    hello from apple valley

    im new to planted tanks and was inspired to start one because of this site! I have had fish my whole life, from freshwater to saltwater. I love watching my fish, it kinda gives you a calmness just watching the little fish swim about and do their thin ya know...

    only down size to this hobby is where i live! I live in the high desert, in apple valley which is next to hesperia and victorville and about 30 minutes south of barstow off of the 15 frwy....everyone passes through on there way to Vegas but nobody knows the actual cities names...lol. So living in the middle of a desert and not having a huge population means very few fish stores so varities of fish and plants are small.

    But i love this site and im learning so much just buy browsing through the forums!!

    Welcome to SCAPE. You will be able to get all of the plants that you want/ need from SCAPE members through the mail so the lack of fish stores is not a big deal.

    Hello Isom! Welcome to SCAPE!

    haha, I actually do know where Apple Valley is. I passed by there a few times during my childhood when we went up to Big Bear (the back route). I also have a friend from college who was from Hesperia.

    See you around!

    Welcome Isom, don't let the distance scares you. I can always bring you some welcoming plants when I go to Vegas again and only if you let me use your restroom haha.

    Welcome, Isom! To reiterate, don't let the distance scare you. It may be possible to even meet you in Barstow to drop of plants on my way to Vegas since I go with my family often. =) Look forward to your contributions to our discussions...

    Welcome to the club Isom! YOU will find everybody here very accommodating and plants friendly as you can tell with their posts. Two-three hour drive to a meet in LA wouldn't be so bad as they will be all worth it. See you around

    So does anyone have some dwarf baby tears or similar to give me a nice carpet or grass look for the foreground?
