      Isa Showa nisai female 55cm

      As mentioned before, I'm going to try to make a point of posting progress photos of my fish as I slowly upgrade from pond-grade to higher quality fish.

      This is a female Kindai-style Showa from Isa. Currently 55cm and Nisai and still in Japan atm. Any thoughts welcome. I like the body and the whiteness of the skin. We'll see what happens with the sumi.

      Pardon the relatively low quality video. I'll add a higher quality video when I'm able:

      Based on the picture and please pardon me since I don't judge nor understand the standards but I really like the white on that koi even thow is a black base koi it tells me how good quality really stands out the beni looks right where it should be at this stage and the black even though it's still got a long way to go it's even all around body I like what I see don't really understand showa bodies that much but I like it the only area some could call a distraction could be on the lips with the kuchibeni but it goes to show that creation can also have mishaps but I really like that koi. Good luck with her and keep us updated with her progress as you see fit.

      Isa has made a lot of progress in the past few years. This fish is another example of a good Isa showa. The skin is high quality not only because of its white color. The creamy/transparent head and glowing shiroji confirmed the assessment. The beni, which often is the Achilles heel for showa, is exceptionally strong and thick on this fish. I like the way the sumi is struggling to surface. Another sign of the good skin.

      This is not a cheap fish.
