What a day yesterday was! What a blast (and a long day)!! But some people made out with ridiculously good deals. Too bad the people didn't stay all that long .... i can understand since it ONLY finished at 6:30pm (that was a .5 hour auction!)

Thanks a lot to everyone who helped out with the whole thing. Christian ... great auctioneering! Now, i just have one question .... do you have a voice today? I know at 6:30 you were basically done.

anyways .. now i am off to hobble to work (yes the toe must have been broken and appologies i couldn't run much .... **** you door casing!!!)

No voice whatsoever....at best, I can manage a few seconds of a hoarse, broken whisper.

So for a brief update...
The auction was alot of fun... but what a long day!

I went home with about a dozen red zebra fry, about a dozen electric yellow's (2 marked as a breeding pair), a couple of cobalt blues, a half dozen red-fin blues, a pair of pseudotropheus, and about 5 silver sailfin molly fry.

Well... the good news... the heavily overfiltrated cichlid tank looks awesome with all the colourful fish swimming around and ducking in and out of the rockwall. Not sure if aggression is up or down with the overstocking. Lots of movement!

My only losses were one of the pseudotropheus, and 4 of the 5 molly fry. Figure this was due to being in the bags at the auction for oh... 10 or 11 hours or longer.

I ended up with 4 C. afra, 2 P. acei 'white fin', 6 albino bristlenose, some hydro sponge filters, a 5 gallon tank, some corner sponge filters, some riccia, and some 'Indian fern'.

I brought home a few plants, 3 blue juvie zebras, 2 rock kribs, 4 Ocellatus juvies, 2 S multifaciatous, a brine shrimp hatching thing, wire brushes and half the stuff I wanted to sell. I wasn't going to let my rocks go for next to nothing after seeing my 20 lbs of lace rock go for $17!! Yes, we are moving one of these days, but....

Well... everyones out looking for a deal, and with as many items as there were at the auction... it somewhat makes sense that people wouldnt raise their hand til the price went down to under $5 bucks for people to start bidding and bring the price slightly back up.

At least, that was the general tend I saw people doing.

yeah ... funny how that happened.

Well i walked away with a 15 gal tank, an AC 200, some black gravel, a terra cotta planter and a show tank plus an ancestrus species (looks to be like a cross of a BN pleco doesnt look like many photos on Planetcatfish.) ah well. The new show tank has really come in handy today with teh angels breeding again (2 days after the amecas were taken out of the 50 gallon and put into the 15 and the angels startit up again)
