MINI FISH AUCTION
There will be a Mini Fish Auction at the November meeting. 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!
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.
OPEN FORUM: FISH ACCLIMATISATION
& FISH KEEPING TIPS
So you have just bought a bunch of new fish – now what do you do? How do you
introduce these new fish to your current setup? How many is too many?
The aim of this open forum is to hear from our senior members of the club
who have a great deal of experience when it comes to acclimatising your new
fish. In addition to some tips on acclimatisation, there will be a discussion on
general fish keeping tips e.g. water parameters and filtration. Come ready
with any questions you may have and join in on the forum.
