    #59 Momotaro Ryu Sanke Male 41cm For Sale

    SOLD!!!!!
    Size: 41cm (16.1 inches)
    Sex: Male
    Born: 06/09/2009
    Breeder: Momotaro Koi Farm
    Certificate: Yes
    Price: $500

    This is a beautifully balanced certified Momotaro Ryu sanke with very consistent beni, soft snow-white shiroji and lacquer black sumi. Please note the changes in presence in just three months of growth. He has a kohaku pattern with very nicely placed sumi and a couple of ginrin scales that is indicative of excellent skin quality. The snow-white shiroji is of very good quality especially given the fact that I have been feeding a mixture that contains 20% Saki-Hikari Color. IMO this sanke will be very competitive at koi shows a couple of years down the road if given the right growing environment. I hope that someone will purchase him. Otherwise I will be very tempted to keep him when I have to ship him back to Brian Sousa this fall.

    Please note that this will be based on a first-pay-first-served basis so please reserve this sanke today. I accept PayPal, personal checks or money order. I can ship as soon as payment is received via Southwest Airlines (preferred), UPS Next Day Priority or FedEx Next Day Priority.

    I didn't think it was possible to ship koi back to Japan.

    Hi Ethan. Yes that is correct. It grew only 4cm over 3months. Please keep in mind that I had all of them in my 1,500 gallon QT for almost two months and were handled frequently during that time. Now there are a total of 47 koi (including my girls) in my backyard 9,000 gallon pond. They are eating aggressively and, with the right water change, should be growing much faster now. Obviously I don't have Mississippi River Magic water and BWC Gold.

    I was just making sure. I don't have tremendous growth on all my fish. I have a tancho and a sanke that just won't grow. Its all about genetics and giving them the right opportunity to grow.

    Its a very nice fish.
