Pretty good. Thanks! Any signifigance to doing magic with carp on the New Year? I hate to wonder how the fish were moved in unison. LOL

You really shouldn't play with your food!

(Joe...however you wonder you are probably right!)

I don't think that PETA (People Eating Tasty Animals) has a presencce in China.

Looks like those fish are being dragged by something. They do not move like this darting motion. I owned these fish for years.

Whatever the method was (and I believe it's magnets) it can't be fish friendly. The fact that he drops the red cloth over the table was a bit fishy. Or it could have just been a red herring. ;)

Regards

Looks like the Fishin` Magician has found new Pk items to put in an act. What did he need a tablecloth for anyway? I didn`t notice any movement of shadows in the front of the table when he stepped behind it.

There was the cabinet on which the aquarium sat which probably hid the extra help.

The pronunciation of the word 'Fish' in Mandarin also means Abundance, which signifies wealth.
