    In in this case, since the goshiki-sanke is male and pecs looked trimmed or deformed I would probably go with the female goshiki. The male may eventually be a "dark" bodied fish (?). I don't really no what to look for at this age, would love to see some earlier age pics of that Goshiki that was in the BKKS this year, maybe some of our friends across the pond will let us know.. I thought the goshiki-sanke was sold anyways, so that makes the choice easier. Goshiki is one of favorate also, here is one of mine.

    The Sanke is still available, they responded to my e-mail this morning.

    I am scratching my head as to whether the Hosokai would darken up in my hard water?

    A nice Goshiki is the last fish I want to put in my pond.

    Nice fish.......

    I would definitely take the first one. Better conformation and a cleaner appearance. No contest...1st one has "the look"

    If it's the last fish you will add to your pond. Honestly, I wouldn't get either of them.

    Wait out, you could find better one. (Unless, they are selling it for pretty cheap)

    The first one is pretty good, but the black is coming through the hi plate. I myself prefer something like this for the hi on goshiki.

    Chris, the Goshiki will darken up but prolly not this summer.. Your water pretty warm.. But in the wiinter time I think and prolly for the show in April 2006 should be planty of time to condition that baby!

    I like goshiki. the male's pattern appeals more to me than the female. But her future is still ahead of her and that and the fact she's a lady has two things going for her.

    yes they will darken with harder water.

    Well then Bi-golly, she's on her way. She was less than half the price of the male, and for the price, we'll play with her and see what she turns into. She'll be here on Tues.

    Chris . . .

    think that goshiki lady's a beaut and you'll have many years of enjoyment ahead of you. Who'd you snag her from, if you don't mind? Don

    No sh.t!

    How the heck would they price a female that looks better then the male at half the price.

    I would take her too with that deal.
