What is CAFE?

CAFE is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the promotion and enjoyment of the aquarium hobby. CAFE hosts a number of events and meetings throughout the year sure to interest novice and veteran aquarists alike. If you have more questions, need advice, or just want to chat with fellow hobbyists, CAFE is the place to be! More information on who we are and what we do is available here on the site, and of course, don't forget to visit our Forum.
