I belong to the Medina Aquarium Society (meeting is 2nd Friday of the month at 8 PM) and the Ohio Cichlid Association (1st Friday of the month at 8 PM). I also have been meaning to join the GAAS but can't seem to remember on the day of the meeting.
There are always plants available at the M.A.S. meeting and usually at the OCA meetings as well.
