      Pearl Gin Rin Sanke

      This 9in Sekiguchi was the second fish I picked up this year. Donít expect or want it to get large. Been looking for looking for one for a few years. Thoughts?

      Does San Diego allow GR Koi for Baby Champ?

      This year as well as last they have a Baby Champ A as well as B. But also the baby Champ is the best koi of that size at the show. I've seen Shiro's, Gin Rin Showa, As well as Kikukru's win when they only have one winner. This fish is just at nine inch plus or minus 1/4 in today so it might have to complete with fish 3in bigger which could be it's down fall. size seems to matter even in smaller fish sometimes.

      The reason I asked is that, most, if not all, of the shows I go to, usually only allow Gosanke for Baby Champ unless there is a B group.

      Interesting it'seems that in SoCal best koi of the day can win baby, young, or even a Goshiki win GC at a Calif Show. I've seen Gin Rin win Young champ at socal ZNA. Shiro's win GC in San Diego etc. How do you feel it should be Russell? Best koi or best Gosanke?

      It should always be best Gosanke, especially if it is a ZNA show. It is a requirement but it is not always adhered to. I saw the Goshiki win at a Caifornia show, but it was at Fresno which is not ZNA and the Shiro GC at San Diego is also because the club is not ZNA. I saw an Ochiba win Grand Champion at the Roseburg Koi Shwo in Oregon as well but that is also not ZNA.

      The San Diego Show will be Awarding a Baby Champ "A"/Gosanke and a Baby Champ "B" Non Gosanke.. I believe Jim's Pearl Scale Sanke would compete in the "B" group.
