem Fluorish because I don't have a CO2 generator (not sure if that's what it's called, but you know what I mean.) I think it helps keep my algae down, and my plants are happy. Someday when my life is less hectic, I'll post pictures.

    aquarist2012 - We have NO SNOW yet!!! :mad:

    Betafish305ca - Hamilton. . .my family were founders of Windsor. Does the last name Marentette(or François Godet (Godé) ) ring a bell? There is a statue with his name on it. :;google lol

    callichma - we are researching the plant tank as we speak. . .looking into all the different plants, lighting, c02 and so on. . .also reading up on what fish would do well in such a tank. Apparently corydoras aren't big on multiple plants in a tank and prefer 2-3 different species. I will keep you updated on what we decide though.

    Hi all.

    So my boyfriend bought me a Betta (Crown Tail) for Christmas Eve. I have him in a 1/2 gallon tank. . .seems to be loving it. I will post pictures in the next few days. He's a beautiful red. In the spirit of Christmas I have named him Scrooge. =D
