Old Salts

Saltwater aquaria are often seen as the domain of the rich—those whose Christmas mornings brought a Beemer, a French bulldog and a Blackglama stroller. And while it's true that a marine aquarium is more pricey than putting a betta in a bowl, with a little ingenuity, you can have a pretty swank saltwater tank on a slipper-socks-and-clock-radio budget. Not sure where to start? Hang with local saltwater gurus 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday at the monthly meeting (and raffle) of the Dallas-Fort Worth Marine Aquarium Society at Stacy Furniture, 1900 S. Main St. in Grapevine. Visit dfwmas.org.
Wed., Jan. 10, 7-9 p.m.
