What’s happening at our meeting on 5 August 2016
ANGFA Vic Mega Auction
ANGFA Fish Auctions are always a highlight for anyone with a strong interest in aquarium fishes native to Australia and New Guinea.
At the August meeting of ANGFA Victoria, we will be holding a mega-auction to celebrate our wonderful array of indigenous aquarium subjects. There is sure to be a great representation of aquarium fishes native to Australia and New Guinea, plus perhaps even some other items of interest such as various Australian native shrimps and aquatic plants!
The auction fulfills several important roles: firstly, as a fund raiser for ANGFA’s publications and conservation funding activities; secondly, to help disperse rare species to keen native fish enthusiasts: this is your best opportunity to source a wide array of Australian/NG fishes and other aquatic species that are rarely (or virtually never) available in the mainstream aquarium hobby.
The wide array of species presented is thanks to a network of ANGFA supporters and members from many parts of Australia.
The auction will be held Friday night August 5 at the ANGFA Victoria meeting, so start planning to have some tanks ready for your beautiful new fishes!
