Submitting Fish & Items
If you wish to auction any fish or other items then please contact Lisa Davies (Ghipsi) via the forum, who will allocate you will lot numbers.
Please get your full auction list over to Lisa by 14 October (two weeks before the auction) the list should include: number of lots, number of fish per bag and reserve bid price.

Auction Guidelines
- Fish should be brought in poly boxes, with heat packs where necessary.
- All bids will only be accepted in person, bidding is not possible before the auction.
- If you plan to purchase fish, please ensure you bring a sufficient means of transporting the fish to their new home.
- All bags should be labeled with your allocate lot numbers
- Addtional lots will not be announced, so ensure you have only brought with you what you submitted
- Changes to your lots are allowed but please state it is a changed lot on the bag.

I would also like to ask that you post a photo of the fishes on the forums prior to the auction, this helps people to know what they are buying and also brings in bids you may have normally missed.

Example:

Number of Lots: 2
Fish per bag: 1
Reserve: £10
