    I saw in Nishikigoi Monthly that the "Monster Momotaro" Kohaku made it out to the All Japan Show this year. Anyone(Brian) knows how it did? Best Male? Best in Size? Was kinda curious....

    Out of curiosity, I purchased one tosai in October 2002. It was about 35 cm at that time. True to his words, growth rate has been quite staggering so far. By February 2003, it already reached 47 cm. By now (November 2003), it is about 60 cm. To think that it is only 30 months old! This is certainly comparable to the growth rate of Momotaro's.

    But what intrigued me is, who is the breeder? Is there really a 'monster kohaku' breeder in Japan? Does anyone here know? Or is it only a marketing gimmick?
