    Ryan, this contest is serious business man! it is too serious for a amateur like me...I'll sit on the sidelines and watch the game Sign me up for next yr...I should be ready after studying all these GO threads.
    Don't be suprise if Lam starts injecting his GO's with a lil something to bulk them up and it might not be cyanocobalamin this time .

    LOL! Thanks for having confidence in me Meg. Unfortunately I touch it and now "it" is a "he". My luck, just my luck! Still, even if "it" was a "she" there is no way I would win this event considering the stiff competition. Man, how much I would pay to see the Texans wear their losers tshirt!

    Hypothesis 1: Tosai grown in a hobbyist backyard pond can attain size of 20 or more inches by ake sansai.

    Already proved in Texas...

    Hypothesis 2: Tosai grown in a confined 1500 gal QT can attain size of 20 or more inches by ake sansai.

    This one I want to see. I believe you can do this.

    Hypothesis 3: Given the same genetics, koi grown in low TDS, neutral pH & low nitrate grow better than koi grown in high TDS, high pH and ponds with nitrate.

    I would think this is a given based upon the nitrate alone, but I look forward to your conclusions. Our water down here is pretty high in PH, but no nitrates.

    Hypothesis 4: Given the same genetics, koi fed a mixture of different high quality diet grow better than koi fed with a single high quality diet.

    How are you going to prove this one. Which of the group is going to feed just one food type?

    Hypothesis 5: Indoor artificial lighting is as good as natural sunlight in maintaining optimal koi color.

    I got nothing on this one. No interest in finding out...

    Hypothesis 6: Bigger is not always better and Texans can and will cry at the end of the GO contest

    Bigger is Better it's just the way of life. Most of us strive for the "Bigger" paycheck, the "Bigger" house, the "Bigger" koi. Don't let your own inadequacies keep you from the truth. Texans don't cry over a koi. It would have to be his horse or his dog to get that kind of reaction. Ultimately a Texan will stand on top the podium as the victor. It's what we do, get used to it.

    Nothing but love for you my brother, nothing but love...
    Whoever said you can't buy happiness didn't know about Koi
