Refunds will be given on the sole discretion of the NJAS Online Auction team on-site, and will only be done in the case of obviously sick or clearly misidentified fish NOTE: NJAS can make no guarantees in the case of fry/very young fish as it is often impossible to determine actual species at that size

  • If at any point you have questions or feedback, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at


  • Sellers must bring their sold lots to the Clark Public Library basement (303 Westfield Ave, Clark, NJ 07066) at 11:00am on Saturday May 6th 2023. You will be assigned seating/table space and must remain until all your sold items are picked up

  • Fish, plants, live food, invertebrates and driftwood are all acceptable items for auction. No other items are allowed (ie: tanks, filters, air pumps, lights etc)
  • You must post and sell lots via this auction website
  • IMPORTANT: You must indicate if the fish are fry, juveniles or adults in the item description, as well as the quantity up for auction in each lot.
  • We STRONGLY encourage sellers to post actual images of your lots (and/or their parents in the case of very small fry/juveniles) on the site. It’s very easy, especially with modern cell phones, to capture really good images. Images make lots far more attractive to potential bidders, and lots with picture(s) get far more interest than ones without images. You can even use images from the internet (the auction platform makes it easy for you to label the image as such), but again it is very much encouraged you take and use pictures of your actual fish/plants/broodstock up for auction
  • All lots brought in on May 6th must be labeled with the lot number and the buyer's name (this information will be listed on the detail-level "invoice" sent from this portal once the auction ends), as well as your name and contact email
