Big Plant & Fish Auction November 14th (A Monday!)

Join us on Monday (Note the special day and different week), November 14th for our annual Aquatic Plant and Fish Auction! This is our second-largest fundraiser of the year, and a great way to acquire new plants, fish or invertebrates. The stock is mostly brought in from members, but we also get some commercially-grown aquatic plants. There will be specimens suitable for beginners and advanced aquarists alike!

Just like the April auction, we will be holding it at the West Seattle Christian Church at 4400 42nd Ave SW. This is a great large space, easy to navigate to from I-5 and the West Seattle Bridge, and has a lot of close parking on the street and in two lots.

Bidding starts at 7, preview and setup at 6. Please read the auction guidelines for more information. Non-members are welcome! If you are a member, please pre-register your items. Also, if you have a large number of donations, contact auction chair Erik at

Bid early, bid often, support your club!

Thanks to our 2016 Auction Donors

A huge thanks to all the attendees and volunteers at our 2016 Big General Auction -- we sold a ridiculous number of items, and will be able to keep GSAS running quite healthily for the next year, including some speakers from across the country and even the ocean (hopefully no cancellations this time!)...

Please buy stuff from all the local stores and national companies that provided us with the huge variety of donations this year! We are really appreciative of their support.
