    Check the club website when the date is set but for now it's tentative for 3rd wk of Sept. depending upon when I'm done cleaning the house & yard.

    Ralph will go, go with him.

    Yep, Duc should be known as Showaman but I think he's changing his mind after seeing that Dainichi kohaku I got recently.

    LOL!!! I'm hoping she'll be 20" by the end of the year. If it wasn't so damn HOT they'll all be on the Izeki paste now, but I'll have to wait until the water cools down in about a month. Right now it's 85'f and I'm cutting the amount I usually feed down to 50%.

    Picture? You'll have to see it in person david.

    Just beautiful Dtran growth is really impressive, but hi looks a little light from the previous pictures or is it just the lighting and angles. Sumi looks like it's beginning to come out really good and the body seems to be putting out good mass I very impressed.
