    Greetings from the Pacific! I was surfing the web to get some info on basic aquarium care and had to pick up my jaw off the floor when I saw some of the pictures here. The art is amazing. Hopefully my first attempt at aquascaping will be 1/100th as good.

    i visited Kailua Kona last summer, it was INCREDIBLE

    i went to laaloa beach and it was my favorite!! i also went to kahaluu beach too.

    u have nooooo idea how homesick i am of kona even tho i have never lived there. i honestly have to say, my favorite place in the world. i would kill to grow up there, grow a kona coffee plantiation like Greenwell, but i miss it so :(

    what are you planning in the scape?

    Fishman-

    I've lived here for about 3 and a half years now and I've loved every day.

    I adopted a tank by word of mouth. It's free to good home, and has a filter. He also neglected to tell me it had about 8 Fish and was in a serious case of neglect. Now I'm in a mess with Angels, Guppies, and :: shudder :: blue gravel. I'll post some pics after I get it cleaned up a little.

    I went in to my local store and asked about a few things and the employee looked at me like I was speaking Latin or something. Looks like I'll be ordering a lot off the internet

    Welcome Raslad,

    I think it's amazing what members can create with a few aquatic plants and a glass box of water. You hit it on the nail when you call it "art".

    There are some members here with less then a year under their belt who are able to design amazing layouts. Who knows, you might be in the same group! ;)
