yyankeeyankeefan is anyone still interested in starting a trading group for plants and such? my tanks have taken off with growth that i didn't think would happen so fast. i have given A LOT of plants away locally. and would love to trade for some more interesting and possibly colorful plants.

yyankeeyankeefan hello. i just joined this site and i am in Augusta Maine. have you had any luck finding any freshwater clubs here? i have had a heck of a time. though i don't have transportation to portland for meetings . but i would love to be able to trade plants (once mine start to take off as this is my first real run with planted tanks) ideas, and learn more about them.

MaineAquatics Hey guys I'm up here in Waterville... but I'd love to come down south once in a while if something got started. Sometimes Vances in bucksport has a great selection of plants, his fish are REALLY nice.... for the saltwater folks AquaCorals in fairfield is probably one of the best reef shop in the state... definitely in the top 3 I'd say..

howle I'm in Portland, too. I've got a 29G and am setting up a 40G breeder from PetCo. I don't have any extra plants yet ... some of the stuff in the 29G will go over to the 40. I just got some trident fern and moss for it from someone on this site. The 29 has mostly crypts, anubias and lileopsis. I'm happy to swap when/if things take off.
