Aquarium fish clubs

Aquarium fish clubs or aquaristic societies are social rather than academic associations for fishkeepers. They are to be found around the world. Some clubs include members in all the different aspects of the hobby, while others concentrate on one particularly field, such as cichlids or marine fishkeeping. The two oldest aquarium clubs still in existence are "Gotha Aquarium" in Germany, founded 1882,cite web|url=|title=Nutrafin Aquatic News number 4|accessdate=2007-04-07] and the "Boston Aquarium Society" in the United States, founded in 1912.cite web|url=|title=Boston Aquarium Society|accessdate=2007-04-07]

Many clubs hold fish shows similar to dog shows where fish are judged and awarded prizes. Some clubs also hold auctions where livestock is sold, usually inexpensively, in some cases giving members the chance to obtain to rare and unusual species that have been bred by other members of the club. Internet forums are an important aspect of many clubs, allowing members to easily share information and experiences.
