    It leaves a beautiful impression. It looks like it has a bit of messy sashi, however that could be forgiven if it were a younger fish. The sumi looks fairly finished at this point though, although the motoguro is not quite even (but it's close). May I ask the age size and breeder? I must say that I would be very happy to own that specimen.

    plan to stop by tomorrow, sure will say hello for you.
    always very very happy to hear your comments. I just was thinking
    of a posting to ask for comments from you, Tony, and Koiczar.

    Now, I am waiting for comments from other two.

    very nice koi.. Very close to being finished.. Good koi to show very soon.. The thing I would only pick out is to show some white near tail... Black makes the tail joint look very week.

    I offered but Mike haven't accepted it yet;-))

    Heard of this showa came from the same parents of my showa that I purchased couple years back. Do you remember this showa that you saw it in Japan during the Japan trip you did with Don?

    Here is that showa.
