    Just a few random shots..

    It's going to be tough to decide who is going to the show in about two months from now.. My pond is 2.4m deep (just showing off the water quality/clarity)

    I see the Dainichi Showa in the first group of pics, pretty nice. I think you have a collection that anyone would die for....By the way what is your favorite fish in your collection?

    Hey Tony - The Dainichi kindai is pretty nice but she has 3 carp pox marks that's active and she is just not growing out of it. It's not that bad and I hope she grows out of it by next year. She (plus the other Dainichi kindai) has a very long way to go. The other one a massive 72cm (I think the one you like is around 60cm now) and will only be 3 in June according to the certificate. I thought the hi was going and I might end up with a shiro but it made an incredible comeback this season.

    My favorite...tough choice! I like my marudo kohaku that won our show last year but she is starting to show her age now. My new sakai sanke and showa is up there with her. In about a month I will bowl all the ones I want to take to show and I'll post some pics for discussion. I've just been told that I can only have two vats at the show and not 3 like I asked. It's going to be tough deciding!

    other kindai is on pic 6 of 3rd set. Same story as the one ppp recently posted. I'm starting to think same batch! The sumi that's come up on the body is the glossy black type.

    Well, Erns, I am disappointed. I've gone through the shots repeatedly. Yeah, there are several very nice koi. But, I want to see that Ochiba head-on! ... Got a glamour shot of her on file?
