    55cm Gin Matsuba For Sale

    Hi,

    I've decided to offer up my Gin Matsuba to a new home to make room for some new tiddlers to grow on.

    He's a strong healthy male measuring an estimated 55-56cm - I didn't want to bowl just to measure but obviously can do if required.

    I bought him from another forum member who couldn't remember the breeder. This fella was big into the show scene and had rosettes/prizes this koi had won at young koi shows.

    There's a small scar on the head where he jumped and hit the mesh covers the day after I bought him! The head is very clean with no patches of black/Sumi which demonstrates the quality as rarely do they get to this age and remain clean.

    He has a couple of black scales that don't bother me but could obviously be removed if the buyer so inclined.

    Age wise I've had him since November/December 2018 and he was about 4 years old at that time so I'd guess this is his 8th year.

    There were behavioural issues in the pond at the end of May and as part of the investigation process I scraped every koi in the pond with 2-3 slides per fish and found absolutely no parasites so I'd be confident he is clean.

    To avoid unnecessary bowling here's a video of him going about the pond, but I can bowl if a serious buyer requests so. He will hand feed as long as he's got the security of other friendly fish around him.

    Bargain Price: 130

    Must go to someone with the knowledge and filtration to keep him alive and healthy for many more years to come.

    Please PM and include your phone number for me to reply to as trying to keep available space in the tiny inbox on here is a nightmare!

    Collection from Kent.

    Cheers.

    Still preferring not to net and bowl him until I really have to, and obviously he'll look even better in a blue bowl but regardless, here's a couple of photos in the pond today:
