Re: Ojiya/Hiroshima/Isawa Bound PSKoi - Spring 2018

Thanks for sharing the photos.

These are some very high quality young koi. My impression that they are judged mainly on patterns when this young has been shattered. The bodies are exceptionally strong. Only in Japan can you see so many great fish under the same roof.

Re: Taniguchi Sanke

M,

:-BD I still have the image of your fish in my head from two years ago. The skin, body and beni did not have the typical looks but I guess that was a very good thing. The sanke has really turned out well.

Re: Pink or not Pink

Keep in mind that pink beni does not automatically mean high quality beni.

Re: Pink or not Pink

I don't think I'll know what pink beni is until I save my pennies and buy one already identified as pink. Of the three prior, I'm not seeing anything in the last two. I chickened out of that INC hunt and went for a tancho (#13) lol. I didn't select this one because I thought it had pink beni, but I...

Re: Pink or not Pink

Here are photos of a pink beni sanke from PSKoi 2013 ikeage. From not so obvious to full blown pink beni. The tosai fish had unusual transparent copper color beni tone. I don't think digital photos can be trusted to represent color faithfully. Camera makers tune their gears to over exaggerate red an...

Re: Pink or not Pink

It's from last year at this time and yes, it's sold. ;) http://pskoi.com/forums/download/file.php?id=3299 In the group picture, the pink beni fish stood out. The beni and skin are more translucent. To me, pink b...

Thank you, it has been a fun, tiring trip and now I need to get back to work on the facility.

Re: Pink or not Pink

As the fish matured in the next few months, the pink beni became obvious. Unfortunately, beni on this one wasn't stable so it didn't last.

Re: Pink or not Pink

Here is a INC tosai pink beni I bought. Obviously, the beni had turned red at this stage. The beni wasn't obviously translucent. Instead, it looked smooth and metalic.

Re: Pink or not Pink

The reason I said I didn't think any of them are Pink Beni as I went over these with Toshi Sakai after I was asked to do so. He said he didn't know if any of them were but it doesn't look like it at this point. I told him that I thought, from past experience, the ones that turned out "Pink&quo...
