    I still have mine.

    I was going to do a update in another month or so when things warm up. I know there's a few people that want to see how #60 is progressing. It's stayed small (in my eyes) but the sumi is starting to come up.

      shiro #47 died shortly after the competition was completed. won most growth.

      shiros #30 and 67 both were males and were rehomed this past july.

      it was fun watching them for the year though.

      hopefully we'll get another growout going this year.

        I think it is going to be tategoi for some time to come!
        AND A BEAUTIFUL PATTERN!

          well imagine that

          she(could be) has some sumi still hidding in her face, if it ever gets here it will balance her out.
          I have always liked the sash of shiro across the shoulders.
          she has a nice frame

            will someone pick a date and we can put them all on the same thread?
            I am really interested in what the others' sumi is doing and it would be great to have them all together

                  Assuming that Global Warming stops the cool weather in its tracks someday I'm planning on snapping some pix. Growth slowed a lot on 51 last year but still looking pretty much the same pattern-wise as the last pix. I doubt the face pattern will pull back any until the water warms a good bit more than it is now. Maybe we should shoot for June to give us all time to get warmed up and running.

                    I still have all of mine. Two are still ugly and yellow, but the winning fish is gorgeous. Not much growth though.

                      we still have ours also, I think # 136. This is last fall and it was 19"/48 cm.

                        Gee Bob, ours are about as close to twins as they could get. The face on 51 is a touch heavier, but that's pretty much the only diff. Looks like living in the "great indoors" is treating her sumi just fine

                          I still have all 5 of mine. Most are in the 18-20" range. Some have brilliant white but my first pick still has a lot of yellow. She is definitely female so I'm waiting it out.

                          I'll be moving them in the next month so I'll take pics then.

                            Yep, sounds like it for sure... The whites are very nice on this group... would love to get to Omosako someday and see his 2 and older tategoi and adults.... Was hoping for this year, but it looks like a unlikely possibility at this time.

                            Ours is a little piggy, but I wondered about the growth rate ie the length...Shape is plenty full. Sounds like many other growouts are in that same range ....well, maybe not Bill's.... Still being patient with the growth of this one for a bit longer, although it is among the smaller ones in the pond..

                              Hey Bob - how about some updates on your pond? How are things working? Some new pics?
