Default Brooklyn Aquarium Society 10/12

I'm going to this. I don't actually need anything, but at the last Big Auction they had repashy and Yourfishstuff vendors and I stocked up on food. Cheap. Besides, I'll be downtown that evening anyway, so I might as well.

Of course if you want to take bets that I come home with something that swims or scuttles, I can't blame you.

I'm no acitydweller, but I figured I'd see if anyone was interested and then, if so, if they want to swap anything. I have work earlier that day, so I probably won't be bringing livestock, but I can do plants.I'm taking off that day, so let me know if you want;

Baby albino bristlenose plecos,
H. formosa fry (I don't have a jillion anymore, but I can spare a few)
Assassin snails
Other snails, the kind that breed out of control if you let them
Watersprite
Java moss
Java fernlets
Various floaters
I have other plants but I either forgot or never knew what they were called, one of these days I should have one of you plant experts over to ID them for me.


I forgot to mention that these auctions usually have awesome deals on tanks. Savvy buyers are used to paying a dollar a gallon on craigslist or Petco, but I've seen tanks with wooden stands and hoods go for less than that at these auctions.

For the sake of full disclosure, it is a trek to get there. There is free parking though, for those of you who drive.

I'm going to try and make this one, I've been to a few and they do have jewels here and there. Overall I have always had a good experience.

yes figuratively speaking lol. Once I went and it took me about 2 hours to get home because the trains were messed up, and I LIVE in Brooklyn.

There is someone who breeds bettas and I believe he also breeds guppies, they were the most beautiful green snakeskin guppies I've ever seen. Almost threw a bid in but I don't do livebearers...but they were gorgeous!

Meowkitty49 if you come and have to leave before the auction is over I'll be glad to drive you to the train so you don't have to walk by yourself. It's a Friday night I can't believe the trains stop running so early, then again I think it's been at least 15 years since I've been on a train. And that goes for anyone else wanting a ride to or from, I'll be glad to take you to a train or home if you're on this side of Brooklyn.

its a shame that BAS has so many great members who do alot of breeding and things but the forum is so dead. I figured with so many breeders and things going on that more people would be on the site. I think they have two senior members who breed bettas who is always at the events. People could just come and look at whats going to be up for auction and if nothing sparks your interest, leave. I'm going to try and bring some plants, snails and other things to give up for auction. It goes to a good cause.

are you a member of BAS? Last meeting they were talking about trying to get that forum going. they have a contest going on for the most posts. It is a pretty dead forum though. I'm going to bring some fish for the auction, it should be fun.
