I have to mention that this photo must have been mirrored and enhanced because the original does not look like the image above.
Here is the original.
I have not much experience with the doitsu varieties but this showa seems to grow very slow compared to the other wagoi koi in my pond.
Most of my tosai either doubles their length or gets very close to doubling it but this little lady only grew 7cm.
Any comments on the showa?
