      I think they are very rare and probably very expensive too. Stephen rented a killer Atarashi Sumi showa that was selected by AKCA for a very special award. Nicest one I’ve seen. ...Lots of Drool The sumi is suppose to be more stable and ink-like black.
      How exciting to be in a Koi of the Year and Pond of the Year contest. Way to go Stephen… ....You ROCK!

      Just curious - where did you get the idea that Stephen "RENTED" that showa? I believe you were misled!

      Its mentioned on the other thread about rental fish. Did I misunderstand Stephens post? Or was that part of a slam too? If so, I guess I misread the post and thought that was a way to promote a breeders line without having to buy it.

      I think you misunderstood the post. It is against show rules in a hobbyist show to show fish that are not hobbyist owned. As I was in charge of benching, I would not have allowed that to happen. I had personal knowledge of who owned what fish in Russ Peters tank. There were tanks offered to ALL fish dealers who wished to bring fish that were customer owned. There were three dealers who did this!
