      Nicely balanced panterns on both. Showa is lacking Motoguro which may not be a bad thing but I think would have enhanced it's appleal a little. Beni, Sumi and shiroji all look very nice.

      I really enjoy that double mask Kohaku it's really eye apealling to me but to your Showa is your description indicating the breeder (Gonjiro)? Thanks in advance My apologies for not breaking down the koi but my knowledge is not there yet

      I always feel stupid to post here, because I cant offer serious critique, but will give my thoughts.

      They are both really nice; especially compared to what we have. I like the skin and shiroji on the kohaku and it appears to have a better body at this point. I am assuming it is quite a bit larger fish. On the showa, it appears that it does have motoguru, but I find the beni/hi (not sure the correct term) on the tail is distracting. In my experience color on the tail does not go away. If the sumi comes in near the end there, maybe it over powers the red. The colors sure are crisp and sharp. I sure would like to watch both develop, but feel the kohaku has more potential.

      There is motoguro on the showa but it is irrelevant in this case since the sumi quality is obviously good already.
