    Thank-you Mark. I saw some incredible looking goshiki in the mix...

    Thanks, Mark. Is Hiroi still considered one of the premier goshiki breeders in Japan?

    You and I are thinking alike, Dick! There were some Kohaku and Showa that weren't half bad, too.

    Awesome Mark. Hiroi remains my inspiration for goshiki.

    Interesting cha utsuri (doitsu?) at 24sec

    Hi Mark,

    Keep those videos coming! I really enjoy them...especially, those time-lapse shots of the mudpond with mountains in the backdrop and the sun moving across the sky...just breath-taking! Thanks!

    Question:
    I notice many of Hiroi's kois in this video have distinctive humps on their shoulders. Personnaly, I think that hump makes a fish look more powerful. However, I do not see very many kois with those humps in the show circuits anymore. Is the trend in the industry to breed away from that traight in favor of a smoother shoulder?

    Best Regards,
    Sunny
