Hi All,

One week from tomorrow, on Wednesday November 14th, doors open at 6:30 and auction begins at 7:00PM. At our last plant auction we auctioned over 500 bags of plants, freshwater shrimp, and fish - many varieties that you don't find at the local aquarium shops. You do not want to miss this event!

Hi All,

This Wednesday night! Our last plant auction had 500 items sold in about 3 hours; don't miss out!

Roy, were you by chance the auctioneer in the kilt and fish hat?

That was Phil, Roy was the one at the door greeting everyone if you were there earlier.

Great auction everyone! I bought WAY too many plants and have to figure out where to put them all! :confused1: I am happy with the selection I did get though and looking forward to seeing what I can do with them, lots of new species for myself.

Hi All,

Thank you all for helping to support your local aquarium club! Thanks to our over 140 guests and members that attended last night, GSAS had our most successful aquarium plant (and fish) auction ever - with over 600 plants and fish auctioned in a little under 4 hours. The auction helps GSAS fund the excellent, knowledgeable, world recognized speakers we bring to the Northwest (Ad Konings; Chuck Rambo; Oliver Lucanus; Tom Barr; Karen Randall; Gary Lange; Christel Kasselmann) and share with our community several times a year. Our speaker meetings are open to all; please check us out at GSAS.org.

Thanks everyone!
-Roy

@bluestems - LOL! I'm glad you had a good time! No, that was Phil our 'Iron Man' auctioneer; my legs aren't that good!

@Jubs - sounds like an excuse for another tank Jubs!

@Rob in Puyallup - maybe next time Rob; April's big auction is on a Saturday

Jubs 11-15-2012 07:29 PM

LOL Roy, I have another one ready to go I just don't have the equipment for it yet, trying to figure out lighting and filtration still.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to arrive before the auction began so I missed out meeting Roy. Next time :smile:

Hope to meet you another time then!


ps-The amanos I picked up are doing a great job on my tank and coaxing the 3 little juvies I have already out of hiding. :smile:

It was great meeting you as well! You're welcome, if you need anymore let me know. I used about half of what I gave you in the tank I bought it for so I have a more, also have the Ludwigia sp "Red" if you still want some.

Oh and fyi I picked up the same nana petite for $9 :hihi:
