    Growth Development of Marugen Showa Koi Fish In Marugen Koi Farm's Mud Pond Facility In Singapore

    Marugen Koi Farm is pleased to showcase the growth development of another Marugen Showa, raised in our mud pond facility in Singapore. The comparison is made between a picture taken when the showa was only 3 months old, and a recent video clip taken when the same koi fish is now about 6 months old.

    At first glance, the 3 months old Marugen Showa (as per picture showcase below) may not appeal to many. But if one look carefully, she actually has a lovely side in her; a basic and simple 3-steps kohaku pattern on white shiroji skin, which is well-balanced by underlying sumi (sumi hidden under the white shiroji skin). What matters now is if the underlying sumi will surface from under her white skin, to make her a more complete showa!

    Please enjoy the video clip of the same Marugen Showa, now at 6 months old.

    Within a short period of 3 months, her underlying sumi is starting to surface prominently; which helps to provide a simple yet attractive uniformed-pattern of thick red beni, developing black sumi and snow white shiroji. Without doubt, this Marugen Showa is beginning to blossom into a very high quality and beautiful young showa Tategoi. A classic example of an "ugly duckling" developing into a "graceful and beautiful swan". With proper grooming, she definitely has a very bright future ahead of her.

    This Marugen Showa is currently being groomed in our Marugen Koi Farm's mud pond; where minerals and nutrients that are found naturally in the mud pond, act as essential health supplements for kois to grow healthy and develop better.

    I thought Tsubo Sumi is only meant for Sanke i.e. a white based Koi, and this is a Showa which is a black based koi..........

    Cheers Bro........... :)

    Hi Bro Shukri,

    Yes, you are right indeed. I did some research and realized my understanding of the exact meaning for "Tsubo Sumi" is incorrect.

    I shouldn't have used "Tsubo Sumi" on Showas, as this term should be used solely for Sankes, to describe sanke sumi on white skin.

    Thanks for highlighting.

    Cheers... =)
