Corey Wickliffe will host our January 28th meeting at 1:00pm in Falls Church, VA. Viktor Gyorffy will talk about Planted Tanks for Beginners. Viktor Gyorffy has been keeping planted tanks since he was five years old. He started with gravel for substrate, either sponge filters for filtration or no filtration at all, no fertilizing of any type and very few water changes, and only a few types of easy to grow plants that did well for him. By now, he uses mostly mineralized topsoil substrate, has various types of filtration, adds root tabs and CO2 to his tanks, and keeps a large variety of plants.
