Southern Maryland Marine Aquarium Society (SMMAS)
Southern Maryland Marine Aquarium Society
The Southern Maryland Marine Aquarium Society (SMMAS) is a friendly gathering of folks from all walks of life that share an interest in Marine Aquariums.  It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or an expert, we welcome everyone.  We have regular meetings to exchange ideas, discuss current conditions in member’s tanks, share and trade corals, and plan field trips.  Our goal is to educate ourselves as well as the general public about the saltwater aquarium hobby and to raise awareness of the delicate reefs we take care of, in and out of our aquariums.
Upcoming Events:
Please see the forum for our upcoming meetings and locations.
Club Projects:
SMMAS has 3 schools participating in our program to reach the next generation of Marine Hobbyist. Our goal is to teach these children about the dangers our natural reefs face today and what we can do as hobbyist to help.

Southern Middle School:
The Southern Middle School Tank is making a come back from a major catastrophe last year. Mr. Klapper has done an outstanding job rebuilding the Southern Middle School educational tank. All together this build is over 400 gallons. There are several tanks including a 150 gallon Reef tank, a 150 gallon FOWLR, a 125 gallon submerged aquatic vegetation (SAV) Chesapeake Bay tank and a Mosquito Fish breeding tank. More information about this tank build can be found on Mr. Klapper's website.
