Central Iowa Hobbyists/Clubs

Hi! I'm going to college in Ames right now, but my family home is also down around Des Moines. With my newfound mobility, I was wondering if there are any good fish/plant clubs around here or even just some other fish/plant nuts that want to chat or trade sometime. Hardly ever bump into people with half the addiction I have and the other day it showed - almost missed a volunteer job when I saw the guy giving me directions had a pretty little Iwagumi on his desk! I'm big on native plants and fishes but I love nearly everything to do with aquariums - was obsessed with fancy bettas, shrimps, you name it at various points.

Sorry I didn't see this sooner man. We have a local club with a lot of people from Ames/Des Moines area.

I missed this too. I'm in Ames and have plants and shrimp to trade/sell. Hard to find good plants locally.
