Yes. Sometimes we do an Open House at a member's home. Sometimes a LFS hosts us, this time we are using a park. Last time was a Pizza place.

We try to rotate between South Bay, SF and East Bay.

Hi, living in Santa Cruz, from Berkeley. I'm newish to hobby and locally we have 3-4 lfs and a pet-smart. I don't particularly like Tropaquarium for their lack of selection or service, but they cater more to SW or reptiles perhaps.

So far I am most impressed by Brown's Eco Aquarium, very happy tanks and lots of nice plants. Fish marked not for sale are a sign of the owner's love of his hobby/livelihood IMO.

The pet emporium in capitola is a good resource, they have a lady there who is knowledgeable about disease treatment, however they also thought I was strange for doing a fish less cycle. Maybe a little old school, and the younger employees are just clueless kids with local tude. A bit pricey but well stocked on equipment and medications.
