      Number 9 just won best in size 1 at the SC koi show. I sure got a beautiful fish. When Brady brought it to the show, he also brought a small showa. I bought it and entered it and it won best showa. Thanks Brady.

      Forgot my camera. Bart took a bunch and I'll try to get copies, or maybe get him to post them. The Greenville Koi Show thread has a lot of pics, but I didn't see my fish there,-----yet.

      Well done. .. a champ already , nice .. So did u take him home already . It is cold here and I am thinking my one will have to spend the winter in the basement with the QT chagoi . too cold to go in the pond .

      I really wanted a tancho but the ones for selection did not have the nice round spot . 6 was better but too small .

      I agree. I'll take my champ home when I go this afternoon and keep looking for a nice tancho.

      Tosai are always a gamble, and a tancho tosai is usually a long shot, so you want to be pretty sure about your purchase.

      Pretty close to an echo of what Bart(Hammerhead) told me. And I value his advice very highly. He's taught me a lot about Koi and I feel like I'm learning from one of the best.

      Bart is a great teacher (and friend) to have.

      After watching, and helping, him at the SC Koi show this weekend, it was obvious that many others feel the same way.

      I'm going to "unstick" this thread. Hopefully, this weekend I'll get a chance to set up a forum for this group buy in the growout forum and label the fish that were picked.

      If anyone is interested in purchasing any of the unselected tosai, please contact Brady directly. They will be available for a week and then will be placed back in the mud.

      If you do purchase any, please report on their progress in this forum even though their purchase would not be an "official" part of the group buy. It would still add to our education regarding these koi.

      My pics didn't turn out good. Here's one Brady sent me. She's a beauty and she's doing well in my QT.
