      Scarlett - Kohaku

      I had a thread when she was purchased, and Mike gave me some good info on her and another. I would like to expand on that and get more specific. These photos are from last year at purchase & delivery. I will not be bowling her for a long while.

      She has grown a good 3-4 inches by my estimation, with her beni staying the same depth through out

      And this is a Richard SJKoi fish of course.

      Input please.

      14" at purchase (2nd year I believe)

      this is a great example of what Richard is capable of! She's amaazing! The shiroji is brilliant, the body is very thick, yet long. I like the color of the beni. Not too dark yet, has a ways to finish IMO. Kiwa is good. Sheen is amazing of course, like most of his high end koi.


      VERY nice purchase. I'd have gotten her in an instant.

      Note I edited to add purchase size of 14" - release into pond 5 months later she was 17"

      She appears as large as 21" in comparison to koi measured last year... which is a crap shoot

      True. Mike had said something about when she is big that she could do well.

      I feel, that if her quality continues & she gets the size needed to carry it, that she will do well.

      Hence this thread, to get more input, or to see if Im completely off.

      I think if you can grow her to 32 + inches and keep the skin quality pristine .. ya got a winner .

      you have a very nice fish Prem is right on. This fish has it all, the sheen, the sharp kiwa, the body, the beni, the shiroji...all very nice. I think I will buy me a Richard fish someday...when I can afford it

      So I have to have her GINORMOUS in order for her to not be over looked by the judges. I get that.

      I guess I hoped that her other qualities, that may be lost on a 3-4 step would give her a chance. lol

      Melissa....that is a very nice fish and the pattern is not going to keep her from being a contender....only if another fish with an equally nice package of confirmation...skin...beni and shiroji is there to compete at the same time...then pattern is the tie breaker..i am not a judge and i haven't shown any fish yet but that is my opinion for what it is worth....good luck with her....she is beautiful
