Any members from Annapolis area??

Just wondering if there were any plant geeks in the area?? I'm in Churchton just 20 minutes south of Annapolis on the Chesapeake Bay.

Hurricane Irene left my house with no power and led to the death of this tank. R.I.P. Piranhas.

Wow, I'm glad you guys chimed in but that's apretty poor show from Maryland, I guess this reflects the poor selection of retailers here now, even some of the best stores are gone with petsmartco sucking up any scraps.

Gringo I'm surprised those Piranha left your Mom any plants at all, but I enjoyed looking.

Martin, were are your pics???

I guess I'll have to man up now and put a link to my cr@ppy journal in my signature.

Another for Churchton here. Didn't expect that, really. Though I'm in Blacksburg, VA most of the year for college now.

Feeling adventurous? Maybe check out my current ADA Mini L Journal

No way, I live down Broadwater Rd. just north of the circle, where are you in Churchton? I'm not sure where Blacksburg is, could that be VT and do you know your major yet? My daughter went to AACC for two years and has a little time left at Maryland Univesity before she will graduate, I myself went to the school of hard knocks.

I'm in Edgewater. Being a planted geek in this area isn't too bad. 30 minutes from House of Tropicals, although most of my plant purchases are online these days.

Carroll County! And yes, the aquarium stores in MD are few and far between. I did finally check out House of Tropicals and it's great...probably the only good one left in MD. The only other "local" stores that I know of which are good are in PA and NJ...

Baltimore City here. I just started shopping at Exotic Aquatics before they shut down. House of Tropicals is good but 30-45 mins from home depending on traffic. Luckily it is not too far from work.

We just had a GWAPA member start part time at House of Tropicals and she trying to get them to see the light, literally. She is trying to get better light over the plant tanks and some substrate so they can carry something other than stems. But like many store owners they are some what old school about their ideas on planted tanks, but she has a strong personality and I think she will get them to hear what she is trying to tell them, plus they are already making changes for the good and if they are smart they will just hand over the plant section to her because she's good with planted tanks.

We are always looking for new members and it's a lot of fun!! Just click below!!

Is that the lady that I bought some RCS from last time I went? She seemed much more knowledgeable than the average HOT employee. She mentioned that she kept shrimp tanks.

Prince George here. I get alot of my plants from Congressional Aquarium in Rockville. That and Pristine Aquariums in Alexandria. Pristine is mostly just a fish place and it doesn't look like the plants they do get in live too long but every once in awhile they will have some of the rarities so it's worth checking out.
