After getting into the aquarium hobby, I soon began seriously considering something I wanted since I was a kid reading the Sears catalog: an aquarium coffee table. Searching about various retailers and ebay, I found the prices to start around $400 US and upwards, prior to shipping of around $100.
When I entered the aquarium hobby, I found that Memphis area's Aquarium Society had disbanded several years prior. I also found posts scattered on general aquarist forums from people in Memphis interested in meeting / communicating. Thus was born MemphisAquaria.org.
