    Due to hiccups with the phone connection, Iím still able to post for another day. Iíve had to pop back and make a few phone calls, as my mobile bill is getting silly!!

    Last 2 days culling hariwake and my heart rate went up when I saw this one in the culling net.
    I thought this would make a good show koi in the smaller sizes, but sadly the lustre does not stretch down onto the face, so no go and not No-Gyo-Sai.
    Shame. I think the lustre is fixed at this age, but Iím sure Brady or Brett will put me right.

    The black speck is in the water.

    Maurice, what size/age is the Hariwake? I assume all the others are showing glistening heads at this point.

    The skin on the head is the thickest and takes the longest to set. to get that opaque skin. It's just a matter of time and good water.

    with my baby asagi's you should see the foreheads. all cloudy and grayish blue. just the noses are white. It takes another full year before you begin to realize that hey! they are turning white!

    guard that little guy with your life!
