    Dainichi Super Monster Showa

    So I may of got a little obsessed with getting a Super Monster Dainichi Showa, the more you see them the more impressive and unique the bodies are, for anyone who's looked this year prices have been a little crazy to say the least (particularly for Tosai). Anyway finally got one, hopefully with the potential to reach a good size/body (37cm Tosai). In the end choosing one that isnt going to run to a few grand was difficult, The one you really want you just know will be crazily priced and probably end up in a pond somewhere in Asia. Hopefully this one will turn out decent enough mind, not cheap, but not crazy expensive either. Fingers crossed when more Sumi comes on head and right shoulder will be more balanced, plus im a sucker for an eye patch lol

    Its all a little confusing as im sure there's like super monster 1 2 and 3 etc. Im sure i read no 1 is 92 cms. In my mind im seeing her with a massive body and smashing the metre mark in no time . I still marvel at how they can get close to and over 40 cms as Tosai! Ill be dissapointed if she isnt 55 plus at Nissai

    If you watch this video: https://youtu.be/rYvDUxOaMdo you can see the size of them Dainichi fish. Don't think the super monster is on there but then it don't need to be when there is literally a pond full of 90cm fish!!

    Thats a lovely showa and as already mentioned, once the sumi comes through more it will improve even more so!

    I’ve watched that a few times…. Also the Dianichi project vids from Ricky, mud pond type growth seems perfectly achievable here in the U.K. https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rc...xoA5tcDYN0XqKJ

    Ive spotted a nice Mona Lisa one too, tempted…
