I'm still fairly new to planted tanks although I'm experimenting with riparium set ups and I am slowly working on aquascaping. I live in the SW side of Columbus.
I would love to know of more clubs/meets in the area or meet up for a swap. I realize this is a bit late since the thread was originally made!
So far I have seven tanks; all freshwater. I have four planted at the moment with two in progress almost as I type. (Working on diy backgrounds and boiling some driftwood now!) I also have one 75gallon that is in progress to be an axolotl planted tank. Probably riparium style. It's slow progress though.
I'm very interested in some more colorful plants. Reds especially. Most of what I find locally seems to be mid green and tall and that is about it. I have a TON of Riccia, Baby Tears and Java moss though!
