Availability of service

This site is hosted on an old server in the corner of my fish room. There's a leaky 125 gallon tank over the router, and sometimes the archer fish splash water on the wifi access point. Under no circumstances should you expect this site to be available or functional in any way. If it goes down unexpectedly for any reason, you were warned and this site cannot be held liable.

If you choose to participate in an auction as indicated by confirming your pickup location, you are entering into a binding agreement with the person or club running the auction and understand that if you win or sell any lot(s), you will meet at your selected pickup location and exchange any lots you bought or sold. You also agree to any auction-specific rules described by the person running the auction.

If you create an auction on this site, we may or may not provide any sort of assistance with your auction, including but not limited to answering questions, adding additional features, or assisting directly with lot exchanges. The extent of any assistance provided or not provided is at this site's sole discretion.


Site admins will not remove or alter any bids. The creator of an auction has the ability to remove bid(s) on any lot(s) in their auction, and may do so at their own discretion.

When you place a bid, you are entering into a binding agreement with the seller of the lot you are bidding on. If your bid is the highest bid, or in the case of a tie, if your bid is placed first, you are the winner once the lot sells. If the lot is part of an auction, the winner is obligated to meet at your selected pickup location and provide payment to the person or club running the auction. If the lot is not part of an auction, the winner is obligated to coordinate payment in full with the seller.

Under no circumstances are you permitted to bid on a lot that is illegal in your state/location.


You must own the rights to any pictures you post of lot(s), or have permission from the original author to post their picture as representative of your lot(s). Any representative pictures should be representative of the actual lot being sold.

The description and other information of any lots you enter should be honest and accurate.

You must be aware of, and abide by, any state and federal laws regarding buying or selling species in your state/location.

If you submit lot(s) as part of an auction, you must agree to any terms and conditions specific to that auction, including the authority of the person running the auction to remove your lot(s) for any reason, or for no reason.

Once your lot(s) are sold, if they are part of the auction, you must deliver your lot(s)

"Spam" or repeated posting of items is discouraged, and posting more than 3 lots of the same species/product at any given time may result in a temporary ban from the site, and/or the removal of those lots.

Any lots you have submitted may be removed for any reason, or no reason, at the sole discretion of this site's administration.
