    Welcome on board Kamisumi, All goromo are nice, but when you choose one, you have to look at the hi (red)patern like if it was a kohaku, it's personal question, but i like when you have different spot separate and well balanced.
    Looking at the pict, I would take in the order the 7th and the last one, but I'm not an expert like a lot of people on this forum.

    First, my biases : I do not like Goromo as a group. The Hi is usually weak and the overlay of Ai/Sumi too blurry or overwhelming. On rare occasion, there is a fish with deep red pigment accented by Ai that knocks me over, and it qualifies as Goromo, but it might as well be an entirely different variety compared to what is usually produced as Goromo. So, now that you know that I don't like any of them, you can do whatever you want with the thoughts that follow....

    I would focus on the body and the Hi. Due to angles and lighting, I do not trust what I see in the photos as necessarily being accurate. They might look quite different in person. I'd suggest to give a close look to the body of the fish in photos 1 & 2. I agree with Marco that #7 and the last one seem to be worth some attention as to their bodies. For pigment, from among these three, #1/#2 and #7 appear to be better reds today, but hard to say. At this size there is a lot of development ahead. I think I would go for the first fish, but maybe that is because the pattern gives it a stronger presence than it would have in person.

    Whichever choice you make, let it be one you enjoy. The fun is in what gives you pleasure.

    I am by no means a expert on this. I know that the color should extend on the head but there should be no netting or reticulation on that. They all possess that. I am probably going to keep them all and grow them a tad to see where they end up.

    NEVER and I don't think you will see another one like it. Bob is one lucky guy if you ask me. All I can say is I'm glad it's Bob's koi. I would hate to see someone mess this one up.

    Kamisuri, I hope so too -

    From the pictures, I can't view any scales and netting on these goromos.
    It is hard to give comments for goromo without clearly viewing the
    scales and netting.
