    All 4 are female-but I don't know about gaurantee. The photos from the breeder are terrible so I hope they look better in person.

    Not a Tancho by standards asthe Hi spreads past the Shoulder and it has a separate spot on the nose.

    AKCA Guideline

    "The Tancho spot must be between the eyes and preferable perfectly round. It must not go back onto the shoulder of the koi or down to the nose of the koi."

    To be blunt, a poor example of a Gin Rin Showa that may end up as a GR Shiro.

    Sean the hi on the tancho spot looks thin so some or all of it may fade. if it all fades away then you showa becomes a shiro.

    enjoy your sparkley little one as is grows and changes it will teach you a lot. welcome to the addiction, er, umm, I mean hobby
