    Kindai showa changing

    First two photos were posted in a thread on November 22nd of 2004 when I purchased the koi. The next two photos were taken last week. Sumi now starting to appear on the head and shoulder area. Thought I would share...

    Very nice looking Koi, but to be honest, I doubt that the underlying Sumi on the white ground will ever develop. I think you will end up with Kage Sumi on the white ground, and solid Sumi on top of the Kohaku pattern.

    But, would very much like to be proved wrong! Enjoy the Koi, have fun!

    Goodnight for now,

    Mike.

    Thumbs up I like it !!!

    Keep us in the loop on it's development. I think it would make the fish more interesting if some kage sumi does develop on the shiroji. I attached a picture of one of my projects to share with you guys.

    Dan,
    Nice to see you on the board again! Your black always seems to do well in your and Rod's ponds. I think you found out what you pond is good for!

    MichaelS: What do you see/not see that leads you to that conclusion?

    Erwin, I got a fuzzy pix of that showa from November. 12-15" size class. When was your picture taken? Seems smaller then.

    Edit: OOopps. Wrong Showa. Sorry.

    Mike, thanks for asking the question I was thinking.

    Dan, I like the Showa, true Kindai...I agree with Mike S that I don't think there will be more sumi to come up, but anything can happen. I like the Kohaku pattern it gives it more of elegant look, maybe if there wasn't and sumi on the nose it would make for a nice Sanke. Keep us posted on it.
    The world sleeps as the chance to learn something new passes.

    Here is my kindai showa project...2 year comparison (both original shots taken in the same bowl) that I have composited.

    The breeder is Marudo, purchased November 2003 as nisai.
