  • This Kindai Showa Should be Fun To Watch

    10 1/2 inch Ooyama bred kindai showa. Should be fun to watch this one develop.

    The sumi and hi on top of each other on the nose is an interesting risk.

    I really like it at first glance. This could get Baby Champ...

    Nice fish.

          Mike - shiro is better than photo. Body and head shiro the same.

          Aquatori...bought it locally. Just came in from Japan. Saw a photo but wanted to see it in the flesh. Expensive but very nice.

              Dan,

              Very nice,looks like there may be quite a bit of Sumi in the future what do you think? Do you think this is a male?

                Sumi is in all the right places and appears potentially to be a good amount of it. A couple of us checked this koi and it appears female from what we can see. Time will tell though. Definitely want to photo this one quite often in the next few years.

                      DB,
                      That dang koi looks like a japanese caricature of a koi...over-exagerated and definitive.
                      A wonderful strange looking koi...like no other...are you sure you aren't playing with your Photoshop?

                        No Luke ........not playing with photoshop.... actual photo untouched....lowest setting on camera.

                        Danm......Yes, that's where I got it.

                          DB,
                          I think I have part of the answer. The old Rinko mag used to show there cartoon koi with a highly-stylized "o" for their mouth...Do you remember them?

                            Yeah Luke, I kinda do...I see what you're referring to now. I'll have to go dig out one of those old copies and look.
