Auctioning Questions for NJAS Spring Auction

The May 7th NJAS auction will be my first visit to an aquarium action. My brother and I were thinking of bringing a few fish/plants to auction. How long does the bidding usually last? Is there a bidding order? Do people trade? Thanks.

I do believe you must be a NJAS member to sell fish and plants.

And, for sellers, the rules are:

Bring you items in between:
Time: Split: (NJAS/Seller)
09:00 - 10:00 - 50/50
10:00 - 11:00 - 60/40
11:00 - 12:00 - 70/30
After 12:00 - Donation

Meaning - auctions are held for the benefit of the club and the seller.
Any item you auction, at minimum, 50% of the sale price goes to the club.
If you bring your items in after 12, all proceeds go to the club.

Bidding per item until going once, going twice...sold!
Buy a bidder card ($2), and you can bid all day, no order, items go the highest bidder.
Some things go real cheap, and I have seen some zebra plecs go for over $100.

The auction is almost a whole day event - probably winds down around 4 or 5. Depends on what shows up...

I thought this was more open to the public hobbyists; there fore you do not have to be a member, just have to register...

I think this auction is opened to everybody, unless I am wrong.

check out njas.net for all the details

The auction (bidding/buying side) is open for anyone who purchases a $2 bidder card.


As for selling items...not sure - please verify with the NJAS hotline - 732-541-1392 or maybe someone else can answer here...
