Mechanicsburg - anyone interested in monthly meet/swap/c

Anyone in the area interested in doing a monthly Planted Tank meetup/club/swap style thing at a coffee house, or bar?
PM me if interested. I'd be willing to most of the legwork.

I had tanks for years, but none in the last 15 years. I did my first dirted tank back in 1995 and the technology has increased tenfold. I had to get rid of my 65 gallon tank to make room for a vent free gas fireplace

I'm getting a 40 gallon breeder set up. Starting low tech and working my way up to a high tech when I can afford to buy, or are able to McGuyver the necessary components.

bassistjon112 I was considering these but I think the cheapest I saw them was 2.50 or 3.50.

bassistjon112 I check in every now and then. I think im subbed to the thread. But my tanks are doing terrible. I added dirt to my tanks about 6 months ago and was hit with algae. Im lazy with water changes. I think my tanks are just now to starting to mature and the alage is going away on its own. Lost my downi and dwarf baby tears, but I replaced them a week ago. I also got new fish that Im really happy with, white clouds, not so honey gourami and male feeder guppies. Funny the cheapest fish Ive ever bought are my new favorites.

orchidman Hey guys, I haven't been here in a while BUT, I'm hoping to get back into it this summer. I'm looking for some needle leaf java fern, crypts, and maybe hydrocotyl sibthorpioides. Anyone in the area have some?

Ps. If you're not in the area but have some that you're willing to sell, send me a pm!

bassistjon112 Here's a little review.

I just got a new fluval co2 diffuser, it's working really well for me. Very small bubbles and only $5. Using diy co2.

shadetreeme Hi all.... I have been remiss in my postings. Lots going on.
Just wana post a current pic of my 125 planted. I am going to be trimming soon, so if anyone needs anything you see in the pic..... let me know.
I have finally started setting aside a little time for it, and want to start adding some different plants. If anyone has anything cool to trade or sell cheap, I would be stoked!

BillV Hey Imaginary1226, I'm in Jacobus! I've had plants in the past (low tech stuff only), but just started 20L with CO2, and am experimenting a bit. Regards, Bill
