The therapeutic values of keeping an aquarium are well known.

but a CAFE membership will take you to a whole new level…        Join-Now!

  • Visit some of the finest fish rooms in the central Ohio area

The cost of a CAFE membership is $15/person or $20/family. This is a steal if you look at all of the benefits that the club membership provides…..

  • The Spring Swap Meet
  • The Spring Auction
  • Native Fish Collection Trips
  • The CAFE Menu – Our Quarterly Club Newsletter
  • The Fish Room Tour
  • The Summer BBQ Party
  • The Fall Auction
  • The Winter Holiday Party

…..and we are striving to add even more value to a CAFE membership!
