What happens at a PRAC Aquarium Club Meeting ?

Club Meetings consist of information about aquarium events, a speaker or other program presentation, a social break, guess the fish game, a bowl show, club affairs & our much anticipated Mini - Auction. There is sometimes a sales table with great bargains & perhaps even a raffle too. The December meeting is a family Christmas Social. We also encourage member events, from time to time, such as trips or tours to Members Fish Rooms, Buffalo, N.Y. or Local Fish Stores, Toronto Zoo or possibly the New Ripley's Aquarium in Downtown Toronto.

Monthly Mini - Meeting Auction
Members can bring to a meeting any surplus fish, invertebrates, plants, tanks, equipment, books or other aquarium related items to be auctioned off to the highest bidder. All live items must be in good health & all used equipment must be in working order. PRAC club will retain a $1 fee per item auctioned off & the remainder will go to the selling member. So, if your item goes for $20, then you get $19 & the club gets $1. And likewise, if your item sells for $3 you get $2 & the club $1. Auction Rules are similar to Our Annual Auction, except a little more casual with no pre-registration required. We may occasionally use the MyGroupAuctions.com system from time to time.

Auction Rules       My Group Auctions Website      

Our Elections are held each & every year at our June meeting where all members have a chance to vote for the Executive positions in the PRAC Aquarium Club. Nominations for the executive positions are accepted starting at our May meeting.

Non-Members & Guests are encouraged to come to any our meetings. And, of course, first meeting is free. Come on your own, with a friend or a group & see how great it is to join with other like minded Aquarium Hobbyists. Membership is open to all Aquarium Enthusiasts and Hobbyists in the Greater Toronto Area or GTA, Golden Horseshoe or even abroad. Our members are not only from the Region of Peel (including, Brampton, Caledon, Mississauga), but also as far away as Barrie, Collingwood, Huntsville & the GTA. Anyone can become a member who wishes to share the excitement of fish keeping and the aquarium hobby.

Our biggest event of the year is our Annual Auction which attracts fish hobbyists, both buyers & sellers, from far away as Montreal. All are welcome at our Annual Giant Aquarium Auction held in Early November.

PRAC … A Little Club History:

A Fish Club was born in 1970 / 71 as The Brampton Aquarium Club. Over the years we've attracted many Aquarium enthusiats from other municipalities such as Caledon, Mississauga, Etobicoke & elsewhere.

In early 2008, we changed our name from Brampton Aquarium Club to Peel Regional Aquarium Club to better reflect who we are and the community in which we meet.

Most of our Aquarium Club members are from the Region of Peel, Brampton, Caledon, Mississauga, but we also attract member hobbyists from as far away as Barrie, Collingwood, Guelph, Huntsville & even Toronto. Anyone can become a member who wishes to share in the excitement of fish keeping, Whether you're a 'newbie' or a veteran hobbyist.

Got A Fish Question?

If you want to find out the latest information on fish keeping or have a problem that needs a solution, come to our meeting and ask the experts. Our friendly environment has attracted many new & experienced aquarium hobbyists. We hope you may be our next member.
