Presumed dead but very much alive

This entry is part 4 of 6 in the series 3rd European Shinkokai Koi Show 2013

She’s back… and better than ever before! At first I was put on the wrong track and by observing this “one meter plus specimen”. My first thoughts were that the Scandinavian hobbyist Thorsten Nagelsky had won his next Jumbo Champion title with his Mukashi ogon. This was not the case and yet I have met this mighty Mukashi Ogon before?!

 

“The fish was taken out of the show and rumours about the fish being lifeless were going around”

In Appeltern (Netherlands) that time, three years back in 2010, was the showground where the colossus from Koicenter Tiel made a unfortunate tilt in her show vat. The temperature at that time lead to serious proportions for her;The fish was taken out of the show and rumours about the fish being lifeless were going around. Now, the stream of rumours have been permanently ended now. The magisterial Mukashi swims around here in blazing healthiness. Her nose is a little bit short, but hey. Who cares, the animal is almost 105cm! The shine and her scales are still properly and simply looks beautiful. Take a look at the pictures below how she looked that time on the Koi Show. Undisputed a recovery that goes further than only that. What a animal is it now; This Koi says ‘blob’ instead of ‘blup’.. Joachim Luisman may be proud about the care that is granted for his Koi to bring it to where it is now. Joachim is very thankful for the adequate care that has taken place for the Mukashi on the show that time and it felt good to bring the Koi here for a comeback.
