Hey everyone! I thought I should finally make a thread formally introducing myself.
Well, to start, my name is Umar. Most people know me for selling plants on these forums to fellow members and hobbyists, but I wanted to show different sides of me as an individual.
Me and the best buddy
My sister's and good friend's high school graduation with all my close friends
I'm a 20 year old college student living in California. I'm a Computer Science major, currently in my sophomore year of classes.
I have an affinity and interest for many things, but my first love will always be electric guitar - been playing for almost 4 years and I think it will stick we me for the rest of my life. Here's a quick snippet or two of my playing:
I also love planted tanks. Bettas came first, but I couldn't imagine life without the aesthetics and benefits of live plants. So, that pushed me further into the hobby as I soon acquired enough different species of plants and high tech equipment to plant far more tanks than I have right now - which led me to sell them to members over here. That's worked out well so far :P
Oh, and I also bred bettas. My first spawn is now 15 weeks old and although I havent updated for weeks, I got about 10-12 GREAT looking fish (both males and females) from the 36 I raised to adolescence. Pics will come soon ;)
Here are some pics of my tanks: I run active co2 on three of them - all are high light. I also love shrimp as much as bettas, since I have a colony of 100+ in my 20 long tank.
Here are pics of my stuff:
Please feel free to comment, ask, or just plain ol' say hello!
