    That was a good idea and a nice choice. Both your showas look great!

    Hey david your koi is looking really good. Everything seems to be in place good body, good skin, beni looks so rich and shiroji is white. You also have very good growth. I don't know if mine are as good as yours. I want to bowl them up and take pics to post, but temp is way to high and I worry I would stress them out. I'm waiting for temp to drop a little and then bowl them. Great job koi looks like it still has good potential.

    Hi David, nice showa. Did you confirm the sex of the fish yet? The beni looks good and hasnt really stretched much from growing, which is a good thing. You'll see more sumi come up later which will balance out the over all look of the fish. Shiroji on the head has gotten better, so I would expect it to be a clean milky white by winter time. Keep up the good work and keep us posted.
