Monthly Meetings and Presentations

Monthly meetings are open to all.  Each meeting:
  • showcases a 60-90 minute presentation from local experts or national speakers.
  • includes opportunities to network with other aquarists
  • auctions off fish and plant from local members
  • raffles items donated from vendors

Annual Event

Each year MAS produces a city-wide event that includes displays of tanks by local members, speakers, and more.
Annual Event


MAS holds three day-long auctions each year.  Local aquarists bring their bagged fish, bagged aquatic plants, tanks, and aquarium supplies.  Each item is auctioned to those attending with the seller receiving a share of the selling price.  These auctions also include out Surrender events – where anyone can bring unwated fish for us to rehome.
