yah, there's never anything too great in those bags, I just buy raffles to support the club, I am a member. I was hoping I'd hit the 50/50 instead

Where are you in NYC? If possible, I can pick some up for you next time I go to Yonkers and pass by Pet Goods. They always get them in and they have two different types! I picked up six for myself the last time I went.

If you are a cichlid lover this was the auction for you. From African cichlids to angels and discus. It also made me wish I had a marine tank again. The prices for the fish and frags was great! I ended up getting some killifish and I donated a few bags of plants. Overall I enjoyed myself but was looking for more not so common fish and plants. I showed up what I thought was late but ended up being right on time.

My jaw dropped as you kept going up to pickup the raffle prizes. Glad you guys had fun. We should seriously get name tags as a whole bunch of us sat in the adjacent row to you.

That 50/50 auction may bring lots of folks out of the woodwork however, judging by the crowd, it seemed to be more of a salt/brackish dominant community there with a smaller fresh water and even smaller planted tank keepers. I was really surprised at the size of livestock being auctioned but there were definitely some great frag and salt water deals that night. I just wished they auctioned schools of fish rather than individual fish... Just seemed really odd having a small tetra being sold separately.

That would be really cool and maybe if you could for a few of us for the next meet franks aquarium currently sells the pygmae too but it would be either a Brooklyn or long island pickup.

She is far from Brooklyn. You can either get them from pet goods or from franks aquarium for local pickup or have Rachel ship to you.

I put up a G. Steindachneri but there were quite a few very
nice cichlids this time around. I believe the next one is a 50/50
auction, should bring out all the breeders in the club.

A 50/50 is when you bring in fish for auction and you get half and they get half as long as it's $5 and up. The next meeting is Nov.9th, the speaker is Gene Ritter on Reef Diving which I normally wouldn't attent SW but I believe the 50/50 auction is next month. I'll post a question on the forum today, didn't have time when I got home yesterday. I'll post back here later.

I checked the BAS site and facebook page but didn't see anything about the 50/50. But I do remember them saying something about a 50/50.
