My gf and I were planning on heading over to check it out, and see our first auction, well of any sort!

I was wondering if you can register as a buyer after the auction has begun, and also how long it tends to run?
I am not sure if well make it there by the 10am start, and was concerned that we wouldn't be able to bid (like the majority, not that we need anything else )

Graham.

This was my first auction, and had my gf and I had a great time.

There were a lot of great deals and I managed to score four really nice Gold Angels for $10, three PB angels for $12, and an Ehiem 2213 for $32! Can't complain about that at all!

I can't wait until the next one coming up, and will hopefully add some of my own stuff to be auctioned. Thank to the Brant Aquarium club for putting on a great auction. (beer)!

I was there briefly, it was so hot and crowded I couldn't handle it long term, though I did see some decent deals. I stood in the hallway bid on one item and left, the venue was too uncomfortable for me to justify staying around much longer than half an hour.

Love going to these auctions but can't stand the people trying to monoplozie stock. Be respectful to fellow members, don't bid for the sake of bidding. We all go to have some fun, get some hard to find items, talk about fish. If your there to liquidate your weeks pay, stay home.

Nothing wrong with monopolizing stock. If I intend to breed a fish or keep a group I pick up as many as I can. Several years ago I picked up all of Charlie's Corydoras hastatus at 2 different auctions just to get a large enough group for a show tank. The only rule to really follow is don't pay more for an item than its worth to you.
