Beerguy Just joined up today from Louisville. Looking to add a 20 long tank or two to my reptile room to add humidity & cause fish are cool too.

shelleyd2008 Anyone in the area (south-central or in need of a road trip) that needs some baby guppies, plants, or snails? I have a jungle of water sprite and wisteria in my 45-gallon tank and another jungle of wisteria in my 10-gallon. Bladder and ramshorns snails out the wazoo in the 45 and tons of ramshorns in the 10. Plus we recently noticed that there are quite a few baby guppies hiding in the 10-gallon tank's wisteria plant--nothing fancy, they are called pink flamingos but aren't the ones with the big flashy tails. I should have several lace (windelov) java fern 'babies' as soon as I figure out how to remove them from the mother plants without killing them!

Clavius New guy to freshwater dropping in to say hello. Used to do the reef thing but got out of it awhile back. Now going to try a small planted tank with a Fluval Spec V I just ordered. Oh, and I'm in Lexington.

lizzj Hi guys,
I live in Louisville and I am a member of the fish club. I breed bristlenose plecos and angelfish mostly. I also have red cherry and yellow shrimp. This summer I am going to try my hands at getting my CPD's and threadfin rainbows to spawn.

The spring auction is next month at the fish club and it is a chance to pick up some cheap fish, food, and plants. There are alot of cichlid keepers in the club but there are also guppy, killifish, livebearer, rainbow, apisto, etc. breeders/keepers in the club. We have a facebook page if you are interested in joining. It is under Louisville Tropical Fish Fanciers. There is also a yahoo mail group under the same name. Hope that helps you out.

somewhatshocked You're right, unfortunately. It's been 99.9999% Cichlids and salt until recently.

Luckily, it's cheap to ship everything to Louisville so you can order most of what you need for less than the rest of the country. UPS Worldport helps with that, I think.

I've only used local shops for the occasional plant (sometimes there'll be a cool crypt that's mislabeled and underpriced) and for staples like dechlorinator and driftwood. When it comes to livestock and plants, you can get healthier, more sustainable and more affordable stuff from this forum and various retailers online.

There are some acceptable places where you'll find occasional surprises, however. They are:
  • Greentree Pet Center across the river in IN
  • Sandy's Pets (mostly Cichlids and marine)
  • Pets Palace
  • Noah's Ark (South End)
  • There are also increasingly nice fish finds at various Feeders Supply locations. The one downtown (run by a friend of mine) has occasionally nice Crypts and nano fish - but not all the time. St. Matthews location is decent for quick grabs and the occasional fish. The ones in Indiana are also pretty decent for cheaper items.

Beyond that, it's pretty much a desert.

Even the local tropical fish club is overwhelmingly Cichlid-centric.

Just a handful of folks really into plants and critters that you can't get at PetSmart but it's slowly growing.

Where in eastern Kentucky?
I'm not from there but have lots of family there (mom is from there) and I spent numerous summers there. Harlan county to be exact.
