      My first growout...

      Everybody's fish look great! I thought I'd add my post too...

      I have very little knowledge about what to look for in tosai, but I've tried to read
      everything Dick B. writes () and have attended a lot of the online seminars
      which have been awesome! So...

      Here's my little guys "stock" photo...

      It looks even better than the picture Ned posted! Great looking Beni and snow white Shiroji! Beautiful Sanke Steve and for an S purchase is quite big Tosai.
      Good luck with it.

      Your rookie shots are a lot better than mine were. As a matter of fact its still better than the ones I take.
      Nice fish, well done

      Sweeeeet! I agree - will be fun to see the sumi develop. Looks like it will have some great placement of pattern. Obviously, you've paid attention to your seminars enough to know what to go for. But then again, I'm just a hic rookie myself

      Actually Steve, that was pretty cleverat least you didn't have to worry about the fish getting damaged by having a metal tape in the water.
