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 - There will be NO regular monthly meeting in April!

Instead, we encourage you to attend the following events with us

2015 is going to be a big year for PAPAS. It is our 10th Anniversary, we have strengthened our partnership with GPASI, our display tank at Oddball is doing better than ever, and the AGA is only a short drive away this year. 2015 also brings the return of our strongest group of officers along with some resourceful and innovative new faces in the Society. We invite you to come and join us as we take the club in new and unexpected directions.

We'd like to remind everyone that the AGA convention is rapidly approaching and would encourage everyone to attend!  This meeting is scheduled for April 10-12 @ Washington DC.  More information on the meeting can be found here: 

In order to encourage everyone to attend, PAPAS will be helping members out with their hotel expenses.  If you would like to save even more money and be interested in carpooling (either driving down or taking someone down with you) or splitting a hotel room, please email us at and let us know so we can try to get that arranged.
