Is there an Austin Aquarium club?
 
Just wondering if there is a aquarium/fish/planted tank club or organization here in Austin?

There seems to be a fair amount of us here, one could be justifed IMO.

There is the Hill County Cichlid Club (which is pretty active) and the Capital Aquarium Society may be started again.

Do you have any more info on how to get in touch with either of them?

Here is the HCCC website:

They have a meeting this weekend at River City.

Do any of these clubs still gather?

HCCC still meets and as far as I know, is the only club running in Austin. I wish there would be a planted tank club here. Exchanging plants would be awesome!

We could meet at the Aqua-Tek and celebrate with Bruce, Will and Marcus at Senator Hegar's change of heart on the white list :)!

I've been wanting a planted tank club in Austin for years now and you're right, we have the numbers to do it. I would love the extra socializing and the trading. I don't know why we don't.

l got more than enough plants to trade. Maybe some for red cherry shrimp or something?

swissian 01-27-2011 03:50 AM

I do have tons of pretty cherry shrimp!

We do seem to have enough if the Amazonia thread is any indication. I belong to the Austin chapter of a haunters group and they have meet and greets at area restaurants or bars,this could be an idea for this so no one has to open up their house. The Aqua-tek meet is also an idea but I don't know how they would feel about us loitering :)

Someone going to aquatek soon who can ask?
