    Impressive Momotaro Shiro Utsuri

    It is great to witness such fine piece of Shiro at your warm climate.
    Taking a break off GoSanke is wise.
    Utsuri deserve just as much attention, if not more.
    You are a proud owner of this Momo Shiro!
    Please help comment on the thread HOW TO CHOOSE A SHIRO.
    Your selection process come useful to many curious hobbyists.
    Appreciate your comments. Love this living jewel!
    Also feedback on Shiro's nutrition for maintaining Shiroji.
    Madison BK.

    Michael, Thks. I have been keeping a keen eye on her. She has a healthy appetitie and has put on much bulk but not length. The sumi is developing nicely. A month earlier,we had heavy air pollution when the acrid smoke from forest fires in a neighbouring country got blown over here. Then a heavy hailstorm unloded a substantial quantity of acid ladden hailstones into my pond. This screwed up the water and the kois suffered as well. the sumi on this koi turn a shade pale!

    I will try to bowl her this weekend for a picture and share it with you all.

    with you indicating your pond and practices get black to max out, I am concerned the head is going to become all black...except for a small circle around the right eye... but that isn't a certainty...it might go an extremely different direction.... the Head sumi just doesn't seem anywhere near settled.

    [QUOTE=luke frisbee]the Head sumi just doesn't seem anywhere near settled.
    Luke, The sumi at the head is very submerged. ie it is like under a layer of skin. If the sumi doesnt surface well, then it will spoil the overall appearance. Sumi on Shiros can spring surprises just like Dr Teh's. From nothing on the head, his shiro grew a nice menware!

    An update photo of my Shiro. She has grown 5 cm in the 5 months she has been in my pond. The sumi at the tail and the head is a lot darker now. The 3rd sumi patch on the right has consolidated. Girth has increased. Overall, I am quite satisfied with her development. What do you think?

    I think she is a wonderful fish. And, she is developing slowly. You are going to have a few years for her to become her best.

    Thanks for the comments. I especially like Mike's "You are going to have a few years for her to become her best" Certainly good mileage for the money and if she doesn't finish, I will think of her as a Tategoi!
