Rare Fish Auction
For our October meeting, we are working with top breeders around the country to bring in rare and unusual livebearers.
We will have a curated auction. For each fish to be auctioned, we will have a descriptive slide with a picture and care instructions.
In order to bid on fish, you need to be a member of the Chicago Livebearer Society. Join our Club online! It's only $10 per year.

Rare Fish Auction List (subject to change)
We will start populating a list of fish here about two weeks prior the auction.
Donations for our Table
The primary method we use to raise funds is through sales at the GCCA Swap Meet. We need your donations of fish and other goods to help raise money for the club. Please bring your items to the swap and the earlier the better!
The Chicago Livebearer Society it pleased to announce a donation of $1000 to the North American Goodeid Working Group (NAGWG).
The donation was funded by a recent Rare Livebearer Auction which was held in January 2018. The club sold over 120 bags of rare and hard to find livebearers and a portion of the proceeds helped offset the dontation.
