      that is a nice looking showa. let's see where and how the sumi comes up in your pond.

      4Texas, you should look into joining the ZNA club in houston. several members are on this board.

        Tom right? I think my showas were on the same flight as yours. When I went to pick up my showas...the SW people kept asking me if I wanted Tom Tran's box I'm in the Port Arthur area, about 1.5 hrs from houston.

            membership comes with the monthly ZNA magazine. great pics of koi show winners around the world and contacts with some really nice koi people.

            and if you like gosanke, the club has its perks....

              David, you sure? Next meeting in September, at my place. Come and see the hole in the ground that I have with a few fish.

              I like that Showa you choose.




              Duc, you coming down?

                david, i'd recommend attending the meeting (bring some food and no one will notice that you are not a member yet).

                if i come down, i'm bringing my koi catching equipment with me and i'm gonna leave with a certain kohaku....

                      Check the club website when the date is set but for now it's tentative for 3rd wk of Sept. depending upon when I'm done cleaning the house & yard.

                      Ralph will go, go with him.

                      Yep, Duc should be known as Showaman but I think he's changing his mind after seeing that Dainichi kohaku I got recently.

                            LOL!!! I'm hoping she'll be 20" by the end of the year. If it wasn't so damn HOT they'll all be on the Izeki paste now, but I'll have to wait until the water cools down in about a month. Right now it's 85'f and I'm cutting the amount I usually feed down to 50%.

                            Picture? You'll have to see it in person david.
