Hi, sorry I don't get on here enough! I've run into other real enthusiasts in LFSs. There is a local Reef Club-Las Vegas Valley Reefers- http://vegasreefers.com/forums/forum.php, but it's strictly marine. I think there may be a Koi group as well. I've lived here for ages and never have found a tropical/freshwater/or planted group. If you all are thinking of getting together, PM me! Considering the times my tank has turned jungle-y and I've had to throw out plants, having someone to offer cuttings to would've been nice! I wish I had more tanks (just 2), but anyway here's one of 'em
29g heavily planted SA: driftwood, rock, currently a mess
8g Nuvo: Blue Dreams and Velvets, driftwood, java moss and crypts. A jungle.
10g 3x divided Betta planted with no Bettas, only snails. Yes, I have backslid.
