    TAS Auction News

    The Angelfish Society is very excited to announce our first online auction! There will be additional postings and news about this event as we work out the details. For now, here is a list of our current plans:

    • Tentatively scheduled late September or early October, but most likely early October
    • Auction will be held in our forum
    • Auction will be open to the public. Anyone can bid!
    • We have plans to old future auctions for members only
    • Starting bid will be the estimated cost of shipping. If shipping is higher than estimated TAS will cover the difference. So, the winning bid will be the total price!
    • Payments will be made through PayPal
    • Actual shipping is expected to occur mid to late October

    I have been able to confirm 11 donators who have indicated the offerings will include Sunsets, Platinums with the possibility of snakeskin, F1 Altums and Bulgarian Green angels. With this variety of angels from top breeders this is sure to be a successful event!!


    TAS is seeking angelfish donations to offer in our first online auction. We are only asking for the angels to be donated as the donator would be reimbursed for shipping costs.

    If you would be interested in making a donation for our auction, please PM me or reply to this post to get your name on the donation list.

    The Angelfish Society is seeking donations for our auction. Please consider donating a few angelfish. We are accepting donations from both members and non-members.

    If you aren't comfortable with shipping, that is fine! We can indicate your fish are available for pick up only.

    If you live outside the USA, we can indicate that your fish are available for pick up only or can be shipped to your country.

    If you are an international shipper, we can indicate this on the auction as well.

    Any questions? Please contact me.

    I have been able to confirm the following:
    • F1 Altum, tank bred
    • Sunset
    • Platinum with the possibility of snakeskin
    • Bulgarian Green
    • And many other top breeders who haven't yet decided on their donation

    Together we can make this a great event!!
