While do some other catching, managed to net this over the weekend.

This fish started out as orange / white and black, and I have had it since November last year. It has grown considerably and is now around 35cm long.

The amazing part is all the orange is disappearing, still a few small marks on the belly, what do you think?

Paul mentioned the other day that red can dissappear very quick on doits kois. Your koi looks very healthy.

Difficult to see if it is really metallic, and if metallic, it appears to be quite a dull metallic.

If not metallic, it is rather a beni kumonryu.
