            Bill thanks for getting 62 and posting it.
            it was a toss up between that one and my Luke Fish.
            the hi on the head worried me a little and I was trying to pick good like I know what I am doing
            then you snatched it up on reserve....well I don't have room for three any way!

            your black faced gal was on my pick list but gone long before my turn, so I will be watching her too.

            and your 2nd pick is a lttle ragged looking it will be interesting to see how it looks when you get it, there have been so many that I didn't think much of but when they got posted on arrival my mind was changed

              Thanks Meganne,

              we are leaving for Arlington this morning at 8:30 to go and pick them up..........finally!!
              I hope to have some nice pictures to share this evening along with the measurements. Q-tank is at 63 (I just put the heater in last night) and will try and keep it around 68.
              On 62 I just had to see if the tail tube was as thick as it looked..................................plus it in my opinion was totally overlooked. # 124 (Brina's Koi) I found out a few had there eye on to include a ZNA person out in Calf. who thought no one who pick it and was going to slip in a buy it after the picks were made. Now I think that person was looking way down the road, so I am too..................
              I have two choices that were made by others , and both being non Koi people.....................yet
              Let the fun begin!!!!!!!!!!!!

                    I'm always surprised by the sizes of our picks. I have been wrong on a lot of them. I thought #62 would of been the largest. It Will be a fun one to watch. The colors look on all of them. I think #93 looks cleaner since the pick picture. It may be the picture but the head looks whiter already.
