Default Hello from Boston, MA

Hey you guys. I am glad that we have a great bunch of guys with common interest in planted aquariums.
Well myself I am originally from Mumbai, India and a student now in Boston.
I used to have 6 tanks all heavily planted some 6 years back. But after I came to US i couldnt pick up the hobby (mainly coz of the cost and me being a student). Anyways , I would still love to do it now and I am sure to get help from these forums.
Rishi

Welcome! You'll find many people in the area that are keeping planted tanks. If you're interested, the New England Aquatic Plant Socity meets monthly, usually in Springfield. It might be a bit of a drive, but there is a good group now that is pretty helpful in answering quesitons. It's also a great place to swap plants.

Just checked the address for the meeting place of NEAPS, It is toooo far off from me. Too bad I dont have car.
Anyways, thanks for the information on such a society.
Lets see, Now I will have to get hold of my friends to get me there

Hi! I'm in Boston as well and I just graduated, so I can relate to the student budget. If you need suggestions on pet stores (if you haven't discovered Skipton's yet, check it out, they often order very rare plants and fish and sell them cheap) or want some plant trimmings, let me know!

Hey There DJKronik.

Thanks again and let me know
