Hey everybody, I found your forum on CL while looking around to see what's on the market and decided I'd stop by to check you out. I am stationed in Norfolk, VA and brand new to the area. I have a 75G and a 10G. The 10G is my hospital tank with a bare bottom and driftwood. My 75G on the other hand is a little more busy with 6 Discus, 4 Clown Loach, 13 Neon Tetra, a BN Pleco, and RCS (Maybe lol). It's a planted tank with swords, java ferns, riccia, pennywort, etc. But anyways, glad to have found y'all. Happy 4th of July!

So are there any functions here in the VA area fish wise? Do a group of y'all meet regularly? It'd be nice to have friends who love fish as much as I do.

We have been meeting bi-monthly. Sorry we don't have the date figured out quite yet for the next meeting. The plan is to have a cookot this time around to change the meeting up a little.

Welcome, Dan! It's nice to see another member from Virginia!

As far as functions in the area, we have been meeting in Richmond every two months, as Ben says. In 2011 we met in January, March, and May.

Check out the latest meeting here:
http://usafishbox.forumotion.com/t7652-virginia-chapter-may-22-meeting
Planning starts on the first page. Page 8 gets you to the actual meeting day:
http://usafishbox.forumotion.com/t7652p84-virginia-chapter-may-22-meeting

Planning for a summer meeting is underway ... we're trying to get a date nailed down.
