    MarineDepot.com is hosting the November Meeting for the Southern California Marine Aquarium Society (SCMAS) this Friday the 16th 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 the 3reef community to the meeting! Aquarium clubs are a great way to connect with a fun group of people who share your passion for saltwater tanks.

    We’ve invited some of our favorite vendors to the event as well. AquaticLife, JBJ, Continuum Aquatics, Mars Fishcare and Aqua Vision Aquatics are confirmed and will bring along aquarium supplies to show off and talk about.

    Members of our tech team, the Reef Squad, will also demo the latest LED technology so you can try before you buy. Get a closer look at the EcoTech Radion XR30w, Maxspect Razor R420R, Kessil Special Blends and, of course, AquaticLife’s new Expert Series LED.

    We’re going to have beverages and snacks to keep you energized for the evening’s festivities.

    SCMAS, a 501(c) non-profit organization, will be selling raffle tickets to attendees for opportunities to win some very cool stuff (proceeds going to the club). JBJ has agreed to raffle off everything they’re bringing to the meeting! Mars Fishcare is bringing along some cool samples for the raffle. Korallin aquarium supplements, a Korallin BioDenitrator, 2 x Orphek dimmable LED pendants, a Panasonic Blu-Ray Player plus some MarineDepot.com swag will also be raffled off.

    Entry to the event is FREE—we look forward to seeing you!

    Thank you for your kind words! Yeah, we noticed e-commerce companies we admire like ThinkGeek have mini events at their offices and thought, "Dude, we can totally do this!" Hopefully the get-together goes well and we can do this kinda thing more often! Perhaps your reef club could pitch something similar to a LFS and you guys could team up? Montana is a long way from Cali but we absolutely appreciate your enthusiasm and post. If you need any help getting started in the hobby, you can always post here in our board. Tech support is always free and we love talking shop with hobbyists. We check 3reef at least a few times per day M-F.

    As we continue to grow, we hope to sponsor more U.S. aquarium clubs and help them put together more awesome meetings and events. We had to scale sponsorships back when the economy took a hit—things have certainly improved in 2012. We are optimistic 2013 will be even better!
