    Here they are October 18 2008 pictures ( I am not real happy with the way the pictures turned out )

    #32 face shot
    #77
    I am happy with the four inches of growth and how they are filling out.
    I have great hopes for them both. Right now I favor # 32.

    Bruce, I favor 77.
    if the sumi comes up across the shoulders were it is hinting at I believe it would pull the pattern together.
    and she has 3 colors on her face...and that tail tube looks thicker, I like her conformation better.
    but I am just learning so .......

    Out of the two fish the #2 koi has the better colors. The beni is much better on the second koi. I just wish that it had some more white on the face. I will coninue to keep both koi to seee how they change.
    I have learned from this grow out, thanks to all.
    #1 = 14 /34 inches female
    #2 = 13 1/4 inches female

    Not to worry, Bruce: With showa, the race is not to the swift -- and there's a long way to go with both of these girls.

    Overall, you've done a nice job and there's something to like with both of them!
