    Following your logic, drug companies that do trials on rats should do trials on humans to make valid conclusions on tests, right? After all, rats are not people. And people are not rats. That at...

    Sorry Mike, I'm trying to stay on point with the subject matter. It is about skin quality and my contention that it is a proxy for koi health. Not just general health, but optimal health. Great skin...
