Sacramento Aquarium Society

Tomorrow, July 6th, @OVT and I are going to a meeting at the local Sacramento Aquarium Society. If you are interested in going as well, here are the details. We will be arriving around 6:00 pm.



The Speaker is: Dean Tweeddale - "The In’s and Out’s of Collecting Fish in the Peruvian Jungles"
There is a fish/aquarium plant auction afterwards. Not sure of the extent of it as this will be my first meeting.

Just for posterity... those that may be interested in going to meetings/joining the Sacramento Aquarium society.

Had a great time.
Decided to become a member.

Meetings are held first Saturday each month @ Round Table pizza in a large banquet room.

Lots of people! Way more at meeting than expected- maybe 50? All tables full with some people standing against wall. Happy came earlier to get good seat.
Presentation- very interesting and well presented on collecting fish in tributaries of Peru.
After presentation 110 items in auction! plants, fish, shrimp, snails, books, and hard-goods.

Ill be there next month- maybe will see you.

I'm in agreement with @Discusluv: a good experience. I did not expect to spend 4 hours there but the time flew by. The presentation was well done: educational, engaging, uplifting, and with a good dose of humor. Well done and well organized, especially with so many people present. A friendly crowd of all ages and walks of life.

SAS struck me as 90% fish focused, while SFBAAPS as 90% into plants and aquascaping. A perfect combination.

@OVT, @Discusluv, glad to hear it was a fun event and worth attending, that's good to know. I'd be interested in attending the next event, it's be great to meet local hobbyists.

It is the first Saturday of every month. So, next meeting is on August 3rd. You do not have to be a member to participate in auction. Auction is open to public.

Great time at Sacramento Aquarium society! Picked up six fish- 3rd generation Gary Lange Melanotaenia praecox. They are beautiful!
My first rainbows. Im excited.
Picked up some nice crypts and some amazing micro-swords. I will need to bring something of my own to sell so I can at least break even next time.

I was at last months meeting (and one before) but didn't make it to this months meeting.... wasn't sure about coming or not, then figured I'd make the 2 hour drive, then a friend's tank sprung a leak so had to get a replacement tank for them.... and never made it down. Perhaps next month? If things go smoother...
