A very nice list and congrats to everyone who picked them up!

Wish that I wasn't currently shut down or I'd have jumped at the Teleogramma for sure -_- Had been looking for the brichardi on a list for almost a year and just saw them starting to show up again in the last month.

Here is some behind the scene pictures.
We store all the fish in temporary "fish room" for 5 days with only one casualty due to aggression.

Thanks everyone, this is personally the thing we / I do for the club that I enjoy the most -

It's a true benefit for members, we get the chance to buy unusual fish and we occasionally get some new members or old timers getting back involved in the club.

Good point about circulating fry from rare fish spawns, Bob.

I would also like to thank Jason for the slide and bag label preparation without which we bidders would be doing a lot more guessing in the dark. - Which also helps the Association cover more of the cost of the service. So, another thanks to Jason, Mario, Mike and Bruce, GCCA Board members all.

Another fantastic rare fish auction. Jason did a great job again with selection, and to the guys who transported, and housed the fish, my hat is off to you. That's the hardest job there is.

Also.......Glad to see that lots of members that share fish got some of the rarer species. Means we will see some fry, and see the groups get circulated through the club, instead of disappearing, or finding their way to aquabid.

Let's give a large thanks to Mario, he created a second fish room in his Garage overnight with about 12 + tanks on Tuesday and was up till 1am (potentially later as that is when I left) last night unbagging labeling and ensuring the fish are ok .
