  • Grab some raffle tickets for our Sponsor prize table full of awesome aquarium hobby items. There will be a major prize to win!! Don't forget 20% of raffle goes towards the Cichlid Preservation Fund.

 

  • In the PCS Kitchen we will have awesome food for you to buy. We will also have hot and cold drinks and snacks. Don't forget 20% of kitchen purchases goes towards the Cichlid Preservation Fund.

Hi all, it would be great if the members who are selling at the auction, send the photos of their lot(s) to me (Bostave) via pm please. Often the photos from the internet searches don't do justice to the lots and will help the potential buyers in assessing the lot twice (once on the auction slide and once during the allotted lot inspection time). If you aren't able to send me the photos that is fine too. I will do my best to find photos that match your auction lots. Thank you.

At least 10 tang lots at the moment....that's more than most auctions, so they are on the come back.

Once the club tank is up and running with the clear themed winner, Tangs, we hope to see more lots at auction as well, just because their behaviour is so amazing to watch.
