January 30, 2016 at USC Upstate, Spartanburg, SC

The South Carolina Aquaria Association is proud to bring you the 4th Annual Carolina Aquatics Trade Show.  If you're not a member of SCAA, please join.  Memberships are free and it only takes a few minutes to sign up.  Thanks to all of you, CATS 2015 was a huge success and CATS 2015 promises to be even bigger and better


A portion of proceeds from past shows have gone to the children of the Greenville Children's Hospital.  SCAA partnered with the Greenville Children's Hospital to provide a free betta setup, including a free betta, to children in the hospital.  There is no greater feeling than seeing a child's face light up and knowing that you had a part in putting that smile on their face.  Giving back to the community is what SCAA is all about!


Vendors from all across the southeast will bring you a wide selection of Freshwater, Marine, and Reef livestock as well as aquaria related equipment, food, additives, and many, many other supplies.  We have a great line up of speakers discussing a wide range of topics covering marine, reef, and freshwater aquaria.  We also have a large selection of door prizes which will be drawn for throughout the day.


Hours are TBD.

General admission is TBD per adult.  Children 16 and under admitted free with accompanying adult.


Looking for that hard to find freshwater shrimp or exotic plant? Or some cool plecos? Maybe you have some salt in your veins and you're looking to find that one (or two...or three...) perfect coral to complete your reef tank? We've got something for everyone.


We have tons of door prizes, auction items, and an impressive lineup of speakers covering some interesting topics concerning freshwater and marine aquarium related issues.  


Check back for a full show schedule including speakers, door prize listing, and auction items!


Facilities are spacious and will provide you with a friendly environment to shop, browse, and socialize with aquaria hobbyists from a variety of backgrounds.  If you're an old salt or a newbie to the aquarium hobby, be sure to stop by!


Mark your calender for January 30, 2016!

We'll see you there!
