AKA Judging system
A minor correction.......
In my earlier letter on the above subject I wrote:

Since the minimum number of points that can be awarded in each subcategory
is one (1), and not zero, the MAXIMUM number of points that a male specimen
could LOSE for being undersized is actually 5 (out of 55).

Here also, since the minimum number of points in this category is one (1),
and not zero, an old pair, on their last, and with no breeding potential,
but otherwise perfect, could theoretically score 96 out of 100 points. This
makes my point even more valid.

I agree entirely. Any killies, regardless of generation, that have been
hatched out and raised by the hobbyist are fine for showing. I am not sure
but I don't think the DKG allows wild-caught fish to be entered into their
annual show for the same reasons I outlined in my previous letter. Someone
please correct me if I am wrong. I know for sure that the KFN do allow wild
fish to be entered in their annual show, the justification being that these
are highly desirable as introductions to the hobby and will also fetch good
prices at the auction !
