Re: [ikankoiku] My New Momotaro Nisai Sanke To Share
[In reply to]
Thank you for your comments & assessment of this sanke.
I would prefer if the is no sumi near the tail as the strong tail tube with snow white odome with be a strong area for this koi to show off
I'm not sure whether you noticed this. If you notice most of the sankes that win top/major prizes in Koi Shows have all three colors at the caudal peduncle area. Let me show you few case in example, pay attention to their caudal peduncle area:
All Japan Koi Show 2010, Superior Champion, Offspring of Big Rose
All Japan Koi Show 2010, Kokugyo 30bu, Kondo Koi Farm
All Japan Koi Show, Kokugyo 25bu, Sakai Fish Farm
Sakai Fish Farm Sanke, Shining Rose, one of the most if not the most expensive nisai during the October 2009 auction.
However I don't think that a sanke must have this to win prizes but I do believe that it is a very desirable trait to have.
