Hey weaselnoze,

Absolutely, we meet every third sat of the month. Its been a ton of fun to meet local plant geeks. I hope you will make to one in the future.

Here is a link to our home on APC...there are tons of pictures of past meetings and things like that. Take a look at as many of the threads as you can.

Shay alex93se and Fosty,

We are looking at The third Saturday in Feb for the first meeting in Phoenixville. It would be great if you guys could make it. PM me if you need more info.

Shay The more the merrier. Hopefully we'll make a road trip to TPP too.

Fosty I may be able to come to a meeting or two sometime, if guests are welcome. I'm way to busy to make the one or two hour drive this spring, but maybe sometimes.

Shay It will either be in Conshohocken or in Phoenixville. I'm working on a new 120 gallon tank that should be up and running either by the first or second meeting. It would be fun to get input on the aquascape so maybe Jason will let me do the honors of hosting the first meeting. Look forward to seeing you there.

alex93se Very cool. I'm interested in attending. Have you decided on a location yet?
