Why are there no active Planted Tank Groups in Utah?
It was quite disappointing to find little planted tank interest in the Salt Lake City area. After being involved for a few years in salt water reef tanks and enjoying the great knowledge sharing and common interest (WMAS) I have yet to find any groups that are as active with planted tanks. ???

yeah, ive noticed this as well. its even harder for me as im up in logan and have yet to find anyone else with similar interests.

I'm here in Logan as well. We should just start our own group.

I think Happi hails from salt lake... he's fairly experienced and a wealth of info.

I'm down in Provo and haven't heard anything...Luckily I'm not from around here and can piggy back on the chicago scene.

I'm from Salt Lake but moving to kaysville soon. I'd be interested in seeing what other planted tankers are doing. Do any of you have ponds as well?

Aquatic utah used to have a lot going on over there, but I think it got shut down for some reason... I'm in orem and there was several of us in utah county who were active on there and some on here

I'm in Provo; new to the hobby and even newer to Planted Tank.

Aquatic Utah is still up, but fairly quiet. I'm in the Richfield area, but come up to the Provo area once in awhile.

I'm in Salt Lake and I'm new here. I'd like to make some local connections with some other hobbyists.

You should start one.

If you want any advice on how to do it and what to avoid when setting up a club PM me. I founded the Connecticut aquatic plant enthusiasts a few years ago which is still kicking and growing.

I'm in Orem as well I use to do only salt but found a new love in planted tanks, still new but I'm having great success with my 20, threads called seedless check it out I'm also looking to make connection in Utah so I can trade plants :)

I am in Sandy. I have a 125 semi high tech planted discus tank. I am currently selling Discus juvies I hatched and raised, you can find my ad on KSL. I am also selling a few different types of plants because i know how hard it is to find quality plants locally. I am in the process of setting up a Discus/plants breeding room. Feel free to call me 801-550-3277 Matt.

Best LFS
Does anyone have a favorite LFS for plants? So far I really like Fish 4 U, they have a great staff.
