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!

Saturday, August 6th is time for the PAPAS annual Field trip! This year we are returning to the Boyce Mayview Park to observe and study aquatic plants in their natural environment. Bring a spare set of clothes, good boots and drinks to stay hydrated. Remember, removing plants from a Park is prohibited, this is for observation and discussion. If you wish to collect minnows, inverts etc. you MUST have a valid PA fishing license. We will be meeting at noon at Ardolino's Pizza, 1141 Boyce Road, Upper St. Clair, PA 15241 before going down to the water. Hope to see you there!
