    But... I really do not care for the 'official' photo of her. This is one of those rare occasions where a koi looks better moving than posing:

    Doitsu really look naked in larger sizes, but this Kigoi especially so.

    Luyen: She was striking last year, but much better this year. You have done a very good job of improving her. Perhaps she will slow down the growth the coming year and put on more weight?

    Now, a few shots from around the show.... First, a blue one for Dick. (Nice to see such an Asagi raised in Florida heat and water.)

    Folks kept looking at the Goshiki, but her tankmates weren't exactly coleslaw!

    One of my favorites was this Aka Matsuba. This variety is usually rather blah... making me think of a lost opportunity. This one had me thinking that a good future is a possibility.

    And a few scenes:

    Brady attended, taking Koi Fixx video and he had a tank of nice Kohaku for sale. Here is Brady with Mickey The Windowman... Is there anywhere that koi stuff happens that Mickey doesn't show up? This guy puts on more koi miles than anyone I know. (And he has an incredible memory for details!)

    The raffle sales were doing well. And Luke Frisbee was chatting with everyone, here with Mat McCann. I'd show a photo of the koi Mat had for sale, but he was sold out!
