    I don't know how she'll do in this contest with the sumi still mostly down, but I'd still bet money on her down the road Losta changes still to come, and I'm thinkin' all of them good
    Body conformation is rock solid, beni looks to have long term strength, and slow sumi can be a very rewarding thing

    Hi, Meg.

    Well, I bought an Ogata at the same time but it was not in this growout. She is doing fine, just no pics right now.

    Thanks for the comments guys. I was pleased with growth over the last 6-8 months, when you consider she was in 45-60 degree water and not fed much.

    Agreed, this fish is not finished now........we like it OK for that.

    Face/head sumi was much more prominent in winter water. Hoping for this sumi in pattern to strengthen with age of course -to bring showa balance to the fish. Long term, I love the skin, conformation, and beni promise (checkout the center of scales).

    Uh, Scott says he will keep her.
