    Well staright Showa bloodline quality will only come from one bloodline..."Dainichi"....Now finding a breeder that uses straight Dainichi Bloodline is kinda hard and expensive. But alot of breeders mix and match with their Showa Bloodline.

    A cheap and good Showa breeder would be Ogata. Ogata is better known for their Gin Rin Showa and Showa lines in General.

    I agree with Tonio, your showa posted does not appear to have the quality you are loking for in a breeder. Not sure if you can find a high quality Ogata showa for breeding cheap. If you look at the showa's in the thread of our fish. you will see all our showa's are from Ogata. Prices can be steep on 3 year old and up. You can usually get a very nice show quality 2 year old for a good price. Females around $2000 up to about $3500, males around $1000 to $1500.

    Toshio sakai's new beni/sumi on his showa is really outstanding. I am very pleased with the tosai i got this spring and it's development. maybe we could talk Russ into posting some pics on his visit there this fall.....
