I should mention Geert had initially chosen to post annoymously and revealing his identity only just now. I think the strategy works well in getting unbiased comments. tongue.gif

On the issue of getting little comments on top view ranchus, my feeling is there're very few true blue tvr keepers here. Sure, many members own tvr but are keeping them for their looks only. How it swims is of very little importance, much like some fashion magazine models; look nice on paper but walks creepled.

So, many have learnt how to select a tvr for the right look but given a good ranchu that doesn't fit in that guideline is marked as undersirable.

We have done a private poll on whether appreciating a tvr for the looks only is okay. If i recall correctly, majority voted yes much to everyone surprise.

So geert, don't be dishearten by the lack luster and wrong comments. It won't be easy to make many of us understand the true joy of keeping tvr because the grace & joy of watching the little creature swim can only be appreciated by observing it in front of you, live. Very few has this oppurtunity.

But i think the academy still serves it purpose as a starting point for newbies to understand the basics of tvr. For one thing, i think many learnt how to distinguish a thai from a jap and not so valnerable to LFS's wild claims, among other insights.
