We are a non-profit organization here to help you learn and enjoy the hobby.

Wide Expertise ~

There is no cost to join simply register on our online forum!

Our club is made of individuals throughout the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro and surrounding state who are interested in salt water aquariums! There is a wide range of expertise among our members and sponsors. From novice to nationally recognized aquarists who are wealth of information.

Events/Workshops ~

There is a variety of events that we host, some are a staple while others rotate around.

Expos: In the spring and fall are our hugely popular TCMAS Expos and open to the public. Presents a great opportunity to see vendors of coral and equipment from across the U.S. This is also a popular time to trade between members or sell your own.

Workshops: Anything from making filter socks and fish food to fragging or photography lessons.
Tours: Behind the scenes tours of the Minnesota Zoo, Underwater Adventures are always fun.

Speakers: Industry gurus and authors from around the country.

Business Meeting: Annual business meeting each year, usually in October.

Meetings ~

Great way to get your hands on knowledge in how others run their systems! We often meet once or twice a month at local retail store or a member's home looking to show off what they have or get help and be social. Meetings are informal, vary on day and time, depending on the host's preference. Between the snacks or grilling out we take a few minutes to hear from our host, discuss any club topics, and have a brief Meet-and-Greet among the attendees.
