About CAPS

The Chicago Aquatic Plant Society is an organization that emphasizes educating hobbyists about starting, keeping, and maintaining aquatic plants in the aquarium.

This site, and also our Facebook Community, serve as a platform where hobbyists can ask questions, exchange ideas, learn about aquascaping principles, and gain other information relevant to keeping planted tanks. If you are in Chicago or the surrounding area, come join us.
