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?

I sold this koi beginning of last year. It did not want to grow at all. It was 2 years old and still stuck at 25cm. (I really have bad luck with doitsu kois).

The koi went to a nice old couple with a 5000 liter pond.
