GSAS B-I-G Annual General Auction


The Greater Seattle Aquarium Society (your local aquarium club since 1971) is having its B-I-G annual General Auction!!

There will be new and used equipment (plants/fish/substrate/lights/filters/tanks/ stands/etc) mostly freshwater but marine folk can score great deals too - we never know what will show up! Most of the plants and fish available will be locally grown: corys, killies, cichlids, shrimp, koi, common and rare aquatic plants (No WA prohibited plants).

You must be a member to sell; everyone can buy: cash and credit cards are accepted; for GSAS members personal checks are also accepted

Our auction will be held at the same larger location we have used the last two years. It will be at the West Seattle Christian Church Gymnasium, 4400 42nd Avenue Southwest, Seattle, WA. The church is conveniently located at the intersection of SW. Genesee St. and 42nd Ave. SW just 6 blocks from the West Seattle Bridge.

No admission charge, accessible, family friendly (but no furry/feathered pets please), lots of free parking

The auction is Saturday April 12th the auction starts at 10:00 until ??; Registration and Check-in starts at 9:00; early check out available

The money raised at this auction helps GSAS bring world class speakers to our community for our free lecture series presented at our regular meetings on the second Tuesday of the month. In the last year we have offered presentations by Ad Konings, Karen Randall, Oliver Lucanus, Lawrence Kent, Chuck Rambo, Tom Barr, Gary Lange, **** Au, Ted Judy, Christel Kasselmann, Mike Wise, Greg Sage, and Ian Fuller just to name a few. Please help us to continue to bring these world class speakers to the Seattle area!

We are generously sponsored by many of the local aquarium shops and numerous aquarium supply manufacturers.

Hey all.... Just moved to Issaquah.... Id love to get back into planted tanks.... My last planted tank was a kitty litter 75gal....(old school) lol.... Anyhow how does th auction work? Is it strictly pay by cash? Or can one use CC? Thanks Josh...

Hi Josh,

Glad you found the website! Yes, CC's are accepted and I'm sure you will be please (and maybe surprised) and the variety of plants offered. If you would like to check out a meeting before joining please come as my guest. You just missed Gary Lange's two talks in March on Rainbowfish but members can get them from our library (there is also a Christal Kasselmann talk available to members). In May we have Rusty Wessel on cichlids.

Hope to see you next Saturday!
-Roy

Hi All,

About thirty-five used aquariums are being donated to GSAS just in time for the auction! They range in size from 10 gallons to 125 gallons, with about half of them being 20s and three of them being 125s. Some filters and T12 lights are also being donated.

Like everything else in our auctions, these items are being sold AS IS. They're used tanks that weren't cleaned before they were put into storage, and they've been in storage for a while. If you're willing to take a chance on cleaning, testing, and possibly re-sealing if necessary, you may be able to find a great bargain.

If you might be interested in a 55-, 75-, or 125-gallon tank, it's a good time to start planning how you'll get it home from the auction.

Our benefactor is Jim Roberts of Roberts Motors and Roberts Property Ventures in Auburn, who is also donating the storage space for all of this until the auction.

See you at West Seattle Christian Church, 4400 42nd Ave SW, this Saturday, April 12, for our Big Auction. Previews and registration will start at 9am, and auctioning will start at 10. The link where sellers can register items can be found at www.gsas.org.
I hope to see you all there!
