    You're right. The video adds another dimension to it, and it does look better.

    The SFF December auction is interesting in several respects. Wonderful koi, of course. I think this is the first time I have seen more Shiro Bekko (2) up for auction than Showa (just one)... among the nisai and older. And, I find it fascinating that dealers are going to be bidding on 12cm tosai. (For the metric challenged, that is not even a full 5 inches. And, yes there are some 18cm tosai listed.) Are there really enough hobbyists willing to gamble on tosai to authorize dealers to bid on the more than 100 little guys posted? What's the chance that more than 50% turn out male? For SFF auctions, a bid of 100,000 yen would be so low as to be silly to make; but for such ordinary sized tosai, it would be a high price by the standards of most kichi. So, I'm wondering how many of these little guys go for a million yen. It's all about selling dreams.
