After Check-in


Once the koi have been checked in, no handling or examination will be allowed by anyone except authorized show personnel.


Once the koi have been placed in their appropriate tank, they may only be withdrawn from the show with the authorization of the Show Chair.

Water Quality

All efforts have been made to ensure on-going safe water quality for the health of the koi. Therefore, no one except the Water Quality coordinator will be allowed to monitor or alter water quality.


You must bring your own appropriately sized koi net to the show, with your name on it for identification purposes. By using your net for your koi only, we can help diminish the chance of cross contamination between tanks. If you arrive at the show without a net, you will be required to purchase one at the Sales Table or from a local dealer prior judging on Saturday. If pans are needed, they will be furnished by the show committee.

Check-Out Process

The process of checking out koi for the trip home will begin at 1 p.m. on Sunday, and not before. If koi are removed from the show earlier, these koi will be disqualified and any awards they have won will be canceled. Our show koi are on display until 1 p.m. Sunday afternoon. Keep this in mind as you make your travel plans.

Koi will be bagged by each owner or designee or the appropriate show personnel. Oxygen will be provided by show personnel and the nozzle disinfected prior to each tank. All entrants are responsible for their own bags, rubber bands, and totes/boxes.
