Re: Idea for the Next National Convention?
With my suggestion the AKA will get a $10.00 donation for each type I want
to bring back home. >>
There is another way, and some folks do it. Buy back your own fish in the
auction. If you really want to support the AKA and retain your prized fish,
that is one way to do it. I came close to doing that last year, but someone
had more money than I wanted to spend - I am too cheap!
Like I said in the other post when I suggested the 10.00 entry fee. Year
after year I watch rich collectors (they cannot be called breeders) spend
hundreds of bucks on fish they will never reproduce. ( I can watch the
bidding and tell you when the fish is doomed and its fry will never be seen
it has happened so much.) I can not afford to buy back the fish bidding
against them, so as long as you get your way I do not enter any fish and the
AKA misses my 10.00 entry fee and the chance of seeing many other entries.
If I invest a year or more with a fish I get attached to it and do not want
to part with it. I have a 3 year old Cynostictum Pair that are great but
they and other fish I have will not be shown at the national as long as the
AKA keeps up its high tax on shown fish.
The history of the AKA is great but it is history and the time has come
to try other ways to make money and at the same time please the membership.

breed your fish today because man's
breeding is killing the wild supply.
