    it's very similar to one posted on koichat

    I love it m8, exactly what I would love to have in my pond but I've always thought it didnt exist. If you every want to sell it, drop me an email or msg. I hope it develops to its full potential for you, will be awesome if it does.

    I have been raising this one for 3 years. 19" long now. Domestic stock. Hooded Tancho Sanke. It developed a little bit of Hi on the right back and pecks which dissapoints me greatly... So much for perfection. Well, I guess thats what you get from mutts

    Dave: I've looked at so many vats of Tancho Sanke w/o ever buying one. I'd buy that one! First, what usually turns me off is the maruten is misshapen.... not on yours. Second, the maruten can be fantastic, but the Sumi will be so off balance it disturbs the eye..... definitely not yours! Third, the maruten and the Sumi pattern are synchronized, but the head is so yellow bleach would not help ... again, not yours. Is it perfect? No ... prefer the maruten to larger, the shiro on the head cleaner and the Sumi finished. Is there a perfect koi any where? ... no. Outside Japanese show mags, I think that is as good as you can get.

    Dave,

    As you can see by my avatar I like Tancho Sanke.

    As other have posted, yours is not perfect, but very nice indeed. It looks very young still, hopefully the sumi will devekop into nice stepping stone.
