Fish club in Hudson Valley, NY?

I'm looking for a local tropical/planted fish club in the Hudson Valley, NY - (Westchester County).

I'm in Ulster Co. and have not been able to find one. Will be watching this thread with some interest.

How about you two starting one up?

Well, I'd be hoping for a bit more of a response. At this point, we could just visit each other and call it anything we wanted to. :)

Dear Aquaverde and melbourne,

I live in Milton (that's between Newburgh and Highland on Route 9W). I hope to be a regular participant on this forum, and I suggest we keep in touch through the Planted Tank.

I enjoy LFS hunting. I've driven from Schenectady to New Jersey. Either of you guys are welcome on the next road trip.

I'm going to post the link to the page I sent you, ksand.
This is an aquarist that lives in Poughkeepsie and keeps planted tanks. She used to post on usenet, but I haven't been there in a long time, so maybe doesn't any more. The page hasn't been updated in forever, but is still helpful if you're looking for local stores. I printed out this page a year ago, and made a point to visit all of them. Animabilia is one of my favorites, and I posted elsewhere about B&G.

Although I live in Connecticut now, I'm from Dutchess County, NY. I have family in Pawling and Beacon and would be interested in being apart of a club/group in this area.

Hello, SueFru - I don't have time to get involved with organizing a club, but maybe we could all get together for coffee one of these days. Have you ever been to that LFS in Greenwich? I've been wanting to take a trip over there.

Local club

I'm down in northern westchester county, just a stones throw from CT. Also interested in a club if one gets started. I have two planted tanks I started recently both 55's and two 125G reefs and one 37G reef.

Hudson Valley Aquarists
How would one go about starting something like this? I could find the time if enough people want to give it a try. Anyone have a place where a small group of people could meet?

Momotaro 10-23-2004 02:36 AM

You might want to meet at an LFS known for a good plant selection, do a little fish run together, and swap some plants! Stop somewhere and have a little lunch together.

Start small.

New Aquarist Club
I was in B&G Pet Supplies in Newburgh today. I was talking with Matt about the Nymphaea zenkeri I just purchased, and a fellow standing nearby joined in the conversation. It turns out he wants to start a club. He doesn't own a computer, but we exchanged phone numbers. Looks promising, I'll keep this forum posted.

There should be someone available on the boards here with some practical advice to offer on what's involved with starting a club.

Hi All,
I am new to this site, but not new to the hobby. I have been looking for a club in our area for a while now. If anyone wants to offically start one, I am willing to do what it takes to give it a strong push. Let me know.

ksand 12-14-2004 09:42 PM

Great! Count me in. Feel free to contact me via email.
