    Smile Looks like rain here in Southern Cali for the Gardena show.

    Sorry, but no pics yet. I'll try to have some up by tomorrow night. Got here late but from what I can see, looks like stiff competition!

    Those koi all look fat to me is that something they do for the show? Or does the camera really add 10 pounds

    Tamus: The idea is to maximize the size without having fat/egginess that misshapens the body. The longer, broader, rounder the better, if the strong body form is maintained. Gets harder to do in large fish.

    Thanks Mike. Koinut thanks for being our eyes for the show. I heard size 4 and 5 were really competitive. Here's a better pic of "RP" short for red pec. Congrats to Nancy and Frank again and all the other hobbyist who showed.
