Ok so Im here

I've been to the ala maoana center and little fish stores in the area, anyone have a favorite LFS for good deals on a new tank and supplies?

Hey Zach,

You should come to the Honolulu Aquarium Society fish meeting. The next one is on Friday August 5th at 7:00pm (and the first friday of every month for that matter). We meet at the Kuhio Elementary school. It is real close to the University of Hawaii Manoa campus. Basically it is right down university ave (going downhill toward the ocean on university ave) make a left onto king street and it is about 1-2 blocks down on the right hand side.

I have attached an old outdated link but atleast it has directions!

Honolulu Aquarium Society

If you go just ask for me or Aaron and remind us that you are from the planted tank forum. There is a small group of us that visit the forums and a slightly larger group that works with planted tanks. We have alot of plants so if you need anything just ask. Alternatively you can purchase plants or fish at the auction that the meeting has.

Hope to see you there!

Hey Zach,

If you go to the HAS meeting this friday (8/5/05) at 7:00 don't be shy. There are alot of friendly people in the club. We all try to help each other out.

If there are any plants in particular that you want let me know before friday. If I have what you are looking for I will be more than happy to bring some.

yeah Zach, come join us! In fact, everyone is invited! Planted tanks have become really popular here and there are a lot of members with green thumbs. If all the plant guys got together and formed a club, it would be pretty big.
Ken, I won't be attending the mtg so no "super secret goodie bag" in the auction this month. I promise I will make up for it next time

Hey Aaron,

Good thing you told me you weren't attending. I was going to bring you that Glosso you were asking for a while back.

If you still want it let me know. If you are going to the board meeting I can bring it there.

Ken T.

P.S. Damnit! I was really, really looking foward to the "super secret goodie bag"!

Just a question, does anyone have some clippings they would sell ?

haven't really decided on the theme of the new tank yet, but low light.

Thanks in advance
Zach

With high output lights like that you need to kick up your CO2 to equal out the equation. How much are you bubbling in a min?
Could be many thing I guess, thanks anyway

I kinda gave up on my 55g tank, I only do water changes now and feed the fish, I'm gonna throw the plants in my pond that's what I do with all my unwanted plants heh, I'll start up the tank again sooner or later, and btw, I just got a 20g tank today from petland kahala ($42, RIP OFF) oh well, I got a pc light with 2 55w, came with bulbs, got the fixture for $110, not a bad deal and lastly today I got a Aquaclear 200, does 200 gph, I'm happy with my setup so far, I'm going to get substrate next week I hope with the driftwood, wait about 2 more weeks, then start adding plants

What specifically are you looking for?

Pets Unlimited is not closing, their lease is up and are in the process of finding a new home. good riddance to that ghetto location, I don't know how many times I've been offered crystal meth and crack in their parking lot.

that's good news, I probably would've been offered that stuff too if I wasn't 15 and not with my dad when I go there they should move to nuuanu, maybe nuuanu shopping center not sure there are any vacant lots though

When in doubt, take it out!
