Potomac Valley Aquarium Society is having its spring auction on Saturday, April first. There are always lots of great supplies, fish, and plants. Here's a link:

No it's not an April's Fool joke! Laughing This was a great event.

This is my second PVAS Auction, and this time was even better than the first. I usually head straight for the tag sale area. In tag sale, you pay the price shown, no haggling, no bidding. It's a good way to ease into the auction. From the tag sale area, you can hear everything that's going on.

As well as some used hardgoods, there were bags of stem plants, other plants, aquarium wood, and books in the tag sale. I bought a big bag of Ludwigia (Ludwigia repens x arcuata, a naturally occurring hybrid of L. repens) and a used copy of Jorg Vierke's Aquarium Book, published in 1982. I love the old aquarium books!

This auction is a good place to make connections, too. I met up with a *certain individual* who has subsequently sold me a great group of celestial pearl danios (Celestichthys margaritatus). Maybe more of us from here can go up next year!
