      Fukazawa(Ofuchi) Sumi Zakura "VENOM"

      And finally here is an interesting Koi I saw at the recent "R's Collection 2018" event at Narita Koi Farms. This one is not mine nor do I know it's current whereabouts.
      It was labeled as a Sumi Zakura(charcoal cherry blossom) produced by Fukazawa Koi Farm(Ofuchi).

      One of the young employees was enthusiastically telling me how much it looks like Venom from the Spider-Man franchise. I couldn't agree with him more and indeed was a very cool looking fish. But being my first time hearing about this variety, I was hesitant on trying to acquire it as the asking price was approximately $2,500USD.

      It appears to have Matsukawabake/Beni Kumonryu blood so I'd be disappointed if Venom vanished in a season or two.

      Beni Kumonryu was my first thought. Cool fish, but I'd be concerned with the shifting pattern too. Must sell today!

      Since it has scales it could be Beni Matsukawabake but not Beni Kumonryu. Kumonryu are Doitsu Koi.
      people like to vehemently defend their purchases and find it incredulous that anything could be better
