Besides Killifish we are planning to include other aquatic related items such as plants, foods, equipment and non-killifish fish. The CKA will also have some items for auction including killifish and other native fish. The auction split will be 70% to the seller and 30% to the CKA. We need to limit the number of bags of the same item (species, location or color form) to 5 bags from any seller. Note : Fruit flies are not allowed in the Restaurant and must be kept outside (if you wish to sell them).
