Aquarium Club Meeting & Demo Day #2

MarineDepot.com is hosting the March 2013 meeting for the Southern California Marine Aquarium Society (SCMAS) Friday, March 15th at MD Headquarters in Garden Grove, CA. SCMAS is a thriving marine aquarium club based here in Orange County and the masterminds behind the world’s largest aquarium show, Reef-A-Palooza.

Since SCMAS meetings are open to non-members, we thought we’d invite our Facebook fans to the meeting! Aquarium clubs are a great way to connect with a fun group of people who share your passion for saltwater tanks.

Doors open at 6:30 pm and close at 9:30 pm. Entry to the event is FREE—we look forward to seeing you!
