Greetings from us at WAKO

Great news from WAKO!  We will have our annual Show and Auction once again this year. It’ll be held the first weekend in November; Nov. 5-6, 2022. We’ve had so many good comments about our hotel which we have used the past couple of years, so we have signed our contract again with Comfort Suites-Airport Milwaukee. Our featured guest speaker is all lined up; Greg Niedzielski. His presentation will be “ANNUAL KILLIFISH, THEIR CARE AND BREEDING” followed with ample time for a Question and Answer session for a complete experience. The Egg-laying Toothcarp Jamboree is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.

Scroll down to our ANNUAL SHOW button which has been activated and populated to answer your questions. You’ll also be able to Pre-register and see what has already been registered for our auction along with pictures of the species. The page will be constantly updated. We hope you’ll join us for a fun and informative weekend!
