No doubt the full results will appear in due course but a brief description
might be useful to the group. -
Best in show - C.magnificus Hoetmer KFN
The auction prices were very good. Top price of £30 for A.joergenscheeli GBG
93/21 breeders group.
Not much interested in what a sp is worth in an auction. They are all
priceless when they become rare.
Nothobranchius - We had sp from the Mozambique trip by Trevor Wood, Pete
Riley et al. Many hardships on this trip including having to live in the
middle of nowhere on caught Clarias & noodles to survive. Including one
member returning early to claim the glory in finding new fish looking like
N.furzeri which may turn out to be a new sp.leaving Trevor, Pete et al in
the wilds of Mozambique to fend for themselves.
In the AKA you may find Notho's labelled Moz 99/.... LOOK AFTER THEM.
A certain German collector is reportedly organising a trip to the north of
Mozambique but from what I have heard will not get very far without
transport which is almost impossibe to find.
Fp.gardneri is still alive over here & can make £7 (about $20?).
Diapteron are making a come back with prices getting back to normal after a
glut of sp. in auctions.
Aphyosemion - A.herzogi bochtleri made £29. These were a beautiful
pair.A.christyi HZ 85/8, A.amoenum Son Mayo EMS 90/8, A.caudofasciatum
RPC91/11, A.riggenbachi C89/18, A.exiguum GKCAR 90/8, A.sp. OYO RPC 91/8,
A.lamberti BBA GAB 90/1 made up the old brigade.
Not as many Lampeyes as normal.
Very few North American fish which is no surprise as we perhaps do not
support the AKA as well as we should. I think this is a failing in our
association but it's hard enough to get our members to support our own
No doubt Richard Sexton will put the results on the International site.
The BKA is working on a website but as usual for us Brit's we sit back &
wait & see what happens.
