    Bro, excellent show piece Showa here. Good Shirogi and Sumi. But you need to feed color food kaw kaw so that you can ensure the uniformity of the Beni which is not apparent right now. Else, this koi is a good piece.........

    Pattern wise, this Showa is really there. Judging from the Beni on the head, it is a matter of time that the rest will follow. And remember! Judging Showa is all about the SUMI and its placement. And here, the Sumi is nicely placed onto the white.

    Yup I feel this koi is not ready for the coming yet, definitely for the future when the beni consolidate.

    I read that a showa = Kohaku + Shiro. If this is truly the case, then this koi is a good representation of that. Bro Rizal, i hope the beni color improves, as this koi has superb potential.

    Bro Rizal, having read what Kaaj said. Your Kaneko Shiro is like this showa with the hiban removed, underlying another checkerboard pattern!

    Thanks for all the comments guys. To be honest, I wasn't expecting such a positive outlook, especially after seeing some of the other collections here (you guys got some seriously nice koi la hehehe). Yes, I agree that her beni is weak. It's been that way since I got her so I'm being realistic with my expectations and don't really expect it to improve that much. Nevertheless, time will tell..

    Shukri, you also have one from the same growout.. How's it doing?

    Kaaj.. Thanks for the feedback. I'll update her photo in a couple of months to see if there's any change.

    Elmen.. Yea, it was actually the checkerboard that appealed to me when I got her.

    Cheers,
    Rizal
