Some Auction Pointers

  • Please use new bags as used ones are more likely to leak. Ideal bags have 2/3 air and 1/3 water. The rebagging charge is $2 if there is an issue with the original bag.
  • Open fish foods and medication are not acceptable auction items.
  • Bumps can be strategically used by sellers or buyers to immediately bring an item to the auction table. Each bump is $2 and can be paid to auction runners.
  •  Members are allowed 20 free lots. Bags should be properly labeled with the member’s number followed by the lot number. Improperly labeled bags may become donations or auctioned off last.  We can always use more volunteer runners; if interested, please inform the auctioneers.
