    I'm wondering if it has any matsunosuke blood running in it?

    This Sanke is more on the new style Sanke or should I say back to the old style. Sumi quality looks very good and the beni is still persimmon. The shiroji looks very clean. I like it....keep us up to date..

    I'm a bit worry of motoaka on the left dorsal fin, would it emerge later? Considering she will be sansai on next June 2006

    the bigger this koi gets and with the coming together of the black, it will be a very striking dominant koi as the school goes by.....

    Don't you mean the right pectoral fin?? Okay, in response - usually as the fish grows and the shoulders widen, this will be more "under" the fish and should also "tighten up" as she matures. Really like this sanke.

    Monscine, in your original post you said this fish would be nisai this next June. Have you now corrected it to be "sansai" next June? That would make sense in relation to her size!?!?

    I would take very good care of this koi, It has the potential to be a very high class sanke when reaching 80 cm and more.
    I would enjoy seeing this koi at 6 years old, by that time this new type sumi should be set in
    I understand some breeders have introduced showa blood in to sanke to bring back big sumi and if so it may not be stable until 6 years old
