      I do not have this koi in my possession yet. Coming next week. I only have the dealer pic. Taniguchi Showa 6 inches. Let me know what you think. Thanks.

      the beni looks like a toss up, but the yellow/dark skin on the face peeks my interest. I have noticed many koi that look like this end up with thick brilliant skin. This is a fish I could see myself buying for the right price. Also, the head shape and size are very appealing. Only time will tell. Speculation on tosai is always a mixture of what you can see clouded by the bias of hope.

      Thanks for your critique. I agree with your assessment. I bought this fish because of the decent body conformation, and I like the pattern. Hopefully, you are right about the skin. This is a picture from December, so I expect it to be about double in size once I receive it next week. I'll post an updated pic sometime next week. Fingers crossed.
