Thank you for the welcome. Should I reply here or on APC? A while ago (back when I was in college), a few friends and I started up the Champaign Area Fish Exchange (CAFE) in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois. I would imagine that things are a bit different nowadays, but the experiences may help somehow (hopefully).

APC's where the party transferred to, but feel free to keep this alive as well. Whichever you want.

Goodness, you're more experience than we do So you'd swap fish and plants with your college buddies, and the organization is still around today? NICE.

Yeah, it is pretty hard to believe that the club is still going strong to this day. Had a lot of fun with it back in the day...

FIRST MEETING TODAY!! Well, it isn't that big of a meeting, just a little group of us at the Central Library in Green Bay smoothing out a few bumps. We meet at two, so come if you can!

I know that when I was first starting in the hobby again, I cruised craigslist like mad for tank stuff, free fish, ect..

Posting to the local pet pages might get you guys a larger base.

Ahhh! Hadn't thought of that! Only forums and such. I'll look into it. Thanks!

It kind of fell apart over the summer... Things got busy for me and the other person trying to set this up and we lost contact. I've tried sending a message to him about this again, but got no response.

Maybe if we just said people come to this place and such and such a time to hang out and talk, and trade plant trimmings?

I know nothing yet but I have googled the fish stores and there seems to be a few decent stores there. I know aquatics unlimited is a big store there and I have heard good things. I may be checking out some places when I take a trip there tomorrow so if I find any great things out I can update you. In terms of needing most things, however, you can find them in swap n shop on this site or online.
