I'd like to take a moment to invite any Northern Ca members to join the San Francisco Bay Area Aquatic Plant Society or SFBAAPS.
sfbaaps is a regional community of planted aquarium enthusiasts living in and around the greater San Francisco Bay Area, from Monterey to Sacramento. We strive to enrich our membersí aquatic gardening experience while advancing our hobby. To meet these goals, sfbaaps facilitates regular events which include Open Houses, speaker presentations, and plant swaps. This website and online discussion forum serve our membership. We invite you to share in our excitement for aquatic gardening.
Membership is free and open to all members of the greater San Francisco Bay Area.
As a member you get:
Member status on the sfbaaps Forums
To Meet and get to know club members with like-minded interests
Discuss General Planted Aquaria matters
Participation in ďgroup buysĒ of fish, plants and supplies
Ability to purchase plants from our other members, sometimes just for the cost of shipping
See what our members are doing with their tanks
Invitation to our monthly events (Open Houses/Meet & Swaps hosted by our members, LFSs, and other venues)
We enjoy meeting new members, are family friendly, and most of all, love to see all the great tanks put together by our members during open houses. We're also a great spot to share our local resources together. Looking for that perfect piece of driftwood or that rare fish? Saw some stellar fish someone is looking for at an LFS? Your fish are breeding and you need to move some juvies quick? Tap water questions? We've even held tours of the local water district facilities so you can see first hand how your tap water is produced from well, lake, or river to your faucet.
If you love this hobby as much as we do, come share your local knowledge, expertise, and company. In the age of the internet, personal connections are rarer than they used to be. It's fun to sit together with fellow hobbyists face to face over a good meal or coffee, trade a few plants, and discuss our successes and failures to learn from them.
If you have any questions about signing up of want to know more about us, please feel free to send me a message.
