Motor City Aquarium Society

Hey guys i just came across this group and was curious if any of you were familiar with them? Looks like they do semi regular auctions and meetings unfortunately there next auction is tomorrow and no way i can make it.

Here's a link to there site www.motorcityaquariumsociety.com they seem to be located out in the Madison Heights - Warren area. just looking for whether or not i would be worth my while to hike out there. its about a 45 min drive for me.

Looks like you dont have to be a member to attend auctions, could be a cool place to pick up some different fish or plants without having to buy online. Just going to have to wait till the February auction to check them out, no money till after christmas

I've been going to this auction a couple of times. That I've heard its one of the biggest in the state. They have a nice setup. The last auction they were using a projector to show what item was up for auction. To me this is a auction worth the drive. This auction has livebearers, cichlids, some inverts, lots of plants, plecos, and cories. I'm sure I forgot other things too. Oh they usually have used equipment and tanks.

The Greater Detroit Aquarium Society Auction is nice but I like this one better because it seems like there is a lot more stuff. Also where they hold this auction it is more spacious. There was a lot of stuff fish (livebearers, inverts, cichlids, catfish), books, filter and tanks galore.

Don't know if any of you made it out to the auction but It was big and from what i heard it ran til 7pm. Good selection of plants. Lots and lots of fish and yes they still have a projector to show you what's on the auction block.

I used to live there and went to some meetings of both groups. Both were great. MCAS was east side, GDAS in the north. There's at least one other plant fanatic in MCAS.
