      [ATTACH] One showing measurement as best as possible

      *to assist in picture taking you can spin fish in bowl by using one hand on head and one towards rear of body or with both hands over head/eye area gently shake back and forth several times, this will disorient fish for a few seconds for a clean shot

      *something close to 400x600/600x400 pixals will be fine

      What is interesting to me is how some had the sumi get lighter...and some saw it deepen and tighten up. Many different types of conformation as well. It's really a study of how different conditions can affect our koi. In my pond, sumi always deepens and tightens up. But, waiting for underlying sumi to emerge...can take forever. So..I use this to guide my purchases. I try to find koi with sumi exactly where and how I like it...knowing it will stay that way. I don't buy ones with underlying sumi...as I know it may never come up. It's always good to study these things and draw conclusions for future purchases.
