      At this point I have no way of taking good pictures and may not for a while. I'll have to figure out something after they arrive in the US. They all will grow big, parents are over 1 meter, and they are fairly evenly matched in quality.

      Russell, may I ask which one you favor the most out of the Dainichi showas you picked up? Both the 4 expensive tosai as well as the group buy?

      After we left finished at Marusei Koi farm Masaru took us to get set up with a loaner digital camera. Once we were set he took us to a breeder that does Hirenaga Koi. These are longfin.

      he has many varieties of longfins. Kohaku, Sanke, Showa, Goromo, Budo Goromo, Kujaku, Goshiki, Shusui, Ochiba, Hariwake and a few others.

      LF are not my thing, but... How are the quality of these LF? Once adults, will these be the shorter or longer finned versions?

      Quality seems nice on the whole. I am not sure on the final length of the fin.

      Decisions, decisions.
      Still learning as I go but y'all can call me Marilyn
