    My Tancho Showa growout is gone

    And I now have another Shiro.

    When she arrived:


    May 4th


    I don't have a pic from today but there is no Beni at all.

    tancho at tosai stage are very suseptable to beni loss. They don't deal with the stress of travel well in certain individuals. Great body shape and menware so your gonna have a
    VERY nice SU! Sorry for your loss, cause I know if you have your heart set on a tancho,
    that lil bit of beni is pretty important!

    I'm thrilled that all of the Beni is gone because she's going to be a really pretty Shiro. But you're right, Dick, I was looking forward to watching her grow as a Tancho.

    I guess that means I'll be forced to buy another fish. The next one won't be Tosai.

    Unfortunately when it comes to Tancho, a nisei is a lot better bet. Hope you find something you like....
