February 1, 2014 at USC Upstate Spartanburg, SC

The South Carolina Aquaria Association is proud to bring you the 2nd Annual Carolina Aquatics Trade Show.  Thanks to all of you, CATS 2013 was a huge success and CATS 2014 promises to be even bigger and better!


Proceeds from last year's show went to the children of the Greenville Children's Hospital.  SCAA has partnered with the Greenville Children's Hospital and we provide the opportunity for every child that enters the hospital to acquire a free betta setup including a free betta of their own.  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 prizes which will be raffled off throughout the day.


General admission is $5 per adult and children 16 and under can get in free with accompanying adult.


Hours are from 11:00am til 5:00pm.


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 raffle and door prizes 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 and raffle 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 calanders for February 1, 2014!


We'll see you there!
