    The first one loock the best to me, difficult to compare with the second because the pict is not so clear, and the third loock really nice but the hi on the head is too asymetrical for me. Anyway I wood like to have one like that in my pond, is like to compare a Ferrari to a De Tomaso.

    The Dainichi and Momotaro seem too small to be 4 years old. The Momotaro also seems much younger than that in its body proportions. Perhaps it is the camera angle. While I do not much care for the simple pattern, the body shape and thickness of the caudal area make me prefer the Momotaro. All have nice shiroji. The Beni of the Momotaro seems equal or better than the others.

    None of them really do anything for me. Just not to my taste that's all.

    If i had to choose one of these then it would be the 2nd one (Momotaro) becasue the pigmentation on the head on the other two doesn't seem right to my inexperianced eye.

    Would be interesting to see how the breeders expected these koi to develop or if at 3 - 4 years old they are finished.

    My order would be: 1. Momotaro 2. Dianichi 3. Ogawa
    Greg.
