The Chicago Ornamental Shrimp Society was created to connect shrimp and invert keepers in the Greater Chicago metropolitan area. This includes all of Chicago and its surrounding suburbs, southern Wisconsin to include Milwaukee and the NW parts of Indiana.
Our primary focus is educating aquarium hobbyists about keeping dwarf shrimp and other inverts.
Here are a selection of pics from some of our member’s tanks.
Due to the current Pandemic, we will be hosting virtual meetings.
