Hi Renrew,

There is something wrong with this fish, I think it has some internal problems, the body is far to bloated for sush a small koi.
Where did you buy it from ?

Hi jaco,

Thanks for the reply i was also concerned about the body size after i bought it, it was from a pet shop i.e why i thought it wouldn't be a good fish. WI have noticed that the fish tends to sit at the bottom of the pond and does not swim around as much as the other koi I have. Could something be wrong with its swim bladder?

Hi Werner,

Ek dink die koi is besig om te vrek, moet asb nooit weer vis koop by 'n petshop nie.
Waar bly jy ?

I'm wondering if it's not more a shiro muji than a platinum ogon??

Hi nee ek sal nie weer daai fout maak nie, ek bly hier in pretoria. Waar kan ek koi kry om mee te begin wat my nie dusiende rande sal kos nie maar ook nie sal vrek en so an nie? Ek sal graag kohakus wil aanhou.

Thanks for the reply cliff.

I did give them a call today but there was no awnser. I would just like to know if the cheaper fish they sell still come sfrom a good bloodline? I would prefer to grow the koi from about 5cm to se how they develop and so forth.

This is possibly a fish from last year's spawn and never grew because it was probably kept in a fish tank or small container. Then you often get bloated fish like this one.

This is a low quality Ogon with very little metallic and will probably become dirty as time goes by.
