Thanks for the comment. We do welcome anyone who are interested to come to our meetings. That is one reason why we make a post here at APC
We make the first meeting complementary so should the people who come be interested, they can always come to their 2nd meeting and become a member then.
Our main goal is to really create a club dedicated to aquatic plants because there are already many great fish clubs out there. We wanted to create something that focuses more on the aquatic plant keeping, with a particular interest toward Nature Aquarium. So yes, even the fish is an integral part of it as a planted tank would be life-less without its actors---the fish!
As for the auction and other related news, Houston Fish Box and other clubs are always welcomed to post here
So the members can always come and see what is going on around the Greater Houston area and its surroundings. So once again, thank you so much for sharing this event with us
