Group Description

Established in 2002, the Aquarium Hobby Historical Society of America (AHHS) is a fellowship of collectors and amateur historians of the US & global aquarium hobby. Our goal is to reminisce, exchange ideas, educate, and archive hobby history through message postings and file uploads. Trading posts are also welcomed. While our group tends to skew towards North American hobby trends shared in English, we welcome hobbyists from around the Globe! Active members have included several of the U.S. hobby's legends from the 1940's onward, including Rosario LaCorte, Al Klee, Wayne Leibel, Jim Langhammer, Lee Finley, and Alan Fletcher among others. We also have a Private Group on Facebook which is very active.. As an AHHS member we encourage you to access and search BOTH portals - and to add YOUR OWN files. Both are "closed" groups whose content is only open to AHHS members, and all new members must be approved by the AHHS Admin.

CONDUCT & POSTING RULES:
- NO SPAM. Spammers will be thoroughly humiliated and tossed out with great fanfare.
- TREAT OTHERS AS YOU WANT TO BE TREATED. Pleasant, civil discussion is paramount. No flaming or offensive comments are permitted. Religious or political comments in particular are a sure-fire way to turn away members. Deliberately posting to antagonize an individual will result in suspension.
- AVOID OFF-TOPIC POSTS: Please remember why we're here. A couple of tangential messages are fun to keep the conversation friendly, but continued practice is annoying to most members, and clutters our archive. Please use private email for off-topic discussions. We have found over the years that the above rules prevent us from losing members. Continued disregard for any of the above can lead to suspension, dismissal from the AHHS, or calculus lessons in latin by our own Dr. Al Klee. To quote the late, Dr. William T. Innes: "In building a society it should always be remembered that a congenial membership is more important than numerical strength."
