""Also mentioning the size of the fish (even if the auctioneer isnt interested in the species) would have helped. For those who missed out on my juvi L numbers, they weren't tiddlers, they were 5cm and they breed at 8cm. The size was marked on the bag label but for the most part was ignored""
same here, i went and measured each fish down to the mm and put it on every single label thinking "i wish everyone else did this so that the auctioneer dosnt have to guess". haha i guess there are a few people that do it!
and holy moley the noise from the crowd was terrible i'm not sure about everyone else but from up the front I was having issues hearing the auctioneers (sorry Ian), may have been all the kids near me though (someone has to take them into another room and put movies on all night, charge $5/kid)
the semi-reasonable price of the tea was a nice change AND a free bickie! needless to say I bought 6 cups of tea xD
venue was fantastic! much much much better than the clayfield hall
Oh and another grumpy thing, was people parking wherever they felt like, i was almost boxed in and only managed to get out after about 10min of back and forth and the help from a VERY nice stranger who was directing me from outside, good sir if your reading this I owe you!
