    That is not good. It is not easy to try out the light fixture when it does not come with light bulbs. You should have bid for my Hagen Glo T5 fixture 24". It is a great fixture. I bought it for over $100 and sold for $34. I could not believe it only sold for that much. But you need two bulbs to work. I did not know that it needs to work with two bulbs when I bought it. I want to save energy so I had to sell it so I can get a single bulb fixture.

    By the end there was a item up for auction for a filter. The seller described the item "kind of working?" and people still bought it.

    I am not complaining. I got a few good deals in return too. I got two heaters that sold for $45-$50 before tax in the pet stores for $9-$10 each.

    Thanks so much to everyone who organized and helped run the auction yesterday. I had a blast and really look forward to attending more in the future. There was some great deals and beautiful fish for sale, too bad I am not an angel person because holy cow there were TONS of them and large ones selling for peanuts. Early in the morning before the auction I had to drop a friend off at a school function and after the auction I had to run out the door to make it on time for work so I felt really guilty about not helping out but I will definitely do some more volunteering at the next one.

    Thanks again!

Thank you very much for making such an effort to make this such a wonderful experience for all of us.
    P.S. My duaghter cannot stop talking about the ADA Mini_L tank she won since she came home. :-) ...and thanks for the books Dave.:-)
    She deserves the price. If you are going to let her setup the ada mini_L, please sure you post a joural up

    Jacky, talk to the VAHS people on their forum. Or even go to VAHS.ca and email them there. If you bought 5 lights and 4 not working, they should know about it. Please don't take off the sticker as the seller member number is there so they can track who is the one selling them. Perhaps the members in VAHS.CA will be able to give you a hand there.

    Is there a way for us to get in contact with sellers? I bought the pair of duplicareus corys at the auction and want to add a few more. My two are quite small and I am hoping somebody local bred them and may have more they would be willing to sell.

    Auctions are normally " as is " so you pay your money and take your chances, having said that people should be a little more honest as to the working condition of things they want to get rid of. If it's not working either trash it or mark it for parts only, people that end up with junk will stop coming to our auctions if this continues.
