Are There A Planted Tank Clubs Near Oakland?

Okay, I'm having a lot of issues with my planted tank and I need some people to come and help me figure it out here. Does anyone know any clubs or societies that are knowledgable in planted tanks and maybe keeping shrimps that live around my area?

Oakland CA area.

I'm just frustrated and depressed and this is suppose to be a fun hobby, but for me it hasn't been very much.

Is there a closer location consisting of maybe a smaller group of people?

Nope.
There are semi local individuals in the group.
Go to a meeting, then get to know folks, or ask around if anyone lives close to Oakland. Then perhaps one may come over and help.

Take a look at SFBAAPS again and maybe consider coming to an open house/swap. We hold meetings in different parts of the bay to ensure that it's accessible to just about everyone. This past weekend, the meet was conducted in the Southbay. There was one in Alameda a couple of months ago, which is pretty close to Oakland...

Meetings can consist of 20-40 people, which is a manageable size.

Natty, none of the clubs exist at a single physical location. The members all live within a defined geographical area and get together monthly for meetings. Agree that your best bet is SFBAAPS. If you join (no membership dues, just sign up online) you can come to the meetings that are closer to you or if you have enough room where you live you could offer to host a meeting.
