    A New SCAPE Fry From The LBC

    Happy Saturday Everyone!

    My name is John, I'm 25, I'm from Long Beach, I've been into planted tanks since March(?) 2014, and I enjoy throwing duckweed out by the net-fulls. I actually discovered SCAPE through random google searches but I wasn't motivated to join until I met some SCAPE members at the 2019 pet expo in OC. I joined the aquascaping contest because I wanted heavily discounted fluval swag and I happened to see the SCAPE booth. So, I finally figured, "why not?" I remember this guy, who was also in the contest, revealed to me how he made a vortex in his barrel. If you see this, your barrel is sick bro!

    I currently have a high tech 20 gallon UNS, a high tech 20 gallon long UNS, and a low tech 5 gallon fluval spec. I'll post pictures since I enjoying looking at other's tanks and I'm you all do too.

    I'm also planning to attend the meet up at Nautilus tomorrow (5/19/19).

    I'm looking forward to meeting you and talking about planted tanks!

    Hahaa! Welcome John!! It was I with the vortex set up. Thanks for the compliment man. I'm glad you were finally convinced to join SCAPE.

    Looks like we have plenty in common... leme see...
    - raised in THE LBC
    - UNS 21 gallon long high tech
    - also discovered SCAPE through some google search
    - entered the pet expo contest for the fluvial set (no illusions of even placing whatsoever)
    - will be attending tomorrow's meet
    - oh yeah, duckweed ends up in my composter by the bucketloads. hehe!

    BTW, your set up in the contest was actually pretty good. Better luck next year!

    See you at the meet.

    Welcome to SCAPE... great pictures! Maybe I don’t have as much in common as victor, but I too shovel out duckweed, had an Afro as a 70s kid, and used to live in the LBC too! Welcome!
