NFC: PVAS Auction
I've just returned from the Potomac Valley Aquarium Societies major
auction, and figured I'd give a quick synopsis. As usual, a great show
-- lots of different fishes, mostly freshwater tropicals. A bit of
equipment made its way into the show, but sadly, much of that was a
little disappointing. For the most part, it was heaters, air pumps,
lots and lots of power filters, and the like. There were a few UV
Sterilizers and more interesting filters and such, but they were
snatched up very quickly at the auction. :) The big showout was the
plants. Not an incredibly huge selection, but more NIttelia and Java
Moss than you could shake a stick at. Someone has been growing Anubias
like its dandelion. Lots and lots of this went up for bids. Killies
were also a big showout.
A few people even had native fish on sale, Damnbusia, Pygmy Sunnies.
NANFA made a bit of a show, too, with someone passing out a few
membership applications. As planned, I talked a little about the NFC
and gave a few people a point to start off from. One of the big
highlights, though, was getting to meet a few people from the DC area
interested in Natives. Unfortunately, I missed two of the people who
had hoped to show out, but did get a chance to meet Pierre Gagne and
Joshua L. Wiegert
