      The skin of my Kobayashi SU looks fine in the pond but changes to this ugly dull gray color in the bowl. Vening is also there. He is another boy so the stress level might be higher. I am thinking about donating him to local ZNA auction.

      Donating this nice boy to ZNA. The main reason was that he is a nervous male in my pond. The skin, sumi and pattern look to have good potential.

      ill post mine here so people don't have to hunt to compare. I was going to move it and lost another larger koi to a tumor so kept it. Seems koi didn't respond. Likely will move it in the spring unless the sumi decides to surprise me

      here was the tosai pick from 2016, top tosai

      SU sumi can take a long time to develop. What is seen on tosai can be just a preview. It is not unusual for sumi to go down than takes another five years to resurface.

      My biggest gripe about SU is not its potentially long development time. It is relatively difficult to find a SU with strong body and conformation without paying an arm and leg.

      It seems easier to get a better Omosako, maybe that is just a numbers game.
