    some good growth as well, it female or male?
    I got my ochiba from queni about 4 years ago 65cm last year, not massive growth but a male from yamazaki,
    the beni had started to fade but has come back a bit last year with the help of saki colour food.

    It says it's female on the card so I just go with that she is think she will be a big fish she looks small as her body is deep and wide hope the scales definition stays

    You can see the colour in your fish coming back it is amazing the difference a food makes its got a nice pattern to your fish dave nice and even

    Is it Maruyama?

    Keep looking at your matsuba and I think it would look a lot better in my pond Whitey

    Wow. Some really nice fish! And some great growth.

    I love the doitsu Karashi, red Karashi and the Aka Matsuba in particular.

    Thanks twns I think young fish good food and bit of heat and keeping the water as good as possible all contribute to the growth in now need to get shut of at least 2 fish was going to do a grow on tank with an ibc I have but have decided it would be better converted to a big moving bed of k1 and I'm planning on replacing my 600 jbl shower with a 1m one to fit more media to try and aid more growth
