first time native fish keeper
Posted 01 November 2014 - 06:24 PM
I just wanted to introduce myself. I have been keeping aquariums on and off for many years, usually tropical fish, heavily planted. Recently, I started looking into keeping fish from north America, specifically my home state of VA. I have decided to keep pumpkinseed sunfish in my new 75 gallon corner flow aquarium.
Because this is my first time keeping these fish, I hope to learn a lot from all the veterans here. I haven't decided what I will do for plants yet, but my substrate will be a potting soil capped with pool sand and lots of various sizes pebbles and stones from the river. I also have some large driftwood pieces to put in there.
I need to research what plants are native to lakes and rivers in VA.
Well, there you have it. I look forward to interacting with you guys.

I took your advice. No soil in this tank. I decided to get some lsmocote and make root tabs for the plants.
