    Sumi quality is okay on the fish, maybe as a breeder it would do fine. The one thing I should point out in this Showa is the weak bodyline it posesses. If you are looking to breed Showa I would look for a Showa with stronger bone conformation in both the male and female oyagoi. The fish has a weak head and weak tail joint. In plan sense the fish is flashy.

    Well, I would look more in the lines of quality oyagoi. The Showa posted above is maybe a couple of years out before you find out what quality traits it has.
