Living Seas Aquarium in Park Ridge (Cumberland & Devon). I've been to the Aquarium Adventure in Bolingbrook but not Hoffman Estates.


If you're traveling about Chicagoland, keep these in mind:

Old Orchard Aquarium in Skokie (Skokie Blvd south of Old Orchard Mall)

Old Town Aquarium in Chicago (near Wells & North)
Ocean Design Aquarium in Chicago (Irving Park & Narragansett)

I'd be interested in meeting and discussing tanks etc. I'm in Bolingbrook (South Burbs) and Aquarium Adventure (Bolingbrook) is 10 minutes from my house =)

I would be interested. It would be cool to have meets and swap plant trimmings with members.

I would be interested in joining. I'm currently looking for somewhere local to find some new plants rather than shipping them. This would be a great opportunity to learn and share!

Hi guys - I will invite you to the group. We are trying to organize a meet early next month and need strength in numbers to make it successful. Please check the discussions and respond your availability or alternate date/time and venue.

This is a little late, but I would love to join in on something like that. Let me know when and where. My work schedule stays the same most of the time, so I am good for evenings and weekends.

We just had 2 meets so far and most are ok to meet once every couple of months with a fixed agenda, but the meets are not the only essence of a local club. I will invite you to our group here where you can follow the discussions for updates

please invite me too! I'm pretty much a complete newb to planted tanks (and fairly novice with tanks in general) but they're so beautiful that i've decided i'm going to set one up this year.
