Re: kobayashi showa update 2016-2020

I sexed them both male and the Showa is slightly longer than the tancho, 25 & 27” . My male Omosako SU is a year younger and slightly bigger so they have grown a little slower in my care but have remained pond favorites. It is a 32” bowl that is slightly flared at the bottom.

kobayashi showa update 2016-2020

Since Russ has a lot of nice showa tosai from Kobayashi, I thought I'd give an update on the two I got back in 2016. I apologize for the phone photos.

Re: Corona Virus scare

The problem with comparing this to the flu is we have whole season of flu data and this pandemic just started. The virus is contagious and much more virulent than the flu; so all things being equal; i.e. absent social distancing, the numbers would be much worse. I just want to be able to get to work...

Re: Tokyo/Ojiya/Hiroshima/Isawa Bound PSKoi Winter 2020

Funny you should mention that. Your wife isn’t the only one and a few people asked when I could stop because they didn’t have the strength to resist. I couldn't resist Sekiguchi showa #26. I didn't even have a showa on my list, but I am glad looking back as it will be an interesting one to watch. A...

Re: Tokyo/Ojiya/Hiroshima/Isawa Bound PSKoi Winter 2020

Trying to hold out for a sanke or tancho, but you’re making it hard. Really nice tosai so far. Will you be going back in April? I have a few Pearl GR Tancho Sanke to post but if you want Torazo Tancho then I will be going back in late March probably. I'll try to keep watching. Not real we'd to spec...
