#66318 Woah thats looks really nice now.
Sanke Darren that looks nice as well hard to see through the net though.
On the whole these were really great koi - never had shintaro before and we found them slow burners in the development stakes but worth the wait thats for sure. We were suprised at the slow development of our remaining one as it is male and they usually "finish" early compared to females. :handgestures-thumbup:

LOL yes but honestly it looks really small (the koi not my ar*e.) I actually like the koi a lot especially if it is a photo from ages ago!
On the laptop I can see sumi on the other showa now it really looked like a kohaku on my tablet screen.
I tend to go for not a lot of sumi too but have been caught out several times we have a dianichi that literally has 1 spot of sumi on its head after a year so I think it will be on ebay shortly.

#66513 I will have to teach Miacat to take proper photos.... This is one of the KEEPERs in the spawning (assuming we can ever find it amongst its 5000+ brothers and sisters)...
