Howdy. I'm in Portland too, in the process of setting up my first planted tank. I picked up an old 29G and stand free from a friend and am starting to build a lighting setup. I suppose I'm going to have to order plants, which is annoying. Eventually I think it would be nice to have a handful of people locally willing swap stuff, especially given that we don't have a good LFS.

Cheers!

I'm in Portland, too. I've got a 29G and am setting up a 40G breeder from PetCo. I don't have any extra plants yet ... some of the stuff in the 29G will go over to the 40. I just got some trident fern and moss for it from someone on this site. The 29 has mostly crypts, anubias and lileopsis. I'm happy to swap when/if things take off.

Hey guys I'm up here in Waterville... but I'd love to come down south once in a while if something got started. Sometimes Vances in bucksport has a great selection of plants, his fish are REALLY nice.... for the saltwater folks AquaCorals in fairfield is probably one of the best reef shop in the state... definitely in the top 3 I'd say..

is anyone still interested in starting a trading group for plants and such? my tanks have taken off with growth that i didn't think would happen so fast. i have given A LOT of plants away locally. and would love to trade for some more interesting and possibly colorful plants.
