Another fish I'd love some feedback on soon as possible.

It was also import from Marudo 2 years ago and is currently about 45 - 50cm long. Didn't actually ask whether it's male or female but I thind it's female.

Once again sorry about the poor quality of the pics but was difficult in the sun. At least you can see enought to give an honest opinion.

Would this showa be a better purchase than the kohaku I posted here: http://koionline.forumotion.com/photos-of-the-good-bad-and-ugly-koi-f1/kohaku-t1492.htm?

I think that the kohaku is a very decent koi but you guys know better than me and this is why I'm asking your opinions. What would be a decent price to pay for this showa?

The pics of the showa is not great and its difficult to say where its going. If i had to judge from the photos the kohaku looks the safest but If there is more sumi coming out on the head of the showa and if the hi appear not to be fading then i will go with the showa as it will propably have better future potential.

The Hi appears to be not string enough and fading at the back and a bit heavy on the head. Quality of Sumi and shiroji looks goood. Not a good body shape. The broadest part to far to the back and might develop into a football shape.

Hi Chris,

Jammer, maar ek sou nie een van die Koi ( Showa en Kohaku) aankoop nie. Beide se gehalte is baie swak.
