It was a great auction and everyone did really well.....even Meghan at her first experience auctioneering.

I am just glad that I brought 35 lots, and came home with a single plant...has to be a record for me.

Still trying to figure out what you had written on the tank I got and then scratched out Toirtis.

For some reason right after the first table I figured you were Lot #8....

All the plants I got were from Lot 25..

If the one guy hadn't been there I think plant would have gone for cheaper.. He wouldn't let plants go for any less than 7 dollars.. And he bought a ton of stuff.

Sig updated..

I was going to put that 10g fluorescent canopy on that tank, then decided to make them seperate lots to increase the overall number of lots that I brought.:P

oh I am so glad you didn't.. I was the only one that cared that it was black silicone so it went for less than some of the other 10 gallon tanks.. With the canopy I think I would gotten out bid..
