The Tancho Showa:

If you would like to have your Tancho Showa considered for featuring here please email with a photo.

 The Tancho Showa is a truly stunning Koi variety that falls under the Tancho classification of Koi and is a favourite type of many thousands of enthusiasts, a personal favourite of mine too. Both the Tancho Sanke and Tancho Showa are very close in appearance, both equally desirable and equally cherished by Koi enthusiasts all over the world. A majestic Tancho Showa cruising the depths is a joyous spectacle for any Koi lover, to have one's own is a subject of pride. The Tancho Showa pictured below is a prime example of a high grade, show winning standard fish, I think a picture like this can paint a thousand words, so I will let you let you relish the moment.

The Tancho Showa.

This Beautiful example of this Koi type is one of the most awe inspiring examples I have ever seen, yes there are some beautiful Koi, many stunners but for overall presence and quality this Koi is rather special. This particular Tancho Showa displays a wonderful balance and depth of colour to the balanced markings almost painted upon a beautiful white base, perfectly harmonised with a lovely scale pattern. The balance of markings on the pectoral fins and Caudal fin is fantastic, it is almost as though a magician has gifted this fish with harmony and beauty. We then focus upon the Tancho marking itself, wonderful, deep and rich in colour, perfectly positioned between the eyes and ideal in shape. The Black markings encroach into the Tancho marking making this a fine ' Tancho Showa '.

This particular Fish photo is courtesy of a wonderful friend, the fish is product of one of the Japanese Koi Farm groups we are associated with. We thank you for allowing us to display and use this beautiful example of one of the very best of Japanese Tancho Showa Koi carp in the World.

The Tancho Showa Koi is very similar to the treasured Tancho Sanke but in regards the Tancho Sanke, the black markings or sumi do not intrude into the spot (see below). It is a tough one when deciding upon a favourite Tancho koi, please see TanchoSanke.com and TanchoKoicarp.com for more on the different types of Tancho Koi:
