PostSubject: Showa Growout   Sat Apr 25, 2009 12:31 pm

Since this board has been so busy this last few days....

I bought this showa at the end of August at our show for the grow and show competition. No idea how old it was. Paid R950 for it. Breeder is Sekiguchi.
It was 14cm when bought. By mid January it was 37cm. By April it was touching 50cm.

It's a hi showa but it appears to have enough shiro to give it some nice balance and there is a slim possibility that it might even become a two step. The hi is even and very deep and strong. Some might think it's too 'finished' by after seeing what the breeders in Japan keep as grow on tategoi I've changed my mind on the 'finished' beni look. It appears to be female and is growing in length at this stage. Sumi that is up is very good but how it develops remains a closed book for now. Pics are from January

What do you think about this one?

Ongelooflike groei. Ek het nie besef mens kan sulke groei kry nie. “Well done” Ek dink ek moet jou aanstel as konsultamt hier op die plaas om hierdie outjies van my te laat groei.. Is dit die Steroids wat jy daar in Beijing en Boston gekry het wat dit veroorsaak.LOL. Weereens, baie geluk met jou nuutste prestasie in die Boston.



As die Sumi meer gaan raak en gebalanseerd word op die Showa, gaan jy ‘n puik Showa he. Altyd ‘n “gamble” met showa’s, wat hulle so fasineerend maak.



Met sulke groei verwag mens groei merke. Die hi is egter diep en sterk en dit blyk asof die sumi van goeie kwaliteit is. Altans, dit wat reeds sy kleure toon.

You should have bought some land in Paarl for a farm...our water temp is really optimal for growing koi! cheers

BUT I think genetics plays a big part as does food and filtration. The ave size of a 18month old koi sold in SA is around 35 - 45cm. I bought this sanke at 58cm when she was 18months old in Nov 07. At the show in August she was 68 cm and now, note even 3 years old she is pushing 74cm. She improved so much that it's unreal. She has a slight kink at the moment due to one ovary being more active than the other so hopefully when I spawn her in spring it will get better.

Ernst, ek dink die groei het tedoen met die bloedlyn Sekiguchi of die batch wat Orient afgebring het want Eugen (Oigen) het ook een gekoop by die skou en syne het ook so verskriklik gegroei, syne is nou 45cm. En daai groei is behaal in 'n 7000l dam.

Ek sukkel nog om hom te oortuig om 'n photo teneem...Ek kry hom nie geoortuig nie maar die showa sal by die shou wees....ne Eugen. Very Happy

Dis meer 'n pyn in die gat...eerlik waar. Ek het in 2006 'n Maruda nissai ingevoer....Pragtige vissie en dit het my nogal redelik gekos.



Hier is dieselfde showa in 2007.



Ons sit nou in 2009 en ek wag nogsteeds vir die swart om terug tekom. Volgens die kenners gaan die showa se swart eers stabiliseer oor so 5 jaar. Ek het nie nou 'n nuwer photo nie maar moet se hy lyk al beter alhoewel die swart die heel tyd rond skuif. Ek het ook darem al 'n groter bak aangekoop sedert daai tyd. geek

Eugen se hy gaan 'n photo vir ons post. bounce
