Just went to the January Meeting on Friday, seems like a great group of people. Met the Aquabid seller "Oddball Aquatics" There's a wealth of information in this group. Speakers most months, a couple of auctions a year, raffles, and very welcoming to the novice.

Also found the Pittsburgh Area Planted Aquarium Society, Papas for short.

I'm green with envy!

Not enough people around here even care, to have a "society".

That's fantastic. I wish we still lived closer to the city so I might get to go to the meetings. Glad to hear that it was so inviting. It's hard to find any aquarist organizations in these parts.

Well, after having gone to 4 meetings now, I've come to the conclusion the as long as I buy the raffle tickets (15 for $5) I may never need to "buy" fish food again. Each meeting I've come home with at least one grab bag of stuff. All sorts of free goodies from various manufacturers, food, treatments, decorations, cleaning scrubbies on a long pole, even salt water stuff that I give to a coworker. This month I ended up with two bags, ended up giving most of it away to friends who have tanks because I'm running out of room... But I kept the bottles of Flourish Excel and Iron. ;D

That's cool! Especially the free gifts part! There should be more of these societies or clubs in the world then all the fish keepers can join!

Sorry I checked it's the Potomac Vally aquarium society.

How close is Laurel Maryland to you?
I drool every time they have one of these things. Would love to go sometime.

That's almost a 6 hour drive, it's right between Baltimore and DC.

Quick bump (or shameless plug, if you will)

One of the reasons I haven't been around much lately is I am now the admin for the GPASI Forum. If you're local to the Pittsburgh area and wish to learn a little more about the club, stop by, register and ask your questions. It's for members of the Society, and those who wish to learn about it, as well as general aquarium chatter (although FL does a darn good job of that, don't want to cut into that!).
