    the middle Kohaku is the best fish of the lot. It has the typical Dainichi Bodyline, but beni is a tad bit more persimmon than Kagura. But I agree with Nancy they are Koi.

    KoiCop: Yeah, but the text doesn't say they were bred by Dainichi. I guess it's the lawyer in me. I assume any ambiguity is negative unless specified otherwise. If bred by Dainichi, I am impressed by the size. I can get that growth on a March hatchling in warm Florida water by December, but from May/June to October in a Niigata mudpond? That would require some very low stocking. I'd be all the more interested in parentage that such resources were devoted to these.

    Eric-san. That was perfect except just a few wrong kanji words.
    But he won't understand it because I believe that he not a Japanese.

    Thank you folks for all your responses and thanks Stan especially for explaining my name (and you are 100% correct)!
    I am from Hangzhou (and Stan, yes, I can understand Hang-Jou and we do have a very beautiful and famous lake), China. And I am very new to this forum (thanks Brian for giving me the right to post) and very new to koi-keeping as well.
    I am sorry for misleading some of you. These three Tosai are bred in China using Dainichi mother and Sakai father (I believe he is from the Rose bloodline). They were spawned in end Apr/early May and may be the Kohaku a few days earlier. They were the first production by a very new koi farm in China although the owner has been breeding koi for a bigger farm for about 7 years now. The climate in the farm area is almost tropical and this, as Mikem said, might give rise to the fact that the Tosai are much larger than the Niigata ones.
    I bought them during the Ningbo Koi Show last weekend and I think they are really good, especially considering the fact that they are the first generation of that breeder and that he recommended the three himself. According to the breeder, the first Kohaku might not have the best pattern, but its body conformation is really good and expects a jumbo out of this one; the second Kohaku has a better pattern and acceptable body conformation; the Sanke is a natural choice from his limited stock in the show.
    I'll see how they go in a couple of years' time.

    Thanks again folks and hope to receive your help and advice down the track! I have found this forum a very good one.

    Regards,
    Yi (this is my Chinese name)
