In 2017, the Show Standard Committee, chaired by Karl Trochu, Chairman, with committee members Greg Sage, Bobby Ellermann, and Roy Levine, Ph.D., created show standards for use in our show at our annual convention which was approved by the Board of Directors.  These standards are available, upon request, to local clubs who hold livebearer shows, or shows with livebearer classes, in the following:

Cultivated strains and wild species of Poecilia sphenopsPoecilia latipinna, and Poecilia velivera

Cultivated stains of Fancy Xiphophorus

The ALA uses the International Fancy Guppy Association's(IFGA) judging standards for our guppy classes. IFGA judging standards can be found at
