Nice information there for those venturing in the area. Sad that we have a horrible representation in a state that has an abundance of water and fishkeepers.
I think there is an awesome SW scene, but planted tanks seem to much bigger out West, some might say because of Asain influences but it is a big deal in Europe is seems too. There are some aquatic nurseries here, and commercial breeders, and I think that Florida will be a great hub in the future. We have good vendors like GLA, and some very active and proactive Floridians on this board.
Interested in hearing about Flagler/Palm Coast area and north.
I might venture up into Flagler some point, but it would be hard to justify to the lady a car trip just for my "dork" hobby. Mind you she has so much yarn for knitting and such.
I can tell you of a good LFS in Marteniez Ga lol.
On a side note, Florida is a great place for inspiration. You can go to almost any body of water and find plants and scape ideas.
