      I'm thinking I'm going to pass on this growout. I have 2 near show quality showa already and I prefer more of a accent sumi than bold blocks. Don't get me wrong, these are top quality. They just aren't to my taste is all.

      Brad,

      I am not rying to convince you about participating in the growout, I just want people to understand that the Showa are like regular Showa in the sense that their Sumi patterns will be diverse, not just bold blocks of sumi.

      I was just wondering what the limit is. If there is one and if these fish were not bieng baught in shuch large numbers what someone would expect to spend on 1 or 2 of them. If anybody knows,if not that is ok to.

      If they start to sell quickly in large orders we will impose a limit on purchases, but that hasn't been a problem in the past. Stephen is usually the only one that purchases large quantities, and he won't do that until he knows everyone has had a chance to purchase.

      As to the price, I do know the answer to that question, but I don't want to reply to that question without clearing it with Russ. However, we are getting an extraordinary discount.

      $250.00 to $300.00. Mr. Sakai is allowing PSKoi to purchase these Showa at a reduced rate to allow this to happen.

      Here's a few shots of some 13-14" fish that were available at the Sakai Seminar this past weekend. These are two year olds, but the quality level is comparable.

      Enjoy
