FW Aquarium Clubs in the DC area?

Hey, just moved to the DC area (Silver Spring, MD). Are there any FW aquarium clubs for me. I don't do Cichlids, still mastering "regular" freshwater fish, lol.

There are two, the Capital Cichlids Association, which meets every month in Silver Spring, at Kennedy High School. Next meeting is February 14:


You can join the forum and come to meetings, without paying to become a club member (although membership does have its benefits). Although we have cichlids in the name, club members keep all types of freshwater fish, so don't worry if you don't have cichlids. (I'm a member of CCA and a member of its board.)

Further away, in Virginia, there is PVAS: http://pvas.com/

I don't belong to PVAS, just because of the location, but it's a great club, too.

Only just saw this now. You may have already found us, but if you haven't, come to GWAPA (Greater Washington Aquatic Plant Association)! (Not to imply that if you've already come, you can't come back Anyway, you know what I mean.)

We meet in MD, DC, and VA, usually in members' homes. Our next meeting is May 23, in Takoma Park, MD. Meeting info will probably be up on the website soon. Follow the link in my signature.
