any plant geeks in indy?

Just looking for some fellow plant people to trade/but cuttings from and possibly some local fish breeders.

A lot of the LFS in the area leave a lot to be desired.

Hi emurry, I'm from Terre Haute, that's about an hour from indy. Are you involved with the Circle City club? Lots of nice people to trade with there, I wish I were closer and could go to the meetings.

I haven't been to a meeting yet, but plan to go. From what I can gather on the club website, they seem to have a focus on fish, primarily cichlids, and not many plant people...

I also have a reef tank and am actively involved with the marine club here.

Thanks for the tip.

I would be more than happy to swap plants with you. Shipping is quick and not too expensive to Indy. Is there anything in particular you are looking for?

That's ok because I reallly don't have any more room to put any plants. I can send you some riccia. PM me with your address and I'll put it in the mail to you. It shouldn't be more than $2 to send it.

I'm in Upland, IN and hope to make the next meeting in Indy. Can I can attend without being a member?

I recently set up a 55g and may have some cuttings to auction or trade.

I'm in Indianapolis. I'm just starting to get back into aquariums after about 8 years so I can't trade yet, unless pond plants intrest you.

It's probably been 15 years since I was a CCAC member, but you could attend a couple meetings before joining back then. You had to be a member to do the auctions though, something about not collecting taxes if I remember right.
I think I'll look into joining again.

Does the Indianapolis Aquarium Society still exist? I'm south side and they met way up north so I didn't attend their meetings very often.

I went to the CCAC meeting last month, and I loved it. I'd like to join. I'm not much of a plant geek (only have one teeny planted tank), but I have the feeling that I will soon have a LOT of Ilyodon sp. goodeid fry for sale...

Hey guys!

I'm one of the HAP (Horticulture Awards Program) Chairs for the CCAC. I'll try to clear up a few of your questions. I should have joined this forum sooner!

We do a lot of cichlids and livebears, but there are a growing number of plant geeks at the CCAC. We recently started the HAP and have seen great results. I know of at least a dozen people with planted tanks, and our other HAP chair Johnathan Dooley is a long time member of the AGA, runs a pond store, and is personal friends with Amano! There's pics on the website of him with Amano doing a plant tank setup demonstration while Jonathan was visiting Japan to buy koi. I'm a big plant geek myself, and I'm sure it'll only get better once I get out of the apartment I'm living in and get a more perminant place to set up shop! I recently bought an acrylic tank system from a pet store that was going out of business, very excited about getting that up and running.

As for the CCAC - you are free to attend the meetings without being a member, but you have to be a member to participate in the meeting auctions.

***The CCAC is hosting a public auction on April 30th that anyone can attend though. It is at the Holiday Inn in Beach Grove, IN (Emerson Ave. just off of 465 East). Registration begins at 8:00 am and the auction begins at 10:30. The split for sellers is 70/30 or for club members that work at least 4 hours it is 80/20. If you need directions or have any questions, our President Brian Lovins will help you out - 502-376-944.

Here's our homepage: http://circlecityaqclub.org/index.php

A year-long membership is $18 and that gets you access to a great newsletter, raffles and door prizes, monthly auctions, and an immense library. The membership is per household, for those of you lucky enough to have a significant other interested in this hobby.
