Hey guys,
Just to start well the donation lot list, a very true generous gentleman that I saw today, that asked to stay anonymous, decided to DONATE to the Stuart Grant fundraising program
-5x Caridina Dennerli aka "Sulawesi Shrimp"

These creatures are quite rare and expensive, they are worth $120+ each!
It could be your unique chance to get them, so be prepared to bid hard, because they also come with a reserve.

Also, we are going to auction off 2 books, also donations from Ad Konings to PCS for the SGFP.
The newest release "Malawi Cichlids of the National park" and "Celebrating Cichlids", both in glossy pages and autographed !!

A big THANKS again to Arj, from Addicted2Fish, for donating a brand NEW Rossmount Mover : 3400 Lt/H WaveMaker

 

These pumps are incredible, super sexy and quiet, they are the biggest competitor with TUNZE, I have tried them and they do move a lot of water! They come with 3 yrs warranty, so you can guess how good they are.. not less they are MADE IN ITALY, so they must be AMAZING :P :P

Less than 2 days left to put your lots in! Booking closes at 7pm on Saturday 30th.

Please don't send me PM's on Sunday with your lots, as I will be strict this time since and unfortunately won't have time on Sunday to put them in the list.

 

Also, for the ones that have sent me lots, please check that everything is correct as you want, this time some people have been slacking off and not followed the guide too well :P

 

Ciao!
