San Antonio

Hey everyone. Never thought to post here with this question... Any Planted Tank members in San Antonio? I am looking for some people I can go to for trades or raok's and just people I can talk to or get ideas from (in person). Surrounding cities work as well as I make trips to Austin and Houston many times in the year.

I am currently trying to find a new home for my 4 silver dollars that are 5 inches long and my sailfin pleco that is 8 inches long. Craigslist is not working at all and I do not want take my fish of 2 years to the LFS!!!

Let me know if you live around here so I can add you as a friend and we can exchange info/tips etc.

I live in San Antonio. but I'm kinda inept at keeping plants alive. (I can kill anything. D: ) Sometimes I have algae. And sometimes I like it. (I've killed a marimo. Does that technically mean I've killed algae? D: )

So yeah, I'm here. I'm just silent and inept. With the touch of death. D:
(Don't worry, my pets are fine. It's mostly plants and electronics.)

I have tried to get the San Antonio hobbyists together a few times but I never get replies. I've had much more success with people in Austin and Houston. The theme of the people here seems to be "I keep to myself".

But if anyone ever wants to meet up or share info, trade goods, etc. just shoot me a PM

It's true. I'm like a plecostomus. I'm back there in the shadows, being all lurky, and only really come to the front if I need food or filters or something. Then right back to lurking for me.

I am in San Antonio.

At this point, I don't have much to trade. I've just started a couple of aquariums and all I have are Java Ferns and an Anubia. I'm looking for some Java Moss, as I'll be starting a Bosemani Rainbow tank in the near future. Does anyone know of a good place for finding the stuff?

Occasionally I find it at Alamo Exotics off Bandera. If you're going up there, Aquatek in Austin tends to have some mosses available.


If you ask Fintique, they may be able to order it for you - not sure though.

You might also try Pet Frontier off Wetmore - I just looked at their website and it says they're out of stock, but you might be able to call and ask if they have some - all you need is a little ; )

I just wanted to add that I'm from SA also. I just got started with planted tanks, so I don't really have anything to trade.
