    It might be the final plan. I am going to have to look hard for a good one come March. Pickings were slim this year as anything good seemed to be gone early unless you had a larger budget.

    After looking back, I notice the heads a lot more. I focus on the rest of the body so much, sometimes that gets ignored.

    I think it would be more of a contender to keep if it didn't have the sumi...

    I forgot to mention a bigger issue with this one which has it on the re-home list, its going to lose a lot of beni. The photos cover the area with ripples, but it can be seen a bit in the first one....

    Last but not least is this guy. Technically I believe its still a Tancho. My thoughts when purchasing it was to expect the beni to retract or look smaller as it grew. Its grown from 5 to 10 inches...

    This Kohaku is getting a sumi spot as well, same breeder and same parent stock, so I fear its an inherited trait. This one however was purchased two years ago at 6 inches and is now 17.5 inches....

    This was a Kohaku and then it got a blaring sumi spot on its head. Its grown from 7 inches to 12.5 since it was purchased in March. That spot was its downfall and it will likely get re-homed as I do...

    This Kohaku was also purchased in March at 6 inches and has grown to 14. The pattern is a bit distracting on the front end. Skin is not that great. I am leaning towards re-homing it.

    This Kohaku was purchased at 7 inches in March and is up to 14 already. Pattern seems stable. The second step has some beni in front of it that is hidden down in the layers and should be visible in...
  9. Thoughts....Should they stay or should they go

    I had made a few purchases in March and I am debating which ones to get rid of. August starts a nice cool down here where growing temps get more ideal. I would like to remove a few to give more room...

    IMHO, the S&G will be easier to build and clean than that set up. With S&G you can change the filtration up and add more to it. That design seems limited by space, height, and being connected to each...
