    Hi keith All i is in my location is the country.

    i haven't done any major scape yet. I've only been in the hobby for about 5 month. spend most of the time learning about plants. and boy did i get brain stormed reading,watching videos, about plants. plant types, plant handling, plant demands and needs, proper lighting, substrate, filtration, fert, algae control, aquascpaing, i find all this very interesting. its quiet hard for me cause i don't know any one personally that is in to aquascaping. so i'm taking it slow and started testing a few species of plants and fish. just to get the feel. it would suck setting up a major scape and fail. I'm in to DIY and doing it cheaply hehehe. here some of my projects. and my testing tank. the empty tank project is paused now. the just gave birth to our youngest, hehe

    Looking at the map the Philippines has many towns.

    The reason for filling that is there could be another member from the Philippines in or close to your town.

    Other than that big white rock and all those little white chips its a very nice aquascape for a beginner.

    The Cabinet is excellent for a DIY.

    Nice Tank man... I see you're from Manila, Pasig City... You're lucky man there's plenty of LFS where you can buy Plants, Rocks, Driftwoods, etc where you're from

    If ever you're in Baguio there's another pet shop/ LFS located at Abanao Street the building at the left beside Security Bank. Going to Shagem Street. They also sell Plants and good fishes too... Last time I checked they have rummy nose tetras, Harlequin Raspboras, Neon tetras, Black Neon Tetras, Penguin Tetras etc all schooling and peaceful fishes suitable for a planted tank.

    i have Been there many times. great place not only for pet and aquarium stuff. but the prices are a bit higher than cartimar pet shops. some LFS here in pasig are selling at a high price. cheapest stuff they sell here. are plants some sell for 25 to 35 pesos a pot. (wonder who there supplier is) if ever you are in pasig try troika pets. service is really great. and its run by aquatic hobbyist so they really know there stuff. and the fishes are really healthy.

    Are you sure you want that many plants in your tank?

    Converting 10 Pesos =
    AU$00.30
    Euro EUR 19
    US $00.20

    Are they established plants or seedlings?
