Fall Koi Show
We are excited to announce that the annual Fall Koi & Fancy Goldfish Show will take place on October 24th & 25th (2019)! This is a perfect opportunity to show your prized fish and maybe take home a trophy! We will be flying in certified Koi Judges to judge our competition. Our breeders will be coming out to Water Garden Gems and selling directly to the public, giving you an extraordinary selection of fish to choose from (and maybe enter in the show)! We will be joined by Andrew Moo of Andrew’s Koi International (a premier Japanese Koi supplier) and Vance Schultze of Tank Hollow Fisheries (a premier LongFin Koi supplier)! This event will also mark the public debut of a fresh shipment of high-quality Fancy Goldfish–if you’re interested in joining our Fall Koi and Goldfish Show, please contact the Texas Koi and Fancy Goldfish Society!
We host and teach many Pond Seminars throughout the year in order to better educate our customers on all aspects of pond-keeping! If you’re interested in building a new pond or renovating an old one, our Pond Building Seminar is for you! This seminar focuses on the proper construction and design of a pond, including pump and filter choice! Already have a pond? Consider attending one of our specialty seminars (denoted in blue)! Specialty seminars center on a single topic designed to educate our attendees in the finer points of pond-care! Each year brings new seminars, so be sure to check out our schedule at the beginning of each year! Click here for more detailed information.

ANNUAL KOI AND FANCY GOLDFISH SHOW
Every October, we host one of the largest Koi Shows in Texas right here at Water Garden Gems! Put on by the Texas Koi and Fancy Goldfish Society, this is an excellent opportunity to participate in a unique aspect of Koi-keeping! Fish from all over the state (and some from out of state!) are brought to the property and entered into the Show, where their various attributes are judged by professionally-licensed Koi Judges–a wonderful opportunity to see some amazing fish! Koi not your thing? Try the Fancy Goldfish Show! Taking place the same weekend, the Fancy Goldfish Show is an opportunity to enter your Fancy Goldfish and see the incredible range of Goldfish varieties! The Show is open to the public and anyone may enter! If you’re interested in entering your fish, you may contact the TKFGS here.
