I'm having trouble finding out more information about the event, what is the cost to attend? Is the auction for members only? Is this a good place for someone looking to get a first pair of killifish? Thanks.

Congratulations Warlock, you picked up some great fish. Sorry to hear about the male jumping ship though.

How where the prices? I was only able to be there Saturday for the presentations, and had to work Sunday. I hate that I missed the auction.

Great, seeing those prices makes me hate missing the auction even more. I told my boss last week he owed me big time for missing the auction.

He said he would get me breakfast tacos next time he came to town....

I like good breakfast tacos, but that just doesn't cut it. lol Non-hobbyist just dont get it.
