JRAS is an educational and social organization focusing on the aquarium hobby.

We hosts meetings at 7:00PM the fourth Wednesday of each month at Logo Advantage, 8007A Mechanicsville Turnpike, Mechanicsville, VA 23111.

Our meetings are open to anyone interested in attending.  Most meetings will feature a guest speaker, open discussion, and an auction for equipment, fish, and plants.  Refreshments are provided and there are raffle prizes for both members and guests. 

Each fall we run an annual All-Day Auction which includes hundreds of lots, many of which are donations from our generous sponsors.  You will find attendees from both the area and nearby states both buying and selling.  It’s a great opportunity to get into the hobby, find a deal on the item you’ve been searching for, or perhaps score a deal on the rare fish you have never seen before.

Register at My Group Auctions to see items available.
