      I loved the S011 myself. The Sumi is out of this world. I just did not think it will grow big and that is the only reason I did not pick it.

      S003 is going to be a big good looking fish. You are getting sumi right at the perfect spot on the left side shoulder area.

      S073 has a great potential also.

      S011 was at the top of my list, then it was gone!
      Can I come and visit?

      I think you made excellent choices.

      I think 011 is probably male, so probably won't get huge but has a shot at show quality coloration earlier, if the beni fills in on the right pec area. 073 looks female, the big head,mouth and tail tube drew me to this one, but I hope the beni specks merge with the plates or vanish And 003 was my first choice I like the Maruten spot and the body comformation seemed the best in the whole lot.Looks female and Large tail tube. The head is smaller than 073, but longer also. The only issue currently is that one GR flake on the head It'll be neat to see the underlying sumi pop out APOLONASGR36 will probably get the biggest but I'm looking for decent size while maintaining the quality as well

      I really like S003. I was really considering picking that one but I am glad I will still see how it turns out here.

      Excellent! S003 was my eyeball drooler fish. I wasn't worthy anyway, so I'm glad he went to you! Take good care of him for me, and keep us posted on his development, plz. as I would still like to follow & learn from him.

      Only the fish will decide worthiness in the long run......All I can do is prove food, love and clean water......The rest is up to genetics and chance This fish could completely fall apart or could become outstanding.....One can only speculate to how a koi will develop there are never any definates....... Just look at Dianichi's 2010 AJKS GC Kohaku.......Does every Dianichi Kohaku end up like that........, but there's always a chance one will, even the breeders pick fish to keep and grow, hoping for GC, but even they can't be absolutely sure the fish they keep WILL develop to CG in the end BTW That Kohaku is 9 years old, so it took a long time developing to CG status, but WOW what a fish.....So Feed'em, love'em , and keep'em clean, then sit back and watch'em develope........ONLY time and the koi will tell

      Very sorry to hear of your bad luck. They were little gems. It's part of the hobby and there's nothing you can do about it except know you are not alone, and try again.
