Looking for Plant and Native Fish People
Hi, fishy folks! I've been away from the hobby for many years, but I'm getting back into it. I've never had an actual "planted tank" before, just the odd live plant now and then. I'm getting a 125 gallon tank soon and plan to set it up as a planted tetra/South American biotope tank. A couple of large plecostomus (plecostomi?) are coming with the tank, so I'm fast-tracking the nitrogen cycle in a 55 for them to live in temporarily while I get the 125 set up, and right now it's planted with plastic plants (which are thriving!). In the past I've collected and kept native fish, and plan to get back into that, too. Is there anyone in the Philadelphia area who is into any of these aspects of the hobby? For now, I'll be focusing on getting the 125 going, but I have a few 55 and smaller tanks that I'll probably set up, with at least one 55 being for natives only. I'd like to find someone reasonably close who would like to eventually go collecting. I still have my lonely old seine net ready and waiting, and a cooler or two, and I'm looking forward to scouting the local creeks and rivers. Feel free to message me.
