    6 years so it's up date time!
    she grew! a solid 28 inches. Nice!
    sumi never has come in nice, only ink and deep along the dorsal. and only shadows on the face.
    The clincher is it has become apparent as she has gotten large that her head/skull is curved. I noticed last summer something was wrong with the shape of her left eye and this year I can tell it is because her skull is warped. Shame because I would have put up with the poor pattern because her conformation was wonderful, notice that is all in past term.
    She went to a new home today, a fellow hobbiest that has always coveted her

    LukeFish was bowled and measured today
    a respectable 16 inches
    my hope is in a year or so the face will whiten a tad more and there will be that pretty drip of sumi running drown from the left eye, the sash of shiro across the shoulders is very clean and all in all not a complaint for the second to the last picks. I can't wait to see Jim's Fluffy


    pixs won't up load

    looking better when the picture is of it's good side!
    but can it get any more boring than this?
    (mind you it does have great luster to it's skin, this puppy does shine, all that white along the dorsal is reflections))

Guess you don't know Luke, glad it gave you a giggle


    so, how are your grow outs coming along Luke?

    6 month offical update photo.
    bowled today the lovely (?) LukeFish #149, pick 151b
    measures in at a full 10 inches.
    only a shadow of a black eye of sumi left on that one eye....think it will return?
    the heavey sumi on the back half of the fish is breaking up, perhaps there is a pattern....or just a mess?
