The Home of PAPAS

Welcome to the home of the Pittsburgh Area Planted Aquarium Society. 

Have you ever wanted to make the fish in your tank happier and healthier by adding live plants?

Were you ever awed by the beauty of an aquascaped aquarium and wanted to try it yourself?

Thought you were the only one in the Pittsburgh area who cared about such things? PAPAS is here to help!


News -  April 2 Hardscape Workshop!


Are you ready to get dirty? Papas is presenting a hands-on hardscape workshop. Tanks, rock and driftwood will be available to try your hand at setting up the foundation for your next aquascape. Lets see what we can create, refine and dream up as members try their hand at classic aquascaping styles, discuss tips we have learned from past scapes, and maybe help you work through that creative block you may have hit in the past.
