helping aquarists become more successful since 1931
  • Monthly Meeting Guidelines


  • People start gathering and socializing by 7:00 pm
  • Meetings start at 7:15 pm
  • We start with announcements and (if needed) any Club business.
  • The focus of each meeting is an hour-long presentation (sometimes longer).
  • Membership is typically given 10 minutes for further socializing and reviewing items on the BAP/HAP table. For those who need to leave early, this provides a smooth exit time.
  • We close the meetings with the BAP/HAP auction of fish/plants that members have bred/propogated.  Only fellow members may bid on these items.
  • Meetings typically conclude between 9:30 and 10:00 pm.
