We did a little competition over at KOIKeepers website where we all posted some of our Showa.

Nothing fancy just basic and hopefully along the way will give us a good chat on the variety and give us some good pictures for discussions.

So out of the 27 Showa below what would you like to see in your pond, what do you think would be favorite to the judges at a show?

Regards
Graham

Koiaddict.......I would say that 9 and 24 stood out the most for me.

I am a showa nut, love them the most, have around 7 in my pond, should take pics some time and post here.

No 11

Stunning shiroji
Good bodyshape
Lots of development still to come
Like the underlying sumi on head which will improve the appearance and secure an interesting face pattern
Well balanced
Tail tube could be a bit thicker to improve appearance of strenght

I think no. 1 has the most potential just needs more time to develop Wink Look at the perfect tail! Beni will thicken with age, definitely the one I let grow. Look closely at the head it almost looks as if the pattern will be menware!


But right now, I would have to agree with Paul No. 11 definitely, great body and great pattern, the pattern is also balanced.
