      Matt when I saw that koi I had to really study the photograph, we all know people mess around with lights and it was a tough decision but I pulled the trigger and I hope the genetics work, all I can do is cross my fingers

      Yes, very nice indeed! I think we'll all need to pitch in and buy you a new pair of sunglasses. Too much bling is tough on the eyes

      Can you share where you got this beauty? I'm assuming that's where the #46 reference came from, right? Male or female....looks female, but I'm usually wrong

      Kinda like looking at the sun...not much you can tell other than it's really bright.

      Are you adding him to the mix this spring, or are you going to just evaluate him for a season?

      Yes, he will be participating in a Ochiba spawn lord willing and the interesting thing is he's going to compete with a male 5 times his size it will scare some viewers but just maybe this is what the female needs some competition

      Preparations are getting underway, like new sponge filters they have to be ready to perform when needed that's where some people make their errors as to not having their filters properly cicled at the moment they are needed and that process starts for me 6 weeks before the spawn date. Now here's the new addition #46 with the male's as he joined #28 in the male tank you will see the difference in size and I have decided to call them David and Goliath �� Name:  20230122_114351_resized.jpg

      Massive size difference for sure. I guess you never know for sure until you see gin rin in the babies. Good luck this season!

      They look great. David will really be something when he gets closer to Goliath's size.

      Its on the rare side for a gin rin to grow large.

      I have suspected ginrins might tend to grow a little smaller just based on personal experience. But I have couple that are pretty large.

      Perhaps an ochiba will have an advantage due to variety, as chagoi and soragoi tend to grow larger than most varieties, something that I have see in my ochiba (non-ginrin) also.
