Is anyone interested in carpooling down from Richmond area? I may or may not be bringing fish, but may have some transportation concerns (i.e. my car smells like it's on fire after about 10 minutes these days).

I went to their last auction and it was a pretty good turnout.

Raleigh auction is just 6 days away, on Sun Nov 15. I added about 40 items to the registry yesterday at (http://www.mygroupauctions.com) Over half the items usually get entered during the final day before the auction, or the morning of the auction. Let me know in advance if possible if you want live blackworms (see above).

Just heard from Joshua at Batfish Aquatics -- He's donating a ZEBRA PLECO for our Auction this Sunday Nov 15. If you're coming to the auction and want to pre-order anything else from him (save on shipping) check his webste batfishaquatics.com. He's got a nice selection of unusual fish & inverts.

Very cool on the zebra pleco donation.

I won't be able to attend the auction, but I am entering some shrimp lots that Dave Sombach will be bringing down for me.

Nice to meet Gerald and others today at the auction. All my fish made it back safely so a winning day.

Great meeting you at last too Lane - and hanging out with David Sombach and the Braggs again. We had around 540 items sold in a little over 5 hrs. I got Turquoise rainbowfish, Keyhole cichlids, Rotala, and some mis-ID'd cichlids that I now think may be Pelvicachromis silviae after some google searching (the bag was labelled "cutteri" - not even close). There were a zillion Angelfish and other cichlids, and only one bag of Bettas that I saw (B. albimarginata). Some cool catfish, tank-raised tetras & barbs, celestial danios ...
