Johan......I reckon your eye for koi is very decent!

I like to think I have a moderately decent eye and these all appeal to me except for the 3rd on, if the 3rd one's face just had a break of white on it then that would have been super....I'm just not a fan of menkaburi (full red face).......the front is just a little too heavy for me....sorry.

The same for the 2nd, altho the pattern is much better with the red nose, here a break on the shoulder would have been nice, also just a little front heavy but still a very nice sanke.

The first one I really hope the hi holds on this one, the sashi worries me a bit on that 2nd step, just hope that is not a sign that the hi is going........if it does and you get sumi on the back and in between the hi patterns on shiro then can be a very nice looking fish.

Last is my favourite....really a nice pattern, well balance hi pattern, and the sumi looking good in the right places, mouth looks nice and big.....hope everything holds and more on this one.

Furthermore I think they are very decent additionals to any pond, well done!

Hi Johan,

I agree with Cliff on all the fish, please I'm not saying anything bad about them ( they have a lot of good points ) but please remember to pay more attention to the sashi when you buy fish.

Enjoy them and most of all learn from them .

Regards,
Costa.

Hi Johan
I think the last one will turn out the best, like Costa said, look at the sashi when you buy fish and also the kiwa. Kiwa need to be crisp and must not fade anywhere or the hi on the fish will go some time soon. The sashi must have a nice edge where the pattern will complete and must not be more than two scales deep. Johan be patient with these fish. One thing I learned from Costa is that Sanke takes just as much time as Showa and are a very very difficult variety. Lots can still happen and people give up to easy on them thinking the fish are going the wrong way and the next guy takes it on. After time the second owner are proud of the fish because he gave it time. Ask Costa to tell you the tale of the " Kohaku with a shimi" and then when you visit him, go see the fish. affraid affraid Breeding Sanke is also not a joke because of this reason. Culling Sanke takes time because you have to look deep into that little fish's future and its hard. Me and my uncle cull and then my grandpa cull our cullings again for his mud pond, from what we can see now, is that we did cull some of our best fish. Sad
