    Hi Guy's
    I'm from Perth, Aus and brand new to aquascaping.
    I got into it because my daughter no longer wanted her tank so i went to the LFS for some fish and was blown away by their tanks and wanted t ogive it a try.
    Anyway my first one is 70 litres and i kinda just slapped it together so it's nothing overly impressive.
    My second tank is an ADA i think about 20 litres. i got it second hand and have replanted it. Just waiting for it to take off so i can trim up the mc.
    Once i can keep everything alive for a while i'll upgrade to a larger tank and actually try to build a nice scape.
    I'm running LED's and CO2 and am sure to have loads of questions.

    Thanks for having me!!

    Did the storms effect you in the last few days?

    Both of those tanks look very professional you certainly have a good eye for design.

    Hi Keith

    We did get a bit of a flogging from that storm but other than a pool full of leaves and sticks we got off pretty well damage free luckily.
    Thanks for the welcome.
    Cheers

    Sounds like you were lucky then.

    What is the LFS situation in Perth or are you out in the suburbs?
    Are there restrictions on plants/fish coming into the state?

    Yeah WA has pretty tough quarantine laws as far as I'm aware but not sure around specific import laws.
    I'm lucky enough to be just around the corner from the perth aquarium and display centre and those guy's have a great range of plants and livestock, they've also got plenty of good advice thankfully!!
    It was their store that made me want to start up as their display aquariums are top notch.

    That is always a good start finding a good LFS
