So today and tomorrow are the Georgia Koi and Goldfish Show :) It was amazing. Lots and lots of fish. I was told by a friend that there would be feeder fish games but the games all had inflatable toy prizes instead.

So here are some pics:

These guys were all for sale.

Ashlee, that's amazing! They had so many nice goldfish/koi there. I wouldn't know what to do if I were there lol.

Your new babies are amazing! Don't be surprised if that black oranda goes missing, though :P

:Congrats: and thank you for sharing the awesome pics of your awesome day!

I almost forgot. The one bad thing I noticed was this.

Many people were walking up and going, "let's look at the fish. I have always wanted an aquarium." :( I hope most of the fish were too expensive for the casual purchaser. The pandas were the smallest and cheapest fish at 15 each. My oranda was reduced because I purchased 4 fish but he would have been 100.

very nice fish.. i am so jealous that you guys have shows. we have none here. although, we may be working towards changing that.. i hope so. it would be awesome to gain that experience here too.

thanks for sharing ashlee, you made really nice choices :)

Wow...that looks like an amazing day. I love your oranda, but those little pandas are dolls. I have found that if you ask to buy something and it isn't for sale they will either give it to you or sell it really cheap. I actually asked because I wanted to buy things, but then people just kept giving me stuff. At both shows I got food, tetra safe start, prime, Alpha conditioner, a huge brand new air pump, brine shrimp, and of course Bagheera. But they didn't have any goldies for sale at all.
