after a new breeder, display fish or something to add to your colony, our mini
auction is your solution. From the common electric yellow, to the more rare species
of cichlids and also L number catfish, we hope that our auction can help!
If you want to bid on a fish, please do so early to save any disappointment
when you miss out for bidding too late. All bids are to be made in whole dollar units.

$5 increments beyond $50 and $10 bids after $100.
