I was a member of BAS for many years. It is an amazing club with a lot of great people and top notch events. The auctions are pretty good as well.
I keep meaning to go to a meeting, but life keeps getting in the way! I would recommend BAS to anyone... EXCELLENT reef keeping talks as well as fresh water.
The membership sounds interesting. Is anyone here a member of the BAS? I'd be interested in joining and knowing if there are other betta people around. I think I'm going to go to this too. Thanks for the heads up
