Hi Fawn,
That is great You don't want to miss the auction, it is a once a year event that gets hundreds of items. Lots of fish and plants that you never see in fish stores too. Killifish, rare angels like Koi, wild livebearers (many collected by club members!), goodeids, lots of species of home bred corydoras catfish, plecos, south american cichlids, central american cichlids, africans, invertebrates, discus, etc. It is amazing what comes though, you will go crazy, LOL! (I know I do) We have several big plant enthusiasts who bring in many gorgoeus and often never seen aquarium and pond plants. Live food cultures of everything you can imagine. You just never know what is going to show up. Get there a bit early so you can take your time looking though all the stuff! Here are some photos from last year.
Best, Barb

I encourage everyone to go to local fish club auctions--they are a great way to see new things and maybe take home some new finned friends!

By the way, anyone with guppies (Fish store or show strains) are encouraged to bring them down and show them in the show! The more the merrier, we will help you when you get here. All you need is the fish in a plain bowl (no gravel or plants). Either in pairs or single males. It is fun, and you might win a prize! Email me at SanDiegoFishes@aol.com for further info

That is so awesome. I plan on grabbing my friend that is a total fish addict and we plan on being there from the beginning to the end.

As for the gupppies. I have some awesome looking one's right now that I've bred & rasied myself that I would love to show off.

Heck, I've already made babysitting arrangements and told my husband he will need to fend for himself that day.
