Do all sellers need to be preregistered? I was viewing the items on the my auctions page, is that all the items that will be there? Or can sellers bring stuff the day of without preregistered?

All sellers will be pre registering. They have until 7 pm Saturday night and typically most of the items get entered Friday night to Saturday afternoon. Some really nice new items donated by manufacturers for this auction.

IF you are looking for BNIB lighting at less than wholesale pricing then this is the auction to be at. The 48 inch LED HO from Zoomed and the 48 inch Coral life or seriously sweet with no minimum. I really wish I had 4 foot tanks. But on a brighter note I am hoping to scope up some of the other donations. The sponsors have really out did themselves this time.

Hey Splak you can check out the items entered simply by going to the mygroupauctions website and registering. You can look at all the items entered and many sellers include pictures of their actual items. You can then create a shopping list of items you want in advance. The day of the auction the auction is live on line so you can see the items that are still left to be auctioned. Plus there will be two screens there to show not only the item that is going for auction but also the item that is next up for auction.

PS I did see some different shrimp listed and adult longfinned bushy noses. Go check it out!

From past experience, how long does one of these auctions usually go for?

I'm still undecided on whether or not I'll make the trip down to the city. Will likely decide in the morning.
With over 900 items the PRAC auction will probably finish between 3:30 - 5:00pm.

Hope to see you there. Looks like a lot of great stuff online.

The auction was great. Picked up some mixed and mieshlings as well as a 10 gal, stand, filter, heater , gravel, etc. Dragged hubby there and he wasn't too bored lol.

Missed a few good buys cause they go so fast and sitting near the front had my view blocked now and again 😕 but overall happy with my purchases 👍

All in all a great auction. Started on time at 10:00am and finished at 3:50PM. A good number of items at 980. Lots of great aquarium equipment, both BNIB (brand new in box) and good used stuff too. The hall was at capacity with standing room only for most of the day.

The highest priced item: The Coralife 48" LED light fixture went for $250, which is a bargain considering its a $659 MSRP & BAonline has it 'on sale' for $379+HST.

The highest priced fish item: Pair wild fish, Betta siamorientalis went for $100
