Looking for Aquarium Club in Greenville Area

With all the fish stores here in Greenville you would think there would be a club of some kind. I'd love to find one and get involved. It would be nice to be able to get together and do some plant trading. Anyone know of one in the area?

We seem to be from different areas of SC but that shouldn't stop us. It would be nice to have local voices to talk and trade with. I'm willing to help.

Ok, so everyone should email fishman so we can get this rolling.
I hope that we can get at least 20 members and accomplish an actual meeting by Nov.

I know that charlotte is a long way, buy there is the "charlotte area aquarists society" that is 99% freshwater and they have meetings and an auction coming in october I believe. Also a few members here are on that forum as well, but most of the caas is non-planted

You seem to be an expert on Bettas. I just bought my first Betta Saturday. Can you identify the species and give me some tips on keeping him healthy? Right now he's in my 10 gallon planted tank by himself. Dint want to put him in my 20H planted with a gourami. I'm afraid they might try to kill each other. Even though the gourami is shy as heck.

The Betta hasn't eaten yet(that I've noticed). I've tried the Berta pellets and some freeze dried blood worms. Is it ok for there to be decent filtration in there with him? Most people keep them in still bowls with no movement.

Hi!Your boy is a veil tail.The tank size is perfect,plants are great.Freeze dried anything isnt good for them,they have short stomachs.Soaking the bloodworms will help keep him from being constipated so much.What brand pellets?If you are unsure about him eating,you can soak a few in garlic juice.Bettas as well as most fish love the taste,and it also helps clear any internal parasites.Hes a pretty boy.The filtration,if its bothering him(not all are bothered by it and some will play in the current)Make a baffle out of a soda bottle.
