I bought this beautiful male Showa koi from a spring collection this spring. The Showa was 8.66 in when I got him and now he’s about 14 in already. His colors are so deep an rich! The body shape is monstrous especially the hump behind the head. One of my favorite features of this koi is his baby blue eyes. Even though this 1 year old beauty is a gentle little giant most likely going to be the king of my pond.
