    Since there is a thread about Tanaguchi koi, tot I can share with you on my new Taniguchi Sanke. Bought it recently on my tour of duty in Tokyo. Luckily she survived well during that trip which has worried me a lot thru out the flight due to her size.

    The body needs a lot to work with as this koi has not been feeding that much. Still need time to enhance the hi and sumi near the shoulder area. Please feel free to comment.

    Hi,
    I think that's a very nice Sanke you got. Once more sumi emerge on the shoulder, i believe it will be a beautiful koi.

    Bro Cetay,
    Thanks for your comment. This sanke's sumi looks messy like shotgun. But Higuchi San asked me to bare with it until all the sumi appears and merged with each other. This will form a solid sumi. Sorry for the quality of the water in the basin which was full with small particles which present in the plastic bag. I took this picture while trying to compensate the water temp by mixing with tap water as it was 12degC when I tapaued this koi.

    An interesting fish if I may say......... A maruten with balance Kohaku pattern. Now, need to be patient on the Sumi development. (ok)

    Capt, another illegal immigrant huh? haha

    I like the pattern. Cant judge the beni tone accurately but it looks like it is hard beni. I could be wrong... I have a showa with hard beni and the plate easily stretch with every growth of the body, I am slowing down on the feeding as I read that such type of beni needs slow growth but the intensity of the red is nice, this is a matter of preference. This is totally the opposite of typical dainichi's where the hi plate is elastic.

    I think when the shoulder sumi comes up fully, this will be an awesome fish.

    Wah, how many have you bought this season?

    Bro Anuar,
    How's the development of your 1st prize Shiro Utsuri in the 9th MKS? Better put her in the Shinkokai Show....... :)

    Bro Shukri, this one lah that thinks she's an orca, keep on lunging to the surface. My shinkokai tub will be themed 'sumi', so yes I am planning on showing her alongside some showas. For fun mah...

    Capt, next time bring back some gt girls yah? Terus I come to view them swimming in your pond...

    Bro Anuar,
    Yup, another illegal immigrant :-) How do you tell the diff between hard and elastic beni? I netted her for the colour and skin quality(plus she a girl). But my worry is that it could be the temp in Tokyo. So I pray hard hoping that she can sustain that way in my pond and in our kind of wx.

    Ps: gt girls means Ginrin Tancho or the real GT girls? If the real gt girls, I don't want to get her wet by swimming in my pond.... :-)

    Capt, hard means dark deep red as opposed to Bro Shukri's new kohaku where the red is light and bright, this is at least my definition lah. This is what I gathered from reading koi nations. I posted a photo of the showa in the old forum, fed her a bit more and hoshi immediately came out, I.e. Lighter red in the centre of the scale, making it look uneven. But the hoshi tells that the hi is maintainable. in some cases where sashi is not present plus hard beni, there is a possibility that the hi plate will break apart with heavy feeding.

    On the GT, I prefer them to be wet, as it will bring out the skin quality and pectoral muscle... Haha. Jangan lupa yah?

    I see ne... That one only can see body conformation. To see real quality & pectoral muscle, you still got to turn up side down...

    About the koi... Got what you mean bro.. Thanks.

    I see that the Koi Kichis knowledge nowadays have gone up to a different level, which is a good sign for the hobbyists in Malaysia..... (ok)
