    You do have fun with metallics. The first one is eye-catching at this size. I personally do not care much for metallic black because it is hard to see in a pond. In a show tank, metallic black is impressive when the sumi is strong. So often metallic black becomes gray. My favorite of your keepers is the one in the third photo. The high sheen and strong color draw attention. Hopefully it can keep those traits as it grows.

    What did you spawn for this year?
