Auction tips?

For clarity, I think the actual practice is 5 bags per morph.  For instance there are several types (dozens?) of aulonocara stuartgranti - mdoka, ngara, etc.  You can do 5 bags of each.

I think that is the same with colored angels - or it has been in the past - 5 black, 5 silver, etc.  I may be mistaken.

Non cichlids have always been accepted - as a donation - hey, at least you get rid of the fish.

I will have my 8 year old daughter and 12 year old son with me.  I figured we would be runners during the auction this time around.  I'd be willing to help in other ways, but will need to remain accessible to my children :)

we have some frogs a few auctions back???  I noticed this one is cichlid only – no plecos or syno cats?

I would try and get closer to 5 fish in a bag


The classic auction is always cichlids only. Now whether it's enforced or not is the question.

Being as Shelly is running the check in, I'm pretty sure it will be enforced.

5 bags per species won't be an issue :)

Thanks for all the help. 


Glad to assist.

Are you just coming for the auction? We could always use an extra volunteer!

2" 3 to a bag should be fine as long as the bag is of decent size. My everyday bag is a 6"X20" and that works well with what you are bagging.

Mainganos I would bag one per bag as you stated.

Just remember per auction rules I believe you are only allowed 5 bags of the same species. My wife is stickler for the rules at check-in :)

Thanks!

Labs are about 2" figured 3 to a bag?  Is 5 too many?

Mainganos are 3.5 - 4" and figured 1 to a bag.

No problem on the naming.  Mostly, unsexed juvies, but do know gender on a few.

Maximizing $$$ is least important to me.  I just want to make ssure the fish survive and whoever ends up puchasing them ends up happy.

That pretty much explains it all.

I would add bag buddies if you have them. If not they are not need. Just a little added insurance.

Do NOT feed for 72 hours before bagging

Bag with fresh water with de-chlor added, not tank water

Clearly label your fish. This includes the scientific name, and a collection points if applicable

Show up with enough time to check in

And please, I see this messed up all the time. 1/3 water - 2/3 air



Big fish - 1 per bag.
Small fish (fry) 1" or so - 4 - 6 total per bag.
