you have a triad of awesome clubs in the NoVa area-
Capital Cichlid Assocation (more than just cichlids and catfish) www.capitalcichlids.org
GWAPA- rotates houses for meetings, small but amazing planted club that just hosted the most recent AGA Convention: www.gwapa.org
PVAS- Located in Fairfax VA, it is a general club and is quite large and active as well: www.pvas.com
i am a member of all three

So is everyone here a part of a fish/plant club? What clubs/non club members are in Maryland? Why did you choose to/not to join the clubs?

The CCA is awesome. They are having a convention called The Big Fish Deal in March. Lots of cool things going on there from talks, auctions, contests and even a marketplace. I'm going. You should check it out.

Hey just moved to southern Maryland (near Pax River) and am curious of what PVAS actually does. Is this a place to get fish from people who are breeding them? Perhaps a great way to get Killifish later on? Thanks!

Hey Nick!

Hope you're doing well, man. I joined at the start of this year on both the CCA and GWAPA. Didn't know what to expect at first but I'm very glad I did.

I joined the CCA after I started getting active in their forum. Once I went to the first meeting, I was hooked. Great talks loaded with information. I've already learned so much. On top of that, that auctions are unreal. I've been picking up so many cool fish that you can't just find in stores. Same with plants for super cheap. I've started breeding fish and it's a great place to get rid of fish you don't want, etc. Just put them in the auction.

Above all that, there are some really cool people in the club.

It's a good community and you are exposed to a lot of information and deals. That's an understatement. Very glad I joined.

You're close by man, you should consider going to a meeting to see what it's like. You don't have to be a member to go but once you're there you'll be like "Sign me up!" hahaha.
