Aquatic Concepts is worth the drive. They don't seem to have rare or unusual plants, but they have a good selection of fish and catch them without a net, which is nice.

Hobbists in Maine Lets get together and make a club. I'm tring to find as many people as possible to make a network. That way as hobbists we can get the really good plants, fish and corals! My plants have grown and done things I would have never expected. When people really see how easy and beautiful planted tanks could be, they will want one.

So how's that going for you? I'm going to take a stab and say that you and I are the two members of said club?

I've thought about seeing if some of the local chain pet stores would let me set up a display tank in some of their stores in the interest of fostering some interest in nature aquarium planted tanks, get people to realize here that saltwater isn;t the only way to go for beauty in an aquarium.

Let me get MY tanks going first though before I start trying to put tanks out and about...lol

Chris

FINALLY!!! I actually have some planted tanks!!

Portland here too, good to hear there are more people here that are into planted tanks...


Would be down to start a group here but I can't promise how much time I could devote to it, lol but with 2 members sounds like there wouldn't be too much time required.


Looks like there are a couple people here, I know there are a lot of aquarium people here but not a whole lot of serious ones, and then those are mostly saltwater people.


What do you have for tanks?

FINALLY!!! I actually have some planted tanks!!

I don't think I'd really ask for more than perhaps a monthly meeting, I think it would be a good resource!
