Subject: Potomac Basin AAT
I'm fairly new to the fish-keeping hobby (having started just six months
ago). I've volunteered to set up a 10 gallon tank in my daughter's
elementary school in Northern Virginia. I'm donating all the materials
volunteering my time for maintenance and upkeep.
I'd like the tank to be stocked with plants and fish native to the
basin, especially the middle to upper Potomac River area.
I've done some research on the Internet and have lists of SAVs found in
Potomac. I'd like to grow some plants emersed as well. If you know of
familiar with the basin have some info, please let me know.
I'd also like to stock the tank with fish native to this area. Smallish
that reproduce easily would be nice, from the perspective of using the
as a teaching tool. It will be located in the science teacher's
so they be learning about local water chemistry, basin ecology, and so
Thanks for any help you can provide!
