      I like the sumi on them, they both look to have interesting head patterns coming in too!

      Have to say your pics are better than the group pic. I like them both, I think I like Ying yang overall more. What I do like is the two together to see their comparison under the same conditions. IMO, the one you call Ying Yang has what appears to me to have the slight edge on skin quality, and the sumi is surfaced more like what Bill recommends. he quite often will point of the sumi on ones that he's picking for the sumi to get jet black when finished and they almost always have that look when I am talking Bill and Maureen. You picked up some nice choices. Hopefully others will be posting soon.

      They are an active pair here. They learned to eat from my hands pretty fast and when I cup my hand, one swims right up into it to eat.

      Jim your two showas are very nice .You chose a very nice fish with #41 i like the pattern in the head. I am sure will develop into a great looking koi. Post pictures of development in the future.

      Here is one month on #41. Still skinny, but he put on an inch and is now 7 inches.

      Interesting stuff going on with the sumi on both in just a month! I think a lot will disappear as they grow, resurfacing later for the finish

      It better come back, lol. I am sure it is in part due to drastic temp chanes from LA to FL and change in diet. Cool water can enhance the sumi. Time will tell though...

      #27 is doing good. Picked up 2 inches since purchase. Water issues have cleared up and the Sumi is starting to darken up again. Hopefully it will all come back and more over time. She is also developing a big hump at the shoulders, thinking too big for her size and hopefully she will grow into it.

      I'm curious as to how this one'll develop...it looks short and stumpy at the moment. Hopefully you can get it to stretch out a bit.

      Please keep us updated

      I couldn't get a decent photo of her today, but she is up to 10 inches. She has packed on 4 inches in the last three months since picking her up. Her shoulder area and hump continues to grow large, I am hoping this will equate to a large body once the rest of her catches up in growth.

      Maybe ask the breeder his opinion...

      Great idea. I shot Bill a message with some pics to see if he can give any insight with it being his blood line. Thanks.
