    Hi David, nice showa. Did you confirm the sex of the fish yet? The beni looks good and hasnt really stretched much from growing, which is a good thing. You'll see more sumi come up later which will balance out the over all look of the fish. Shiroji on the head has gotten better, so I would expect it to be a clean milky white by winter time. Keep up the good work and keep us posted.

    Tony

    Hey david your koi is looking really good. Everything seems to be in place good body, good skin, beni looks so rich and shiroji is white. You also have very good growth. I don't know if mine are as good as yours. I want to bowl them up and take pics to post, but temp is way to high and I worry I would stress them out. I'm waiting for temp to drop a little and then bowl them. Great job koi looks like it still has good potential.

    That was a good idea and a nice choice. Both your showas look great!

    Just beautiful Dtran growth is really impressive, but hi looks a little light from the previous pictures or is it just the lighting and angles. Sumi looks like it's beginning to come out really good and the body seems to be putting out good mass I very impressed.

    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.
