Delaware Valley Aquatic Gardener's Association
 
Delaware Valley Aquatic Gardener's Association

About us…
We are in informal club founded by a group of people in love with our planted hobby. We live in the greater Philadelphia area and we all enjoy one thing…planted aquariums. Do not be shy, new faces are popping up and welcome to come along. We have members from novice to expert.

When do we meet…?
Meetings are laid back gatherings among friends where we talk about our setups and swap goodies. There is usually a main reason for gathering such as group buys, tank setups and various topics. We also meet at various fish stores for various reasons. A group trip to the discus hatchery in MD was mentioned before. There is no set schedule to all this madness!

How do I get in…?
You can send me PayPal payment of $75 and I will add you to our meeting email list. No, I am just kidding! Send one of us a private message or post your interest here to join up.

What next...
Expect a meeting once every few months. Group buys are great. A gathering at a local aquarium society for plant talks or other interesting things like fish talks…Apistogramma or Discus…!
I have met many people through the club and hope to meet even more. If you’re interested and live in the area please join in the fun.

Tell us about yourself in this thread. I hope to make this thread a great resource for folks in the area.

My name is Frank and I keep New World cichlids. My tanks are soft water planted tanks. Currently I am keeping a pair of discus, growing out angelfish, pair of Taeniacara candidi, small colony of Apistogramma bitaeniata! I am a big fan of co2 injection and run moderate to high light setups. I like writing stuff like this and reading it few years later.

Hey Everyone,

My name is Roy--I live in Lansdale, PA.

Am new to planted tanks but have had a 90 gallon up and running for nearly a year now (w/ plants for ~8 months).

Am interested in participating if you get the club back up and running--am really enjoying this hobby! I also have another friend from the area who recently got involved and is interested as well.

-Roy

Hey, I'm new to the area. Had 2 nano-El Natural setups going for about a year, then broke them down and moved 1000 miles. (And all the plants survived the move!) Am starting a new 10g (big, for me) setup as a beginning, and would like to work on better aquascaping- am having a tough time finding good suppliers of plants here, though.

I'll keep an eye on this forum in case there're any meetups this year.

I'm taking that as a "no." That's a shame. Would have laid down some dues in a hot second.

There are still a few of us in the area that get together, but its not very often. The member base is there if anyone wants to take a hand at running a club for a year?;)

Aye, there's the rub. :D Tell the folks at home what's involved?

Oh, a heads-up: Captain Nemo's in Norriton had, as of Sunday, a TON of Madagascar laceleaf aponos at something like $7 a pop. They look like clumps of TC plants, but were a pretty decent size. I saw a handful of A. boivinanus, too.

Its really not that bad. I ran it for a year and it wasnt a terribly time consuming thing. We have a small group of people, so most of the work was emailing a few people every other month and setting up a members house to meet at. Its not terribly difficult to even do a little more, like set up road trips to LFS's and things like that. It would be a pretty easy thing to jump right into. Most of our discounts are still in place as well:)
