2016 MASI SHOW RULES
ENTRIES:
Open to all.
Entry fees: $3 first entry, $1 each additional entry. Or all you can enter for $10
FREE ticket into the fish sale with first entry.
FREE ENTRY: Aquascaping Each tank will automatically be judged for Aquascaping.
Tanks with multiple entries:
IT IS UP TO THE ENTRANT TO CLEARLY STATE ON THE ENTRY FORM WHICH FISH SHOULD BE JUDGED. Multiple entries in one tank from different classes are ok as long as they are compatible.
As a matter of ethics, all entries must be the property of the entrant for at least 60 days before show. No deformed, diseased, artificially colored (painted, dyed, or injected) or illegal fish may be shown. Illegal fish are listed at the end of these rules.
The judges and show chairmen reserve the right to pull any entry they deem injured, ill or abused by tankmates.
DISPLAY:
All fish are to be entered in flat-sided bowls or tanks a minimum of ½ gallon or larger up to 30 gallons. IF an entrant wants to set up a tank larger than 30 gallons, he must get prior approval from the fish show chairman, AND provide his own stand. Bare tank entries are allowed in all fish classes, though this is not preferred. Consider using gravel or sand, for the comfort of the fish. We encourage the use of a background for the comfort of the fish and the effectiveness of the display. Consider overing the sides and back of tank with opaque material (black paint, black contact paper, etc.) All entries must be neatly covered to prevent fish jumping out.
There are a limited number of flat sided drum bowls or flat sided “kritter keepers” that can be borrowed if an entrant does not have a bowl. Please contact the show committee early to reserve one.
Lighted entries are encouraged. After the banquet we will have the traditional “tank glow” where the room lights are turned off and just the tanks are lit.
Live plants are encouraged. Filtration and aeration are optional, but strongly recommended for the health of the entry. Air and electrical outlets will be supplied. Guppies, Killies, and Betta splendens may all be entered singly or in pairs in covered bare bowls or tanks of ½ to 1 gallon in size. Naturalistic artificial decorations are allowed in all entries, and a flowerpot or PVC pipe may be used if needed for the comfort of the fish. For the Photography class– single picture entries must be printed for viewing.
JUDGING
All entries will be sight judged based on appropriate standards for the fish being judged.
Decision of Judges and/or Show Chairmen is final. Show Chairmen may disqualify any entry for any reason at any time.
