So do I, e.g. Blyxa sp. "vietnam", Cyperus helferi...

I'm crying. Couldn't make the auction.

I picked up some cyperus helferi, rotala magenta, and rotala wallichii. 2 different kinds of rainbows and some killies. There was almost too much to choose from. What was the bag count, Jay?

Around 600 bags. I got there at 8am and left 7pm. Auction wasn't done.

At the end I picked up a bag of Albino cories, Nothobranchius holland, Red albino sword tails, Salvinia minima, Java moss.

As for as plants, I have yet to see such a good selection of "non-exotic" plants. Anubias, Aponogetons, Rotala, Ludwigia, Cryptocoryne, Echinodorus sp. were in their prime.

You guys missed it.

It was incredible! So many plants and fish!

Jay those red albino swordtails were amazing! I wish I had room for them.

I bought two C. retrospiralis, Cyperus helferi, some Phyllanthus fluitans, a really nice Echinodorus amazonicus (I don't know where I am going to put it, but it was too nice to let go) and the Blyxa sp. "Vietnam" all for $22. I bought the Blyxa for $2! :shock: I think I should give Jay a couple of more bucks to soften the blow! I am glad you got the Salvinia minima, Jay. It is the M. mattagrossense of the floating plants!

The sword plants and Aponagetons were amazing. Tons of Vals and lots of interesting stem plants and crypts. One of the best selections i have seen also!

The auction was a hoot! Everyone had a great time and everyone got amazing deals!

Now I'm kicking myself. I decided not to try to come since I knew it would be 2 or 3 PM before I could get there.

You guys missed it.
So it seems.
