So far jczernia, Zinfin and myself are confirmed to be there. However times have not yet matched. Let one of us know (PM) what time works for you. BTW, I am thinking of having a separate meeting just between this group and do some plant swaps at that time. But that is up to you all.

All - some of us are interested to meet up at the GCCA swap meet on Dec 5. However timings are not matching/confirmed yet. I think apart from the swap meet, we should meet separately as well.

Anyways, most of the communication between us is thru PMs only and via me. To open it up a bit, I will be creating a group (I'll name it for now to begin with and then we can decide what our group name should be and change it) and create some discussion threads in it on some of the open questions/suggestions I have heard so far.

I usually go to Aquarium Adventure in Hoffman Estates. That's where somebody suggested me to try out GCCA swaps for cheaper prices and probably higher volumes of some of the fish I was looking for.

This sound like a great idea. I would love to join but the only thing is I don't know how active I can be since we expecting a new addition to the family in January, I also don't drive which makes things even more difficult

I would be in as well. Cant believe I missed this thread. I cant even get into contact with CAGA. The only thing ive found is their yahoo group, and my yahoo account is messed up from a hijack about a year ago. I have plenty to share with a group like this.

Welcome mommy to be. Congrats! For the fore see-able future you will probably have a busy and exciting time but you are welcome to participate in whatever capacity you can.

Chad - see you are a bit far off but so is hydrophyte. Welcome in and hopefully we will see you in some of our meetings.

I will invite you both to our group.

Yeah we need to do it. I'll start a thread on it for people to submit a logo and then vote it out.
