I'm in Palmer, MA. If anyone is within ~15 miles or so and wants to trade plants/clippings, send me a PM! I have plenty of java fern (regular and narrow leaf), Anubias nana, Salvinia minima, vallisneria spiralis, and more.
Springfield, MA here. Have a 5 gallon planted tank (converted to planted in sept 2011) that started off as just an African Dwarf Frog tank, but now as of recently they have 2 oto and 5 cherry shrimp friends (who are naturally all females despite requesting both if possible :/ sigh).
I'm right on the Mass side of where Mass / Vermont / New Hampshire all converge
Still looking for an awesome LFS in this area. I used to work for Bill Bright at The Fish Nook in Acton MA a few years back and got used to having access to his fauna/flora selection & knowledge base... then I moved to the middle of the woods. Dang!
If there's anyone in the Northampton/Amherst area, the Chicopee/Springfield area or the Charlemont/North Adams area I'd be happy to meet up, trade, or do whatever. Let me know. Cheers!
Aww this thread makes me sad. I'm originally from Methuen, MA lived there my whole life. Now I live in Las Vegas.
If you guys know any good LFS stores in that area send me a PM, I'm trying to get my brother (who still lives there) to take better care of his betta.
Back on the forum after two moves across two years! Slowly getting back into the hobby!
