Sneak Peek

Introducing the Keystone Clash

Hundreds of aquarium hobbyists show their prized fish at the Holiday Inn of Morgantown, PA on Sept 22-25, 2022. This is the best place to see, show, buy, and appreciate fish and aquariums.  Entry is free!

​The Keystone Clash, now in its fourth year, has been a collaborative effort between the Chiclid Club of York (CCY) and Aquarium Club of Lancaster County (ACLC)Learn more about the clubs sponsoring the Keystone Clash.

What's going on?

Attractions at the convention include:

  • See the Aquatic Showroom.  Dozens of hobbyists contribute to this showroom with hundreds of tanks and thousands of fish.

  • Learn from Guest Speakers.  Knowledgable subject experts on a variety of topics will be sharing their wisdom.

  • Meet hobbyists.  Two hobbyist clubs, the Chiclid Club of York (CCY) and Aquarium Club of Lancaster County (ACLC), are producing and attending this event; in addition, hobbyists come from as far away as Canada.

  • Involve the family.  Our Give a Kid a Tank event is a favorite every year: every kid is invited to come get a free tank and discover the joy of fish keeping for themselves.

  • Earn honors for your fish.  The Keystone Challenge includes separate competitions for dozens of different classes of fish; trophies are awarded to hobbyists who bring the best fish in their class.  

  • New for 2022: Aquascaping Competition.  This popular hobby involves designing a beautiful world inside the aquarium by using plants, stones, and substrate to set a scene.

  • Attend the auction.  Buy and sell a variety of items including fish, tanks, accessories, and more.

  • Stock up with our vendors.  This is your one-stop-shop: whatever you need, someone here is probably selling it.  

...And more!
