Re: Karen's System? & Conditions in Vancouver BC


I'm new to the list (also new to planted tanks) and I noticed that you are
from B.C. :) Do you live in the Vancouver area?  I was wondering what your
take on our local water is (what are we lacking)?  Also I was wondering (if
you live around Vancouver) if you know of any shops that carry the
materials for PMDD?  Thanks.  Take care & Happy Holidays.
