    I don't hand spawn any of my fish. I just condition the parents let them spawn naturally. Most people who hand spawn their goldfish are looking for the much higher hatch rate that it results in, Since I raise a limited number of fish I don't have a need for a thousand fry each spawn.

    Just picking some goldies for the Atlanta show (September 18 & 20, 2009)
    This will be my last show this year so I would like to finish with a good show.
    When I get them all picked I'll give you an advanced viewing since I don't have any competitor that post here.

    So when you get the new tanks set-up let me know and I'll fix you up with some nice goldies
    The Panda's are one of the best sellers

    You just kind of develop a eye or feel for which fish will show well with which judges(American or Oriental) then there is a certain amount of luck involved as well. The two winners from the Chicago show will go if they are in good condition and the fish that I was sure that would do well at Chicago but won jack
