  1. Hey everyone, My name is Caleb, and I am 25 years old. I personally have taken a love to aquascaping and easily ran out of room in my apartment. I live in the Brisbane CBD and I'm interested in helping others in the hobby. This can be from: - Aquascaping display tanks from the ground up - Supplying plants/livestock - Maintenance - to simple wisdom on algae/plant growth I've acquired from others and experience over time. Simply put, if I could grow gills and swim in aquariums, I would. Every day I just want to talk about the hobby. The tanks I have created personally in the attached image are 1 + 5 (left to right) and I would love to attempt to replicate/create some world class scapes. We can all dream big, and we can take that journey together. Feel free to contact me at anytime. Thanks, Caleb P.S. Please contact me if this is breaching any forum rules (mods)
