    Hi Tony,

    If a fish is only 7" at this time of the year, would that be a pretty strong indicator that there isn't much growth potential? I realize stocking levels in most dealer tanks borders obscene, but 7" seems so small for mid summer... Would this be a case where the fish was bought primarily for showing young and then bouncing fairly quickly?

    Really sharp colors, and that white is crazy nice! The beni looks hard to me but it may be the picture.

    the only suprise would be that the koi would not get some sort of a prize, at a show.

    That's what I told my friend yesterday when I ran into him at the shop....Nothing is ever a sure win...then again it would be interesting to see how he takes care of it.

    Sashi and kiwa are so sharp that it almost looks like a doitsugoi. Or is it? Very pretty fish.
