GCCA's Rare Fish Auction is Sunday, February 25

Rare Fish Auction (New Date)

Note: We have moved the Rare Fish Auction to Sunday, February 25th. Due to inclement weather, our breeders were not able to ship fish.

About the Rare Fish Auction

Twice each year, GCCA works with top breeders and importers from around the world to bring in rare and hard to find cichlids. 

We generally get acknowledgement of the list of fish about a week or two prior to the auction and post a list on our website.

Curated Auction

The Rare Fish Auction is held in curated format. The auctioneer will show a slide for each group of fish to be auctioned which will include a picture, care instructions and suggested retail price. This helps inform bidders about the potential purchase.

Purchasing Fish - Members Only

You must be a member of GCCA in good standing to purchase at our auction. Please go to Join GCCA if you would like to join prior to the auction.
