showing the same fish

I was wondering what you all thought about sending the same fish to a different show every two weeks? Or do you send to every other show?.... ect. Your thoughts?

Do it all the time.. don't have enough fish right now to have two strings. Got a female bicolor I showed all last season and showing here this season too. She always wins her class. Not nice enough for variety win.. but she pulls in the points.

I do it too. They get fed very well while they are home. I usually feed grindals to my show fish for the protein in the evenings and pellets in the morning for convenience. The show fish tend to stay thin so I push protein.

once we start our breed, i'd be scared of the stress that sending one fish to multiple shows would cause. i really need to get to work designing a gyro-stabilised tank so they can be driven places without sloshy travel water!

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.
