Growth Contest Time! – Tomorrow 6/7/2015

Growth Contest Time! Every couple months we provide our Members with a fun game called a Growth Contest, where we bring in and sell some fry/juveniles basically at cost. Every time we hold a Growth Contest, we rotate the type of cichlid it is. Members who win in the Growth Contest get “Auction Dollars” Which get rewarded at the time of our big Auctions. Become a Member! Membership is only $15 for a Year! Memberships help fund these little events.

Tomorrow will be a Central American, and it will be Thorichthys maculipinnis “Red Aureum” A.K.A. “Elioti” A rarer Thoricthys in the hobby. With good water quality and high quality, varied food this species is capable of attaining 7 inches in length. This fish is not only beautiful, but is only Mildly Aggressive for a Central American!
This Growth Contest will cost about $2.00 each plus freight divided up into each fish. We usually bring in about 100 fry/juveniles. If 10 people raise their hand for entering the contest, each member will buy a bag of 10 fish. Or if 20 people raise their hand to enter, each person will buy a bag of 5 fish.

(The last Growth Contest was the Victorian Zebra Obliquidens, and they are Due back at the Meeting!)

Growth Contest Rules:
1. Fish are NOT to be traded in, or resold to pet stores or online at anytime before the contest is due back!
2. This is a Members Only event.
3. It only takes 1 fish to win out of the bag lot you get. Who Ever Raises the BIGGEST ONE WINS!

Happy Growing!
