Do you have some guppies at home? Store bought, gift from a friend, even show quality stock? If you do, bring them on down to the First Guppy Show hosted by 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!!
To enter your guppies, bring them in their containers to room 101 of the Casa del Prado on Friday Nov 5th (9:00 am-9:00 pm is set up and registration of entries).
The following classes will be judged if there are at least 3 entries in a particular color class. Classes with less than 3 entries will be Classes will be lumped together into AOC (Any other color).





Half Black





Any Other Color (AOC)

1. Exhibitors will determine classification of entries. Assistance to determine class of entry will be available at time of entry. There will be people there to let you know what class your guppies can go in, so no worries if you aren't sure!

3. No gravel, tinted water, greens or other decorative items will be permitted.
4. SDGA and SDTFS assume no responsibility for any loss of fish.
5. Judging will be according to IFGA standards. All decisions of the judges will be final.
6. Fish cannot be removed from the bench prior to 2 PM Sunday. Fish may be removed and released to the exhibitor only by a SDGA Show Representative. We usually start taking down the tanks and show after 4PM on Sunday
7. Tanks and bowls must be supplied by the exhibitor. The standard small size plastic aquarium 9” long, 5 ¾” wide and 5 ¼” deep is preferred, but any other tank or bowl plastic or glass is acceptable. As long as the front is flat, it is AOK!!
