the San Diego Guppy Association! It is free to enter your guppies (No limits,
enter as MANY as you can bring!!) and you might even win a prize!! No age
limit to be in the show, kids are welcome! You do not have to be a member of
either fish club to enter, so bring those guppies to the show! All you need are
your guppies, and a flat sided container to show them in (Fish bowls, flat
sided betta houses, etc.) You can bring in single males, 2 males together, or
single females. One fish per container (or two fish in the container if you
are showing a pair of matched males). No rocks, plants, backgrounds or
decorations in the guppy containers, just the guppies. The show is free and
open to the public on Saturday and Sunday, your guppies will get lots of
attention and "oohs and ahhss! and might even win a prize or two!!
