Rare Fish Auction

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.

Fish List

We will post a list of fish about a week prior to the event.

Dear Cichlid friends, thank you for your enthusiastic response on my recently posted photos of the SHALLOW WATER OF KIPILLI. For this, I edit a small movie, from that location with the same title. This recording achieved about to a depth of up to two meters. I hope you find in these images even more inspiration to decorate your aquarium as well as possible for our beloved cichlids, so that they have an optimally simulated natural habitat. I do not know if some of you have such a large aquarium to mimic in a sunken boat , but there are some shots taken at the end of the movie to give you an idea how much life around it is located. I hope you enjoy watch in HD.
