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

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!

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.

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
