Oh and aus, would you like me to finish the substrate guide, I made the bare bottomed portion to see if you liked it. And whether or not I should keep making the rest like it

I could also get pictures of some other plants, I have frogbit, duckweed, water lettuce, micro swords, Anubias, rotala, ludwigia depend, hygro (I'll find the name in a sec), small variety of swords, amazon swords, guppy grass, dwarf sag, and hornwort. If you need pictures on any of those tell me.

I would be willing to do substrates and help with lights and plant pictures. I can try to get underwater pictures of the plants if you would like as well. So just tell me.

I'll hop on the computer and get started with substrates.

Pictures -- yesss!

The lights are beyond me.. I wouldn't know a watt from my butt, so you're welcome to those!

If you're doing substrates, and Mo's already done a barebottom tank bit, you could post them together in one thread? Maybe a mod can help with organising that, so the posts follow one another.

Mo has a lovely barebottom jar. I think Aokashi has some nice pics of their bare-bottom tanks as well..

I have a gravel tank, and gravel and dirt, however you can't see the dirt.

I am familiar with lights now, CFL, T8, T5, LEDs, and metal halide. I am also familiar with the energy the take and the output, as well as the effective ness. I have all those types of lights except metal halide and LEDs, but those are easy to come up with.

I think emailing the documents might be easier, as this the end product will be much too long.

Any fish keepers that have any planted tanks, no fake plants though, please post a picture and your tank may be starred in the completed thread. Thank You!

Mo, what substrates do you have completed? I can do some other ones, and maybe OFL can do a special section on NPTs?

The types of substrate we should include are: bare-bottom, sand, gravel, Eco-Complete type stuff, dirted, and kitty litter ( I know sounds weird, but I have researched it).

W should try to keep it short that way the completed thread doesn't get too long, as it is gonna be a guide and some people may not like to read pages lol.

We actually have a planted tank thread going:

http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=104894

So of any nice plants shot turn up there, you could ask permission? But yes, member plant photos are very welcome here, too! Wish I had better than an iPhone to take pics with ><

Dunno about email.. you may have to ask a mod for thiers, or maybe post it up in peices, dunno how that works.. maybe PM them and ask? Get co-ordinated with Mo to share the thread? You guys can work it out. =P

Mo, are you okay to a post on barebottom tanks? Please use your little planty jar as a pic! So lovely..
