Anyone still come here?

Wow over a year since any posts. Anyone still involved with this forum who lives in NC or more specifically Charlotte/Gastonia/Hickory area?

I'm in Chapel Hill. I'm a long time lurker but am hoping to start getting more active on this forum.

yeh I saw that there used to be a decent amount of activity on here. I just got into planted tanks. And aquariums in general in the last few months, so i'm a total newbie.

There is a small group of people that meet occasionally in the RDU area. Its only 2-4 times a year though and very informal. I haven't been in awhile. Seems they always do it when I'm working. I can put you in touch with them if you want.

I was born in Chapel Hill, might be transferring to Guilford in Greensboro, and fully intend to live in NC again one day. You'll see me around here one of these days...

Hi ! I'm from Charlotte. In my opinion, the best we have locally is Fintastic -- the folk there are pretty knowledgeable....

If you're into cichlids, there's a new shop in Charlotte on Independence Blvd. The owner's a hobbyist and very cool!
