    Looks like Don has some very nice early Christmas gift! Congrats Don. Yeah, the GR Chag is a bombster!!!!!! There's always room in any pond for a nice chag like that. And the kohaku looks amazing. Can't wait for more pixs....kinda scared to see what your third xmas present looks like.

    Glad y'all like the Chag.

    Brenda picked it as a replacement for the big one we lost last year; it decided to migrate upstream to breed -- but only made it to the flower bed.

    Marudo, female, 63 cm (24.8"), sansai; definitely not your standard Hiroshima (diamond) gin

    Last month at Eastern, right out of the bag from Japan:









    Yesterday at Eastern; at home:

    Just a bruise picked up enroute to Eastern. Chag's seem to be prone to them.

    Almost gone as we speak.

    Hello Lam . . .

    Nope, that's the other GR Chag Ken brought in from Marudo. Very nice fish.

    It's 2 cm longer than ours, is brown (while ours is green) and has standard 'government issue' Hiroshima (diamond) GR (unlike ours).

    Best wishes,

    PS: Not a very good pic of the Hoshikin.
