MINI FISH AUCTION

There are generally around 100 lots of fish and dry goods that come through in a
mini auction, so you are bound to find something that you would love to add
to your tank! Whether you are 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!

BIDDING RULES

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.

Bids will be in minimum amounts of
$1 increments from $1 to $20.
$2 increments from $20 to $50.
$5 increments beyond $50 and $10 bids after $100.

ANDREW PETERSON – CICHLID IMPORT RULES – HOW THEY IMPACT YOU!

Here is your chance to hear all about the current cichlid import rules that we are
currently bound by. Find out what cannot be imported any more and how these changes
are going to impact you! Even though you might not personally import fish in to the
country, these rules can impact on the demand and price of certain fish.
Andrew will be presenting an informative discussion about how these rules
will impact you! It is definitely a talk you do not want to miss!

BAGGING DEMONSTRATION

Sometimes the survival of your fish comes down to the bag it is put in to.
Come along to our meeting this month to get a demonstration on how to bag
your fish to ensure your fish travel well. Learn how much water and air is needed
for your fish as well as some handy tricks to keep that bag tight and not limp!
