    Welcome.....Nice fish! I would definitely add this one to my collection. She has a nice Kohaku pattern with all three colors on her face as well Motoguro. Nice confirmation. Looks like a keeper in my opinion. I think this is a fish that will keep you smiling for quite some time.....P.S. would love to see some pictures of your "facilities". From the looks of this fish, I think you have more to share........

    Nice fish, decent conformation with a relatively wide mouth/head it should have some potential for growth. The head looks a little yellow, but perhaphs that is just because she is recently out of the mud. She has a good motogoro, and a nicly balanced pattern. I can't commen't on the beni, sumi, sashi etc due to the photo, but it looks like a very promissing fish to enjoy.

    Based on the rays (or spikes) at the pecs, the breeder thought this showa is close to her peak and culled acordingly. Mr. Marudo might be wrong! but the odds is in his favor for sure. If the showa is cheap cheap to gamble and to learn, why not? stevec
