Jar Show

Feb 2019 – We have put the Jar Show on hold until further notice due to lack of involvement and no volunteer chairing the jar shaw.

Details of rules and how it works.

The jar show competition is a great way to display your faviourite fish and show club members what nice fish you have. Points are awarded for all fish/plants etc. displayed. First, second and third place awards are given out for each category along with the best fish in competition.

  5. Add some gravel, cover the back of the tank with a backing of your choice.
  6. See the jar show chairperson and she/he will direct you where to display your entry.
