Every month we have an educational program on something related to tropical fish. Some examples of programs that we have had at our club would be "Anabantoids, Fish that can drown" by Mike Hellweg and "Aquarium Plants for Those with a Black Thumb" by Scott Davis. These guys are experts in the field of tropical fish keeping and the programs they gave were awesome! Plus there is time after the program to talk to our speakers one on one with any questions you may have. Our Member meetings are on the second Wednesday of each month at 7:00 pm at Immanuel Lutheran Church 4911 N Knoxville Ave. Peoria, IL. Often we go out afterwards to talk fish and socialize. It's always a lot of fun! Members receive Fish Tales, our monthly newsletter that covers what is happening in the club, a list of upcoming fish related events such as nearby swaps and auctions, and interesting articles. TCTFS has auctions twice a year that members put on, and an annual fish show at Northwoods Mall. We often have mini auctions at our member's meetings. TCTFS members have a lot of knowledge and experience in fish keeping and breeding and are more than willing to share their knowledge with new members. Often we car pool to go to swaps and auctions in Champaign, Chicago, etc. We would love for you to visit our group sometime!

Chicago Livebearer Society
1 member Illinois
Website: "chicagolivebearer.com" The Chicago Livebearer Society was created in 2011 by Rick Borstein, a local area hobbyist and long-time member of the Greater Chicago Cichlid Association. Although an experienced breeder of cichlids, he had always been interested in livebearing fish. Like many hobbyists, he had kept livebearers like platies, guppies and swordtails as a kid. He picked up a few livebearing fish locally, but wondered how he would be able to locate some of the more unusual species. In 2008, Rick attended his first American Livebearer Association convention which was an eye-opening experience. There he met many dedicated hobbyists interested in livebearers. He also learned about the poor conservation status of many livebearing fish in the wild. The 2011 ALA was the aegis to make a difference in the local Chicago community. With the support of a few local livebearer hobbyists such as Mark Schmidt and Mike Schadle, Rick put out the word that he was starting a club. The club first met informally in June 2011 in Wheeling, IL. Ted Coletti, Ph.D. the author of Aquarium Care of Livebearers, was the speaker and 17 hobbyists attended the first meeting. On September 18, 2011, a constitution was drafted and signed at the second meeting of the club. A board was elected: - Rick Borstein, President - Mark Schmidt, Vice-President - John Sobel, Secretary - Jason Libasci, Vice-President The Chicago Livebearer Society is dedicated to the advancement and/or dissemination of information related to all aspects of the biology of livebearing fish, their maintenance and breeding and captivity, and the conservation of habitats of livebearing fish

Saskatoon Aquarium Society
1 member Saskatchewan
February 2010 marks the 40th anniversary of the Saskatoon Aquarium Society. Website: "saskatoonaquariumsociety.weebly.com" It began as a group of eleven people who decided to form a club dedicated to the aquarium hobby. The first meeting took place in February 1970, and was held in a private home. Before long, a more formal meeting time and place was established. The Bessborough Hotel was chosen as its first location. Meetings were held on the last Sunday of each month at 1:30 p.m. By autumn of the same year, a constitution had been proposed and accepted. The Nekton (our quarterly Publication) and the Breeder's Award Program were started; a club library was established. In early 1973, the club had to find a new meeting place. For a short time, it was based at the downtown library. The next move was to St. Thomas Moore College, where it remained for the next 16 years. The first Public Home Show was held in 1977. The tradition continues until present with Home Shows each year and Public Shows every two years. In March 1989, the club moved the meeting site to St. Timothy's Church Hall. This was the steady location until late 2009, when St. Timothy's Church changed ownership. The meetings are now held at Faith River Church 2625 Preston Avenue South at 2:00 p.m., on the last Sunday of each month. The club is very active, with both guests and regular members attending. Along with the very successful auction, there is usually a guest speaker presenting a variety of aquarium hobby topics. The club is a colourful one, with members specializing in many aspects of the hobby. We are currently in an expansion phase. Our new Website/Forum has been launched, and the number and diversity of hobbyists who attend is growing. This is an exciting time for old and new members alike. Come down and check us out! We welcome any Aquarium Hobbyist to join! It's a great way to meet others in the hobby and to make new friends who share a common interest.

Michigan Koi & Pond Club
1 member Michigan
Website: "mkpc-se.com" The MKPC was founded March of 1996 after the founder, Gil Orris, took some advice from a pond supply store on how to get rid of algae in his pond which resulted in the death of every fish in his pond except one. After losing 15 mature Koi he felt there had to be a better way to learn about the hobby and that others in the area were probably also experiencing “learning pains” and may want to join in. Seventeen people attended that first meeting at his home and the club has met continuously since then, enjoying, seeing and learning about the many members ponds and gardens. We are one of the oldest and largest Koi and pond clubs in Michigan and a member of The Associated Koi Clubs of America, AKCA. We have produced an annual pond and water garden tour since 1998 with homes representing at least 20 communities and have had well over 5000 people learn a little about our hobby through these tours. We have also produced 3 different educational programs using slides, video and computer technology on our hobby that have been presented to various groups and are available to other groups at a modest fee. We have members just learning about the hobby that have yet to have their first pond to members with 3 decades of experience in the hobby. Some members have very small ponds with either a few or even no fish to one of the largest being a beautiful garden with half a dozen ponds from 1000 gallons up to one of 25,000 gallons and more Koi than you can easily count. We welcome members to our club regardless of whether you are a newcomer or an experienced pond keeper. We all have something to give and knowledge to share. We feel our newsletter and web site are part of our educational mission. Over the years our club has been blessed to be affiliated with many knowledgeable vendors. The first association we developed was with Wiegands nursery in Macomb Township, and have been very fortunate to have had the support and help of others such as Barsons Greenhouse, Bordines, English Gardens, Grass Roots Nursery, The Pond Place, Tropical Treasures, Wiegand’s, and others. We have had award winning displays and presented educational events at the Bloomfest at Cobo Hall, the Ann Arbor Garden Show, a Koi Health and Wet Lab Seminar with Vicki Vaughn, organized the 2009 KOI Symposium and had Kodama Koi Academy I and II. On Labor Day weekend 2012, the MKPC held it’s first Koi Show. New members and guests are always welcome. Persons interested in attending a club event can look on this website and/or contact our webmaster. We encourage you to attend and learn about this fascinating, enjoyable, and rapidly growing hobby, and to share your knowledge and experiences with us!
