    new spawning

    Hi All

    I was communicating with Rich Rombold (SJ Koi) a few days ago and he informed me that he used my Maruyama Kohaku (avatar fish) that I had given him for a spawning. I am very excited to see the tosai and will hopefully get the opportunity when I go down to the farm for a visit this fall. I will post some pics when I do.

    Some of you may remember the story behind this fish, about it's shoulder having a deformity. The question is whether or not it is genetic or not. I'm glad he took the chance and tried, as Maruyama felt this was one of his very high quality Nisai when I purchased her.

    I have no idea, but I would "think" that he's crossing with his own stock to be able to note the variations of quality, etc. between the various groups. Maybe Richard will see this thread and comment.
