The SOUTH WEST MISSOURI WATER GARDEN ASSOCIATION (SWMWGA) is a non-profit organization consisting of a group of people held together by the common interest in the hobby of koi and goldfish keeping.
Our association includes members, both commercial and individuals, from the South West Missouri surrounding areas. Our member's level of dedication to the hobby varies from those who keep koi and goldfish for commercial reasons, to those members who keep them in aquariums, backyard ponds, or lavish water gardens.
Our members also share a love for beautiful plants, both annual and perennial. Their ponds are adorned with both tropical and local plants, as well as a variety of water plants.
Our filtration systems vary as widely as the ideas we can come up with. They range from small mechanical and under gravel filters to very sophisticated bio-filters.
If you are interested in contacting a member of the association, please leave contact information and we will get in touch with you.
For more information about our association and the joy of keeping goldfish and koi, watch for follow-up information on our website.
