    Has lighting struck twice with this shiro utsuri? I hope so!!

    I purchased this hatchling shiro utsuri recently...about 4-5inches. The supplier was pan intercorp...but, I do not know the breeder. Several years ago, I purchased my favorite shiro utsuri from a local koi dealer at 3-4inches. It has been developing very well, as the pictures display. It has also been successful in competitions. The breeder was marusho and the dealer was toyoma. I was at the same retailer a week ago, and found this shiro...and it immediately made me think of my favorite. Any chance I could have gotten lucky twice? opinions are welcome...and appreciated.

    If your desire to succeed is greater than your desire to fail, then you will succeed.

    At that size, just have to wait and see. It is certainly worth the try.

    If it was from Pan Intercorp, it's more than likely omosako. I too just picked up a couple tosai shiro utsuri from Pan Intercorp. They're just too much fun to watch develop!

    Fingers crossed for you on your new one. If it turns out anything like your first... jackpot!

    I received an email this morning from Joel B. It was from Omosako. So, I am even more happy with the purchase!!!
