I used to live in Portage. I used to live right by the IMAX movie theater there. I have a friend who lives in Michigan City that I visit every once in a while. I grew up in northeast Indiana but lived in the northwest area for a couple years.

i live in Portage - i have had 2 successful reef tanks for the past 2 years. I have recently decided to jump into FW planted - currently looking at an empty canvas (50 gal qtr cylinder) i would like to make a few visits and gather a little experience from local folks. Coming from a world where light and flow are king i see i have alot to learn.

I'm in Griffith and have had many great experiences at The Ark. Terry's Aquarium is also a great place that occasionally gets in some oddball species.

Demotte here but I literally just started thinking about doing planted tanks so I wouldn't really say it is a hobby yet. Just aquariums in general and I'm trying to expand to more interesting tanks.

Hi evryone I am origanlly from Tipton IN and I now live in Arlington TX. I just wanted to try and stay in touch with other planted tanks people in IN. I did exstinsive collecting while I lived in the Hoosier state so if anyone needs help in finding somthin in the wild please let me know. I miss the 90 degree days, cause it's 108 here. There is a great amount of wild life in the Hoosier state, that can be of use to the planted tank person. I am planning on a May trip to Tipton to visit friens and also collect some plants. Look forward to hearing from everyone.
