    Our biggest problem as a club is finding storage space for our display tanks. Gotta think it might be harder with the non folding types to find storage? Comments?

    The tubs we're using nest into each other. There's a storage container company we are using that drops off the container of stuff for the show, picks it up after, and stores it for the year.

    I took about a million video clips today - mostly Koi Acres sales tanks and the goldfish from Southwest and some in-bag shots. And just two tanks of the exhibitor koi I think since most were still floating in the bags or not there yet when I had to time to poke around. I will not subject you to all the almost identical clips of my fish over and over.

    I don't think I can directly embed them here, but they will all be going up in my Vimeo account so you can take a peek at your leisure: Cheeky Lemur's videos on Vimeo

    Tank by tank photos of all the fish and how they did (all of these will be click to see big). The judges also did a great job of talking about these fish at the owner's requests this morning during the walkthrough, so I'll record as much as I remember about their comments.

    Tank 1: Dick Hadley
    Fish 1 - Size 3
    Best in Variety: Hikari-Moyo
    IKONA Friendship Award

    Fish 2 - Size 4 - Showa


    Tank 2:
    Ken and Bonnie Ellis
    Fish 3 - Size 6
    1st Place Best in Size 6
    MPKS Friendship Award
    Judge's Walkthrough Comments, both fish have good size and health, would improve in shape on slightly reduced feeding. Uniformity of the hi is really hard to determine in this fish, because of variations in the appearance of the gin rin.

    Fish 4 - Size 5

    The third fish from this tank was a nice large tancho, was unfortunately injured in transit but is expected to make a full recovery.

    Tank 3: Carol Ackermann
    Fish 13
    Best in Variety - Gin Rin B (non-gosanke)
    Judges: Likely female. Would probably fare better in many shows entered as a chagoi instead of gin rin, because of a "loose change" appearance.

    Fish 14- Size 3

    More tomorrow. (I can skip to just the award fish if you want, or make it through all 113.)

    If anyone is interested in my notes from the sessions, I can put those up too - I've got some from the aquatic vet's talk and Ray Jordans' talk on selecting young fish, and some from Peter Ponzio's goldfish talk.

    GC and RGC video



    Judge's comments at walkthrough:

    Both fish are very impressive. In excellent condition. The showa would normally be ranked more highly due to the difficulty of finishing both hi and sumi at once. On the day, however, the shiro was displaying better, more even conformation. The showa may be a bit eggier, and displayed a bit of unevenness left to right. And unusual event for all three judges to have voted for a shiro for GC.


    More shiros from Sue and Dick Emerick



    The larger shiro took Mature Champion, the smaller Best in Variety, and the kujaku Grand Champion B

    I, for one, very much appreciate the work you've put in already -- and would love to see you post the rest of the entries, too.

    PS -- I'm curious: Who presented the IKONA Friendship Award at your show?
