Just wanted to share this with you all. If you are within driving distance to Atlanta, I would highly recommend coming to the March auction. It is typically our biggest of the year, and I have been to at least one where there was over 1000 bags. There will be fish, inverts, plants, and drygoods.

Anyone is welcome to attend! You do not have to be a member to participate. Here is some more info.



I'll be there for sure and I hope to see some of you all as well!

You should- if you have never been to a big auction before, it will blow your mind! LOL. I moved down here from Louisville several years ago and I had never even seen a fish auction until I joined the Atlanta club. I couldn't believe the selection. I enjoy the club so much, I got on the board of directors!

Anything like this coming a bit closer to Pensacola, FL? I'd love to go, but Atlanta's a bit of a drive >.<

I wish I could go... Of course, I live all the way in Washington, and there is no way I'm going that far for an auction!

Auction is tomorrow!!! If you want me to look for anything for you, you can post it here... if I can get it for a good price and tank it, I will pick it up. I should have several opportunities to check this thread from my phone. I'll be there pretty much all day.

Serious inquiries only please.

Have a great time tomorrow!

Ooops! Maybe post in the b/s/t forum.
That way you'll have everything in one thread rather than seperate pm's.

It's ok, I cleared out some space in my PM box. I'll definitely do a b/s/t thread once I recover from tomorrow... lol....

Anyway, please PM me with requests as Lucy has asked. Oh, and as always, you've gotta have 50 posts or more as per site rules. Thanks!!!

Oh, and if anyone is actually going to show up tomorrow, I'd love to meet you! Send me a PM for my number so you can text me.

Well there was a TON of interesting stuff, as always! There were some stellar deals for a lot of gorgeous Malawi cichlids, in particular. You just could hardly believe the prices. Unfortunately I do not have the means to tank those fish so I wasn't able to take advantage.

We took something like 43 bags, I think 10 or 11 were plants. The rest were bagged this morning. Suffice it to say I got an early start.

Yeah, I was wondering if you were going to be there! It was nice meeting you at CAAS. Hubs and I really enjoyed that auction so I'm sure we'll be back in the future. Your M acora are doing very well in our 120 gallon (5 footer) living room tank by the way. They are some of our favorite fish of all time. If you have any idea of the sexes I would love to know. LOL

What did you get?
I've been up since 4:30 bagging fish so I'm not sure this is the entire list, but here goes:
Laetacara dorsigera
Laetacara curviceps, 2 bags
keyhole cichlids, 2 bags
longfin bristlenose plecos
Neolamprologus multifasciatus, 2 bags from different sources (woot!)
glass belly guppies (see through ones)
Apistogramma cacatuoides orange flash trio
Another Apistogramma cacatuoides orange flash trio, this one is a sibling pair along with an unrelated female that carries the gold gene. Score.
Apistogramma panduro pair
Julidochromis transcriptus Gombe
Pelvicachromis subocellatus pair
Black chin livebearers- new blood to add to my pair, yay!
