looking for a local club to join in south florida


I'm looking to join an aquatic club in south florida. Any suggestions? Is it me or is there not that much activity in south florida in regards to aquariums and fish keeping?

There's also the GCAS, Gold Coast Aquarium Society. They have a monthly meeting every second Wednesday of the month, which just so happens to be today. They meet in Cooper City. Tonight Henry from the Planted Aquarium Store is going to be talking about Invertebrates.

Hey Paolo,

They are more dedicated to cichlids and livebarers. There are a few people in there that keep plants but not many.

I'm going to try to make it, but I have a basketball game at 7 in downtown Miami. I would be there well into the presentation.

I'm speaking on low light/tech planted tank in October. Want to do a scape and let the club auction it off. The goal is to have a "planted only" club as well. I do encourage people to go the the GC meetings, but I also want to meet people with planted tanks. Talk about planted tanks and show off our planted tanks.

Anyway I'm JJ if I'm up that way.

Yeah, i know, but the OP just asked if there were any aquarium clubs in general, not specifically aquatic plant clubs.

Ok, I might be late to the meeting if I go too, because I have soccer Practice in Sunrise at 7pm, so yeah..... idk....

Anyways, that sounds great, I'll try to go there in October if possible.
