Smile Why are there no active Planted Tank Groups in Utah?

It was quite disappointing to find little planted tank interest in the Salt Lake City area. After being involved for a few years in salt water reef tanks and enjoying the great knowledge sharing and common interest (WMAS) I have yet to find any groups that are as active with planted tanks. ???

I think Happi hails from salt lake... he's fairly experienced and a wealth of info.

I'm from Salt Lake but moving to kaysville soon. I'd be interested in seeing what other planted tankers are doing. Do any of you have ponds as well?

Aquatic Utah is still up, but fairly quiet. I'm in the Richfield area, but come up to the Provo area once in awhile.

I'm not new to fish or plants, but am new to planted tanks. It is fun to learn new things and plantedtank.net is a great place to do it.

I'm in Salt Lake and I'm new here. I'd like to make some local connections with some other hobbyists.

You should start one.

If you want any advice on how to do it and what to avoid when setting up a club PM me. I founded the Connecticut aquatic plant enthusiasts a few years ago which is still kicking and growing.

I am in Sandy. I have a 125 semi high tech planted discus tank. I am currently selling Discus juvies I hatched and raised, you can find my ad on KSL. I am also selling a few different types of plants because i know how hard it is to find quality plants locally. I am in the process of setting up a Discus/plants breeding room. Feel free to call me 801-550-3277 Matt.

Best LFS

Does anyone have a favorite LFS for plants? So far I really like Fish 4 U, they have a great staff.
