    anyone know if its worth it to go as a small scale vendor? I'm on the verge of a RCS boom right now, and I'm thinking about selling off some of my newbier plants.

    It depends on weather for me. un, I think it's a 50/50 club split or something. Last few times I've gone prices have been bid up. Kensfish is usually there & he'll bring whatever you preorder, save on shipping!

    Is this worth going as a non-vendor new hobbyist just looking for stocking (I don't have big tanks - just a 14g and possibly a 10g on the way and can't find what I want in my LFS)? Would appreciate details / experience of members familiar with this. It's about an hour drive for me. Thanks

    It is a good size auction and would be worth it as a small vendor or a non-vendor. The vendor sales are a 50/50 split with the club. As a non-vendor you will find some good stuff for your setup and if you don't like the price you don't have to bid. You may even win some door prizes. If you need vendor forms you can get them on the PVAS website. http://pvas.net/ Hope to meet some of you there.

    UN...read the Auction Rules on the PVAS website. 3 bag limit per species per vendor. Shrimp and plants usually do pretty well at these auctions though.

    It's a fun time but it depends on what you want. If it's fairly easy to breed or propagate there may well be some. Lots of cichlids, livebearers, killies, plants, used equipment. I may bring some stuff to donate, white worms seem popular & I think Martha lost hers. If you want selection go early, if you expect bargains, stay to the end...& don't bid me up!

    if its anything like the bas auctions you can expect to make at least a dollar per rcs, you can also buy duckweed for just one dollar a bag!

    livebearers also tend to do pretty well for some reason
