Dang, you got some neat stuffs at great prices too.

BTW, I got there around 2:30pm. Got a new book on waterfalls for $4. A $15 gift certificate, a new net and 3 small bottles of fish food all for $11. A large size anubias on a ABS elbow pipe for $8 lol. At the used item table I got a 6 outlet powerbar for $3.

Something new - I saw a sign on the wall and it says - "Bump a item for $2" This is a great idea if you have to leave early and can not wait for an item that you want.

I currently have 2 Red Claws Males, I assume. They are almost 3 inches I have had them for about 1 1/2 years and now keep them in my 90 gallon. I am hoping that of the three I just picked up one is a female.

I arrived just after 10 and left before 2, I find you can get good deals at the end of the auction and sometimes at the beginning always depends what you are after and what others there want. I was kind of shocked at the $20 plus a bag for fancy guppy pairs, But I guess they are worth it

So you see if you bring something of value. people are willing to part with there $$

Yep next time I will bump something I really want, But there was nothing there that I just had to have.

Good luck on the 3 Red Claws...maybe they will all be females
Yeah there were some nice big anubias that when for over $30 and some just under $30
But there was this nice new sump that when for only $50.

I picked up 4 pearscale Koi angels for $10, and 4 C. weitzmani corys for $10. There were deals at odd times. Some fish held their value right to the end. Those guppies that went for the high prices were of good quality, according to Doug White. I think there was a pretty good mix of fish and plants, although the auction was a little smaller than other years, probably around 1,000 items.
