    Was there today with Steve giving a hand,boy they were heavy.

    This was the only one I got as Steve wanted them all !!!!!
    He got some lovely koi from Ian and all home safely,must be sad for Ian packing up and i wish him all the best in his travels and hope he will keep in touch.

    Any ideas what this koi is?

    Lovely Koi Stuffy, and John, that's right up my street.

    Don't think its a Doitsu Kujaku though, because a Doitsu Kujaku I think is a Shusui.

    Throwing guesses around now, but it definitely has Hariwake features, so I first thought Kikusui but probably more likely to be a Doitsu Yamato-nishiki.

    Like one of these:

    On John's koi it has some black within the red and a Sanke stripe on the pec, hence my thinking it is a yamato nishiki, whereas the kujaku will only have black on the doitsu scales and nowhere else.

    Could be either but could be neither!

    All are nice stuffy.

    You're not wasting any time stocking up then New additions.


    Any idea who the Showa breeder is?
    Shape looks similar to one of mine from Takahashi.

    How big are the bigguns stuffy?

    I've never bought a big koi before, always wanted to grow them myself, but it takes so long I'm tempted to buy one New additions

    I can’t remember the breeder sorry. The larger ones are around 24 inches. All grown from 6-8 inch tiddlers !. It’s great buying small and watching them grow.
