    few new uns

    I got these a few weeks ago from Queni, what do you think ?

    They have grown a few cm since I got them, I love a nice ochiba pattern.

    I like these.

    Had a couple of hours spare so ended up going to view today.... and bought this one:

    20cm, bred by Katsumi

    Gatwick Koi had a couple of stunning ones from Kase and I fell in love with one of them but sadly missed out as it sold instantly. At 5% of the price I'm happy to settle with this one and see how it grows.

    Thanks familyman.

    In all honesty I know next to nothing about these and there's very limited information online about what to look for / categorising Ochibas, and even less about Doitsu Metallic Ochibas.

    So, on the basis the Ochiba pattern is supposed to represent fallen autumn leaves on water, I would say your selection achieves that representation.

    My Metallic with the platinum silver/grey body looks somewhat more like fallen autumn leaves on the pavement, and being from the City that will do for me!

    How are the Ochibas growing David?

    Hi, thanks for asking, they are doing really well, I don't know how big they are now but definitely much bigger than they were in the pics at the start of the thread.

    I will bowl them up at the end of the growing season and have a measure up.

    Dave B
