    Shinkokai All Japan Male Champ

    I was browsing Momotaro site and came across this picture of this 5x kokugyo winner and 2x male champ.

    The volume on this male koi is very impressive and I was curious as to how it developed. Does anyone know of the history of this koi? Pehaps pictures from it's previous kokugyo wins.

    Thanks,
    Dan

    Thanks Don, I have the issue and found the picture.

    I went threw all the KB back issues hoping to find earlier pictures of this fish and couldn't find any. I was hoping to see some of this koi's development. I was wondering at what age could one determine that this fish, although male, could carry that kind of volume.
