Yes.
Generally, spring auction is on a Sunday, fall auction on a Saturday.

I will be coming as far as my mom says now. My brother wants to go to a Japanese Anime convention in Atlanta the same weekend so my mom said that me and her would come along and go to the auction as well.

Dino,
I've done it again. Poor planning on my part will not allow me to attend. I have 30 appointments on Monday, and will be working a 12 hour day. However, I have made my reservations to be at the Fishhouse next month, and have every intention on being there!

If I had to choose between an anime convention and an aquarium auction, I would have a tough time deciding.
Unfortunately, I live too far away to make it to either.

Aww. Its okay Gunnie. You tell your appointments that they should be whacked on the head for occupying your time. We'll see ya in April.

Glad you can make it, Cory. We'll try to introduce you to some of the more knowledgeable fishkeepers there.

I will leave the pictures for Dino or I to do after work, but can give a quick overview of stock.. (will surely leave something out, but anyway)

1 clown loach at atleast 5"
3 bags (6 per bag) Black Swordtails
around 20 (a box full) of angelfish ranging from quarter size to adult size
Several strains of guppy (some more purple moscow, thaI mosaic I think they were called, and others)
2 or 3 bags of tiger platys


bleh, the mind is shot after 7 hours of driving yesterday. There was more, just can't remember right this moment.

The auction was a blast. I had to work the entire time recording what the winning bid and who the bidder was, so I didn't get to pay as much attention as I would've liked, but we got away with good stuff.

We sold a lot of our 4-6 inch common and snowking plecos.
1 oak 55 gallon stand
2 bags of pastel guppies
1 bag cherry shrimp
1 bag cardinia shrimp
(which breed just as easily as cherry but some guy mentioned that they are $8 a piece on his wholesale list so they went high ... his wholesale list price is inflated, in my opinion.)
3 pond irises
2 bags of water lettuce
1 trio of half black guppies
1 male lyretail swordtail
1 convict cichlid adult male

A couple of bags of tank plants

And more, just can't remember right this moment.

It is also nice to see our friend that has only been in the hobby for 3-4 months do so well. (Coryd)

More to come later!
