      That's what I'm hoping for. The changeability of them is what I find so appealing. It also was one of the things that made it hard to figure out what to look for in a purchase.

      Brutuscz, I think I had read earlier that you had purchased from Blackwater so I was in their site right after my last post. Thank you!

      Super Kindai, that photo in post 59 made my jaw drop. Too beautiful for words. Thank you for sharing it and also the breeder information.
      Still learning as I go but y'all can call me Marilyn

      When you find another one like that, please let me know! The shiroji is unbelievable even if Photoshopped. The sumi pattern isn't completely to my liking, but on that fish, it allows the best feature, the shiroji, to be displayed without interruption. Incredible specimen of the variety. I still want a "killer whale" pattern.

      If you look closely, you'll notice that there is "blue" under the skin. That is more sumi waiting to rise and IT USUALLY DOES! Hope for your sake I'm wrong about this one as it would be nice if it stayed like that!

      So, if your friend bought that whole sale at Kaneko for $10 then the US markup would probably be $100?
