GCCA Meeting August: Rare Fish Auction (Fish list in August)

Members-only Rare Fish Auction

Twice each year, GCCA brings in rare and hard-to-find cichlids from top cichlid breeders around the world. 

Our Rare Fish Auction allows you to bid on over 100 bags of fish, learn more about them, and take them home with you!

NOTE: You must be a paid GCCA member to bid on fish.

Enjoy our Curated Auction!

Each lot will be awarded to the highest bidder.

Bid confidently!

GCCA experts will review the bags of fish for sale via a slide show such as the one below.

Our speakers will share pictures, suggested retail price and care details for each fish.
