I should be able to make that one. Sorry I haven't been on in a while because I've been trying to finish summer school so I can graduate by the end up the year and working full time so I haven't had a lot of play time and my tank has gotten kind of out of control and need some serious maintenance... Hopefully I will see you guys there.

I feel ya man, This summer is killing me! I don't think i'm gonna take 15 hours in a summer semester and work full time again, stupid to think it was even realistic for me lol. I'm so burnt out on school. Next semester should be better for both of us.

Hey everyone,

just wanted to remind you all that the next meeting is August 25th, 2012 at 2pm. I'm going to recommend the Starbucks on San Mateo and I-25 as our location unless there are other ideas. Let me know who will be able to attend!

-Sky

Hey all, just discovered TPT site. I am also in the ABQ area and am starting my first 30 gal tank after playing with bettas/shrimp/tetras in a 2.5 gal for about a year. Was there a consensus on the previous posts on where I could go to get healthy fish from an educated LFS? Clark's is outrageously expensive...

They're pretty much the only ones around town that have any idea what they're talking about IME. My friend swears by the petsmart on Montgomery and I25 though.

Thanks Sky, went to that Petsmart last weekend looking for driftwood. They only had artificials in. Seemed decent for a big chain store though.

well i'm guessing that the lack of response means that we don't really have anyone to meet this coming Saturday...

Wished I could make it, Zambia, South Africa is along way away, won't be back until late on Sunday. Petco on Eubank and Lomas by the Target is not to bad, the fish guy is pretty knowledgeable and they have some shrimps. Clarks does have the best selection of drift wood though.

Unfortunately I regret to inform that I am considering letting my 55gallon go because I have had very little time to take care of it with working full time and more than full time at school and it has gone down hill a bit. =l If anyone is interested on this thread let me know. I have it up for $450 which I feel is pretty reasonable considering it has everything you need plus more. If I don't get around that I might just keep it and try again once I graduate in December. Pm me if anyone is interested, knows someone interested or wants to know some specs. =l

Default Hello

Hello, all. I am a long-time reef keeper but have never kept a planted tank. I just joined this forum to learn about what it takes to start a planted tank. Looking at some of the tanks here, I'm envious of the relative peace in a planted tank. So green, too!

I've subscribed to this post in case there's a club meet in the future. Hope to meet some of you!
