The Marine Aquarist Roundtable of Sacramento (or MARS) would like to welcome you to our club’s website. If you are new here, there are a few things that we would like to let you know about MARS and what we have to offer.

MARS is a Sacramento, California based regional club where the knowledge and materials required to keep marine animals are enthusiastically shared.

Our goal is to help educate our membership about saltwater aquariums. If you are just beginning or have had saltwater tanks for years, this is the place for you!

Membership is not required, and all are welcome. Free membership are available, and members receive 10%-20% discounts at most local saltwater aquarium stores and 10% off at Round Table Pizza the night of the meetings. Ask about membership at the next meeting!

Monthly Meetings

Monthly Meetings

The MARS monthly meetings are held every other month on Friday or Saturday evenings. Please check
the Facebook site for updated meeting announcements.

The meetings are held at the Roundtable Pizza in the shopping center near the intersection of Greenback and Madison in Folsom.

Please join us!

Hello. I am a student teacher in a Roseville PCOE preschool classroom. I am attempting to introduce a two-week ocean unit into the science center. I was curious if your group had any coral skeletons or other materials that would help the young children learn about the ocean that you would be willing to sell (I was told not to spend more than $10) or let me borrow and I could return them at the end of the two weeks. Anything is greatly appreciated, thank you!!!
