      I think that is correct. I've never gotten the impression that my females only contributed size and conformation. And I don't recall hearing of Japanese breeders using females with poor pattern and color just because they had good bodies.

      And given the percentage of ginrin young that I have seen relative to the percentage or ginrin oyagoi that I have used, I tend to agree with the theory that whatever gene causes ginrin must be dominant. However, there is some question in my mind on that because you have reported few ginrin in a non-ginrin/ginrin cross. Also I think Sean did the same last year with his yababuki/platinum cross.

      Yes, I did. This is the thread that Matt is referencing. The male was standard scales and the female was Ginrin. I got roughly 15-20 percent Ginrin out of the crossing. This number is only counting the nice small Ginrin scales.

      Gotta be a somewhat boring diet... fish for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, at least he's got a nice selection to choose from

      I've fed my share of Asprey, but never a hawk. Is that a Cooper's Hawk?

      Yes to your question, he or she sits on the fence waiting for black razers we have an ample supply of them in this area.

      Our red-tailed, Cooper's, and sparrow hawks never mess with our koi, nor do the barred or great horned owls, but we keep the little koi covered due to the great blue herons.

      I apologize if I gave the impression that the hawk was going after the koi it's just that I found it so interesting that he spends so much time around all these tanks but he's just hunting for snakes
