I'll be there. I hope someone is bringing some fast-growing stem plants, and cuttings are fine too! I think I'm also looking for a krib or some other centerpiece fish for a 10g. I'll have to go check what the talk is about.

Is the July party going to be in the Aquarium learning center or at Dana and Shania's house like I heard a couple of months ago?
I hope it is at Dana and Shania's house personally since it would be a great chance to see their tanks (50+ at my last check with them) and it is bout half a mile from my house.

I'm just getting back into the hobby, but never joined any clubs or attended any meetings in the past.. What happens? Can I just show up? More importantly, should I drive from PVD or save that for next month (when there's apparently an auction?)

The club has a speaker every month. You can show up as a guest.
Well there is an auction every month (given your drive I'd wait, but I don't like to drive). But next month's auction is always insane.

Normal meeting auctions are small like 30ish items and usually have an interesting presentation. if you are close by you should definitely go!

July's auction should be pretty big, last time there was 5 tables worth of stuff. This one is worth the drive !

ususally around 10, but if you live that far. Should wait for the july meeting, unless you want to go for the killifish talk.
