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

Hi everyone. I need some help. I have a reef 120 gal. 48x18x24depth. I need a good light for my corals that is under 500.00. Also I see e27 bulbs on ebay are those strong enough? is par better than spectrum at this depth? Its my first tank, please be patient. I've been working at it over a year and my frags are doing well with my orbit but anemones are dying and We just got sick with ick and now have to get a quarantine tank. We are dosing every three days for the next three weeks. Raising the temp to 82 I lost a couple angels, very sad. I need a 16 or 15 gal.for the quarantine tank. I am learning the hard and expensive way about saltwater tanks. Thank you for all your advice and comments.I will try to make the next meeting.Thank you. Have a great day.
