With larger goldfish, please plan on 1-2 per aquarium. 5. Measurement of goldfish: This will be determined by the total length of the body, from the tip of the nose to the start of the tail. 6. Goldfish Identification: Goldfish are identified by aquarium assignment at the time of fish entry. All goldfish will be measured at check-in and put into proper class and length by the goldfish committee. The owner of the fish is encouraged to consult with the goldfish committee on benching. The decision on final fish placement is ultimately at the discretion of the Goldfish Judge. 7. Fish will be housed in show tanks at the discretion of the Goldfish Show Chairman. If it is determined that the fish load in any one tank is too great, the Goldfish Show Chairman will arrange to have fish transferred to another aquarium. If you will require a tank size greater than 20 gallons, it may be possible to bring your own tank or make other special arrangements with the Goldfish Show Committee prior to the show. 8. For the health of your fish, it is encouraged that your fish be fasted for several days prior to transport to the show. 9. We encourage each exhibitor to show a minimum of three fish.
