    Default Aquarium Mega Auction in Canberra 22 Feb

    The Canberra and District Aquarium Society (CDAS) holds two big auctions each year that are open to members and the public. (only members can submit lots but anyone can purchase a $5 bidders card and buy, buy, buy)

    The next one is on Saturday 22 Feb at the Harmonie German Club, 49 Jerrabomberra Avenue, Narrabundah ACT.

    The auction kicks off at 11.00am and goes until (about) 4pm or when everything is sold.

    There will be hundred of items, including member bred fish, plants and shrimp plus special lots bought by the club from our wonderful sponsors (like AoA and Aquagreen). Bargains are guaranteed.

    We'll also put on a few raffles and give-aways throughout the day.

    Stay up to date and get all the guff at our MegaAuction web page.

    We are looking forward to seeing lots of fellow fishkeepers from Canberra and the broader region (yes, even from the 'Gong!). Make a day (or weekend) of it. Canberra is/should be/ lovely in late February. And if it isn't, there's still heaps to do and fish to buy.

    Planning is in full swing now, there will be interstate people, local people and jealous people (the ones who cannot make it). Some great major raffle prizes and a huge assortment of fish, plants etc.

    One week to go and it is nicely building momentum. People are able to pre-register auction lots on the link above.

    We have a good response to the Auction so far - lots of interesting stuff already pre-registered, including Apistos, killis, African and American cichlids, cories, L-numbers, shrimp, big bags of community fish and plants. Looks like being a very full day - and the venue will be selling food (and the bar will be open).
