Very nice Zagz, those are some great pickups. Gotta love Club auctions. But there is something missing no? Where are the pigeon bloods?

Pigeon bloods and other nosy discus. The last pic the flash sort of washes out their colors.

Very cool....we had our big auction yesterday, too (and coincidentally, also had some pigeon bloods there)...I was well-behaved, auctioneered all day and bought only some vintage ornaments and a book (although I did get outbid on some nothos).

You should come visit our show and auction in October.

Beautiful wins! Fish club auctions are the best-great fish, good prices and F-U-N! Plus, you put more $$ in the pockets of other hobbiests, which probably is gone by the time they leave the auction...but still.
