    Very nice fish, Jimbo.

    But, hey, don't you think you ought to retire it -- and give some other fish a shot at the glory?

This showa is one I got 7 years ago and it's never grown very much but has done well in shows winning Best Baby Best in Size and this year Young Champ at So. Cal ZNA yet it's not never going to reach 16 in.

    that one is great!!!

    I think the best thing about both Stephen and Jimbo's fish is the fact that the intensity of the color isn't lost in the fog of the Gin. Sometimes you have to struggle to find the pattern hiding beneath the flash, but not here.
