    Thanks, that's what I was after. Three different looks. I should learn alot watching these three. I have never owned an SU before so I needed to come up with a selection game plan and it worked out pretty well for me.

    Nice choices. It will be interesting watching how they change since each fish is so different.

    When I picked up my koi from Bob's house last night, he was juggling two full grown bulldogs, a baby bulldog who wanted to get into everything and two different Koi shipments. Cool dogs (especially the little guy) and some nice Koi!
