I just want to let you all know that you should sign up for membership with the AGA if you can! Yearly dues are only $15, and that money goes toward their online publication (which you will receive as a member), promoting all breeds of goldfish here in the US, and putting on goldfish shows across the US. This is my first year as a member, so I don't know much about it myself yet. But I do know that it helps to promote the hobby of goldfish keeping in the US, and of course that's something we all support!
The AGA is providing their first new newsletter complimentary! Here's a link to the PDF. February Newsletter
All you need to do is download this form, fill it out, and send it and your $15 check to the address at the bottom of the form.

my understanding, the AGA has been at a bit of a stand-still up until
now, and they are now really trying to revive it and make it something
great again. First, by starting up the online newsletters again, and
also by revamping their website. The newsletters are packed with tons
of beautiful goldfish photos, articles about breeding and keeping
goldfish, and goldfish keeping tips.
