Hi Miles,

A lot of our GSAS members are into planted tanks and creating biotopes. As a result, in addition to our other internationally known speakers like Ad Konings (cichlids) and Gary Lange (rainbowfish), GSAS has hosted some excellent planted aquarium speakers in the last few years including Tom Barr (The Barr Report), Karen Randall (AGA), Ghazanfar Ghori (crypts), Luis Navarro (aquascaping), and Oliver Lucanus (biotopes). Most of our speakers have graciously allowed us to video record (most recently in Blu-ray) their presentations and they are available to our members on DVD from our GSAS Library or via BitTorrent download from our website.

Exotic plants you asked? At our 'mini-auction' after the meeting last Tuesday evening there were Erios, Pogostemon (3 species including erectus and helferi), Ludwigia sp 'Red', HC, Alternanthera reineckii 'rosaefolia', Limnophila (3 species including 'mini'), Rotalas (3 or 4 species), and a multitude of others. If you want to chat plants and fish with local northwest folk (and some of our past speakers) check out 'airstone', you don't have to be a member to chat. Of course there is the GSAS Facebook page but it is pretty quiet compared to 'airstone'.
