Plant Swaps/Shows

Hello Ohio! Apparently I have been looking in the wrong places because I cannot find any of the above mentioned shows for the life of me, lol. I realize I may have to travel, but was hoping to find one in NW Ohio/SE Mich.

I have tried the local aquarists forums on a different site as well, but it seems most of those folks are reef keepers. Surely there has to be some interested planted tank keepers in this area? Lol.

Anyways, if anyone has any info, please reply here or send me a PM. Thanks!

I am not aware of any plant only swaps/shows but there are some local fish clubs having semi annual auctions.

The Greater Akron Aquarium Society has theirs Sunday Nov.4 2012, look for info on their website. Fish, equipment and usually a nice selection of plants are auctioned off and it is usually an all day affair.

Also the Ohio Cichlid Association is having their annual Extravaganza the weekend of Nov 16, 17, 18, 2012. The auction will be on Sunday only but many attendees will be selling various goods, fish and plants from their hotel rooms. Check the website at

Awesome. Those are both a bit of a drive, but I certainly may have to check them out! Thanks for the info.
