    It is a toss up between the 4th and 6th kois. I think the 6th koi could be a monster when grown up. The 4th kois is patterned very similar to my own Isa showa(~50 cm).



    As a side note, someone knowledgable told me that Isa's kois tend to be skinny-bodied. Is this true? My own koi does not have much volume either.

    I like the first one. The third seems to be a nice 'old style'.

    Maybe Erwin san can elaborate more on this since he bought an Isa Showa Tosai earlier this year. Also, Dunkel has a very nice Isa Showa Sansai, maybe he can throw in his two cents.

    I like the fourth, also.
    It seems the hi and sumi are coming up slow(ish) and evenly.
    The others look like they'll finish quite early and possibly have overwhelming sumi.
