    Wow, that's rapid growth. Must have eaten all its siblings or something. Definitely looks more like dad.

    I will be keeping this one I am very fond of it. I will breed back to shusui someday. I would like to have show quality koi but a real pain in the *** and not too likely on my budget. Koi like this are more fun for me. I will go for fast large growth with metallic colors and ginrin dorsal scales. I was more excited when this tosai was younger it was a very nice ki but got more orange as it got older. I found it very interesting that doitsu is not recessive.

    The amazing growth continues! And heavy as well. I thought a couple of tobi out of my 2015 spawn were doing good to be 18", but this one dwarfs them. Looks like it may blow right past 30" in a couple of years.

    It definitely has ginrin on the scales. So I was initially thinking it was a ginrin shusui. But if the skin is metallic, it would be a ginrin doitsu kujaku instead. It is a little hard to tell from the overhead pictures, but the earlier pictures from when it was 15" on its side do appear to show some shine, especially on the head.
