    Taro brought a shunrai for all to see (you need Shirley's pocketbook to take that one home). A shunrai being a kawarigoi raised the question of how to judge kawari since they are so diverse. Taro says the one that would cost the most is best!

    So, Rob, just exactly what IS a "shunrai"? Any pictures, by any chance? Unfortunately, I have already more than maxed out for my pond's capacity, so there will be no new fish, for some time. (I just had a do-it-yourself [with a LOT of help from my friends] shade structure installed over most of the pond, which goes a long way toward easing the over-crowded conditions. The water temp is also down to a mere 80 degrees F.)

    I've bumped up a thread from a dozen years ago. The Shunrai brought to the Orlando meeting by Taro was not quite as 'messy' as the ones posted in that thread, and had a good Asagi-like gray ground that was not going dark. However, I expect it would darken in time. The sumi overlay on the Hi was not too strong, but had the appearance of being in the process of expanding. It was male, so I did not inquire about the price. Taro did tell me that if it had been female he would have held it for another year and tripled the price.
