    Just received an e-mail from Ray, the tanks are going fast....only one (1) 8' tank available! We do have 6' tanks available but at this rate they will most likely go fairly fast.
    This years event is lining up to be the biggest show we have ever had. I even heard mention of some real stiff competition coming over from Houston.

    Not to mention Purdin Koi Farm will have some really nice Koi for sale at our show!

    Not that I am aware of Ryan, but Burt has a few leftovers at WGG.
