    New Omosako Shiro Utsuri

    I bought a Omosako Shiro Utsuri. I selected the fish from a pic off the internet. I was hoping the sumi would come up and consolidate. The fish arrived last week. The sumi has already changed a lot. Some fish don't toally come across in a picture. This is one. The koi has a large head and is an agressive female at meal time. it will be fun tracking the fish over the years.

    Hey, Mike . . .

    nice big head and frame on your Omo shiro. I really like it and hope you'll keep us posted as you grow it on.

    If (when?) the Sumi rises on her face creating a menware, she is going to have a dynamite pattern. Hoping your duckling is a swan.

    Pecs do not show in the second pic, is first pic an illusion or is that how they are?

    Mike,
    The fish is going to be a lot of fun to watch. That's one fish I have problem picking for later development. We hope to add a Shiro sometime to replace the one we lost. Also kind of like the Showa in the bowl too. We'll see you in a few weeks at the koi show. Don't think we are going to bring fish this time. We are trying to get our males sold. If you know of anyone that is looking for some males...let us know.

    Marc

    The pec fins are fine. I too was concerned about the pecs until I saw the fish in person. If you notice, it's difficult to get a picture with both pecs fully extended. Hell, it's difficult to get a good pic of a koi period.


    Marc- can you send me pictures of the male fish you want to sell. You can e-mail me. I'll send you a private e-mail.

    Well you were definitely right about the Sumi consolodating. It has thickened nicely from the original pic. The facial shiro is bright white. I hope the sumi patches there go ahead an rise up. It could turn out to be a real stunner. In any case it will make a very bold statement in your pond
