Hi,

 

I haven't been to an Auction before and just wandering if we are allowed to ask more about a particular fish that would be for sale?

 

For example, I would like to know who is putting the following fish up for auction and if they have some pics of the parents??

 

- 5x aulonocara stuartgranti 'chipoka orange' MM FFF 5-7cm

- 4x Aulonocara maulana 4cm

 

Thanks,

Spiesie

good questions and thanks for asking :)

 

Sellers are typically labelled on the lot unless they request not to be. We can grant the request but sellers need to bear in mind this will pose questions in the minds of potential buyers.

 

For each auction I try to get a powerpoint prepared of each lot and provide an example of a specimen of that lot. I typically just rip an image from the net somewhere but I can use photos of actual stock or parentage of people want to send them to me prior to me doing the spreadsheet. It's in the sellers court but we can certainly accommodate your request if we get the images in time.

 

cheers,

Great, thanks for the reply. I have also already been contacted by one of the sellers ^_^

 

Good to know that there is a powerpoint with images and seller information. Helps a lot with rookies like myself :blink:

 

Also, the names that you put on the lot, is it the PCS username or their actual name?

 

Cheers,
