Looking for a Fish Club in Torrance/Los Angeles!
 
Searched online and I found "SCAPE" but I haven't signed up to be a member yet to find out if the meets are close.

I'm not necessarily looking for a big club to join I just found myself with some extra time on my hands and I'd love to hang out and meet with people in my area who have the same interests.

SCAPE is a great club. We do have a meet once a year at Lotus Aquarium in Lawndale, which I do believe is close to you. We meet at different locations every month hosted by members or sponsers. Then there is COAST, which meets every 1st Sunday of each month in Costa Mesa. Monthly speakers and great auction. There is also the SOCAL Killi club which meets in Seal Beach and Glendale area, alternates between the sites each month.

All of these are like 30 Miles plus. I really thought there were more clubs around. I guess not. When I had a reef tank I could find a dozen clubs in 5 miles but nothing for Freshwater..Really disappointing.

You could start a South Bay club and I would join since I live in San Pedro. There is no need to be disappointed, just be willing to put the time and work into what it takes. I am a member of SCAPE yet never attended a monthly meeting due to scheduling conflicts.

You could consider hosting a mini-meeting at your home and local SCAPE members could/would attend.

Looking for a Fish Club in Torrance/Los Angeles!
 
I want to participate in a club that stays put!

I will compile a list and see where we go from there.

nice to see you here :-)
SCAPE is great, if you like a traveling and have the time to do so. I travel like many of you during the week and frankly I do not know many people that-will travel 2-3 hours to get into the sticks for an auction.
I already pay the price for living in this rat race... why drive away from the metropolis?
That is why La club is needed.

If in fact you like to drive and I would highly recommend SCAPE, Especially if you're into shrimp.....
Its a shrimpers delight of a site.
