Clubs in Capitol Region, NY?

Was wondering if anyone knew of a club IBC or otherwise in or within a couple of hours of the Capitol Region (Albany/Saratoga Springs) in New York?

If so please let me know, I would love to be involved. And if not and there are a bunch of us from the area then maybe we can use this forum to start a club!

Not that I know of. However you can start an IBC chapter with five IBC members so check around with your local aquarium society.

I so hate the petco in Queensbury. They have the baby bettas hidden away in a corner where you cant easily see them and their customer service is the worst I have encountered in ANY petshop. Benson's is much better. Oh and the petshop in aviation mall is beyond retarded

There used to be an aquatic store almost right behind the shops with petco but now it's gone now. It was replaced with some kind of doggie day care/training facility. I doubt there is anything north of me - Warrensburg is pretty much the end of civilization till you get to Plattsburgh

MrV - I don;t think there is ANY kind of aquarium society for this area..if there is, I don't know about it.

I was thinking of joining the IBC

Best PetSmart is the one on 50 in Wilton near the Mall - hands down. Bensons is good too but their fish section could be bigger. I wish Bensons sold more Betta's as I think theirs are taken care of the best as far as chains go!
