The Sacramento Aquarium Society (SAS) is a local fish club that meets at 3:00 pm on the first Saturday (may change to 2nd Saturday because of a holiday weekend) of each month. We are a registered 501 C (3) non-profit organization with an objective to encourage and further the interest of the care and breeding of tropical fish and to promote the exchange of information between amateur aquarists. Meetings typically include a guest speaker, bowl show, raffle, attendance prize, and an auction which includes fish, aquatic plants, and aquarium supplies. Many of the auction items go for less than wholesale prices.
Next Meeting - October 7th
Mega Auction begins at 3:00 pm. Check-in for auction items begins at 1:30 pm and ends at 3:00 pm. This is a big fund raiser for the Society that is open to the public. Please see the Auction Rules for more detail.
Sacramento Aquarium Society (SAS) Mega Auctions are free to attend and participate in. You do not need to be a member of the SAS to sell or purchase items at the auctions.
