    thanks mate
    she looked so tiny compared to the other fish when she first went in,
    but is nearly as big or bigger than some of the now gosai original fish in the pond.
    only difference has been the bigger pond and saki hikari food this year,

    Nice. Shiro looks like it has some more sumi to come too.

    thanks,
    there might be a little bit here and there, but most of it has developed i think.
    would have been nice to get a little more in the left side centre portion along side the dorsal, but i'm still very happy with the pattern.

    Ogata Goshiki Development.

    Didn't recognise it at purchase because it was skinny through lack of food, but looks like it might have been a poor choice bodyshape wise as the belly is getting bigger but still looks skinny at the back.




    Kuro is still getting darker, so here's another pic taken in the pond yesterday, estimated 42cm:

    Marusei Hi Utsuri

    June 2018 at 15cm and 115:





    Apologies for poor photo quality.

    June 2021 (Didn't note measurement as he was only out for a scrape, but I'd guess now a year later he's around 47cm. Was a bit skinny at time of photo and has a bit more body now).
