Interested in started club???

Hey Mainers, I live in Auburn and wondered if there were any people that would be interested in starting a local club.

Do fish know that they are wet?

I'm in Kittery and want a club in maine. It would be great if were could have one big soceity that was broken up into divisons. south, north, east, and west. I'm in the NH aquarium soceity currently. It is well established but hurting. Maine needs one!!

Welcome to the forums J.farrand!

I agree, we do need something, but 4 clubs would be kinda unrealistic. I think having a club in Portland or South Portland would be our best bet to get one started.
I live a little north of Brunswick myself.

I agree on the portland idea! Not so much on the four divisons. I was trying to broadcast state wide to see what was happening. I am kind of happy with the New Hampshire club I am in, but in my opinion it needs major work. Their website is pretty weak and it seems like there isn't a big effort to spread the hobby and get new members. I want to share my plant growing knowledge and get many others interested. Planted tanks are easy!!! Keep it simple.

Lewiston here. Just moved to the area and it seems we definitely need a network of hobbyists out here.

Starting a 20 long. Not sure on stocking yet. Suggestions?

I'm a newbie as well, and just moved to Maine! This would be a great chance to meet fellow enthusiasts! I hope something comes of it. We live in southern Maine.

It's an old thread and still no club, although I've seen people talking about it on our local forum maineaquaria.com

We do occasionally meet on the saltwater side for frag swaps at cultivatedreef.com usually two or three times a year. Quite a few of us also do freshwater but I haven't seen any meetups for that so far.
