    Not so good with your pond but she will be ok with my pond. I will pay shipping if you don't like it anymore.

    that is funny. i think i will keep her for a bit yet.

    what makes her attractive enough to be in your pond?

    best,

    I like almost everything about it, but the beni that covers the right eye. That's just my thing...

    Hello Duc . . .

    Lucky you!

    While the red over the eye might be a demerit to some, I think it would easily grow on me were she swimming in my pond.

    Curious to know: Did you show her last weekend?

    Best wishes,

    Is it just the pic or is the Beni weak behind the head? It look thick and even with Hoshi everywhere else. The Shiroji looks very bright. The Sashi looks like it's about 2 scales?? I can't see any Kiwa.

    I really like the pattern but the Beni over the eyes bothers me.

    It will be interesting to see how she turns out.

    sure the eye is a little thing

    BUT

    Cindy Crawford has the mole/freckle thingy that i do not care for but overall, she would be a keeper to me

    sashi is still tightning up. about 1/2 scale to 1 scale in a couple areas.

    kiwa is sharp, very clean. the beni is even throughout. sandy, i think it is the flash hitting the shoulder. i can't find any uneven beni on this girl.
