      Ethan25's 2008 West Coast Ikeage Showa

      11.5 Inch female, Matsunosuke blood

      Can't wait to see it come out of the mud (even though I can't BE there for it...)

      Thanks for the great opportunity!

      Ethan - it would be interesting for you to photoshop your koi to see what you hope it becomes in the next few years. I would but I don't know enough about Matsunosuke sumi. I see some on the gill plate and think it will develop on the head. But as far as the rest of the body

      Com' on give us your arstistic rendition!

      this fish is going to be big. I love sakai fish.

      the beni around the nose (closest to the mouth) and on the shoulders rounded up a little, I think. it does make it look better. everything else remain the same - a good indication of a strong beni. congrats!

      I did notice the nose. I wasn't huge on that sharp turn that was one it, but it did round out! Good eye steve! I hope it goes big. It;ll have the chance to as I plan to leave it there for another year of grow out.

      Notice that her head is widening as well. This is going to be an impressive body.

      Smaller Koi are sometimes hard to judge. Once they start to broaden out you can get a better indication of confirmation, but isn't that part of the fun.

      She seems pretty deep already too, Russell. I saw this picture, and I think it is her as well.

      Yes, it is her. As soon as I saw it I called out " This is Ethan's Showa" and had to take a good look at it. I was very pleased with the results.
