Hello aqua fanatics! My name is Brad and I'm from Western Australia. I live about an hours drive south from the capital, Perth. It's a pretty place. The population is small, so nature hasn't been ruined (not too much). I've had fish tanks since I was a kid, but only got into planted tanks about 4 years ago. I currently have a Mini M, a Cade 1ft and a Cade 2ft. In the coming months I hope to start a 4ft shallow tank (120x40x37 is what I’m thinking). From memory I’ve done 13 planted scapes. But, as typical I guess, only my last 3 or 4 have been any good. I’ve entered iaplc once (2014) and really surprised myself with a rank of 299. Which was amazing considering it was a just 1ft shrimp tank (no fish). This year 2 of my friends entered iaplc for the first time and both ranked in the top 100! They are amazing and I hope to learn more from them. I'm on a few forums. I joined here about a week ago. I look forward to thoroughly exploring ASW. Already I see some mega talent. I had some tech difficulties signing up, so thanks to greenfinger 2 and jurijs for helping me out. And a pic, we all love pics. This is my 2ft as of a week ago. On the weekend I added little bits of monte carlo, hc and glosso. And 20 ember tetras were placed in the tank the other day too.
