There will be some at the upcoming GCAS auction though...

It all depends on the people bringing items. the local breeder was out of town for a race, so i guess no one else had any. i dont think thats a negative thing, that's just how it works. I eneded up taking nothing home, but i was still fairly impressed with the turnout of items and prices.

GCAS didnt have any shrimp but cherries last year. i do hope to see some CRS there. ill be bidding on them too .

What do the CRS typically go for at the GCAS auction?

I've been going to the GCAS auctions since October 2005 and I've never seen CRS on the block. I'll have some bags of 10 registered and expect to get somewhat lowballed on the price since most people don't really even know what they are, but am willing to take the risk in order to generate some future interest to hobbiests. Analogously, I've seen bags of rarer plants go cheap, while contrarily I've also put up a bag of 8 Red Swordtails that sold for over $20. It's hit and miss. It really depends on the impulse of the buyers and timing of the item being auctioned. Bidders can be gunshy the first couple of bags. Jump then! The end of the auction has many deals to be had as well. I've seen people come from far away to restock a fishstore that took a bad hit and bid up every bag it seemed like. You just can't predict an auction of this size that draws buyers from 3 states away.

Show up, test the waters, and good luck bidding!

Well put. This is how most auctions- fish or otherwise- work.

As it stands, I dunno if I'll be going to the GCAS. I'd like to get rid of a lot of stuff, but the drive may not deem itself worthwhile. Plus my posse backed out.
