very nice, looks like a female and looks like a nice body too.

I would like to see the brown strengthen on the sides just above the lateral line leaving the dorsal passage grey, especially with that brown on the snout.

I think she's very nice

Hi Joe, I am glad you finally found an Ochiba.

Nice one with the typical required autum leaves and a good net pattern.

I personally like the chocolate brown Ochiba's more but the mustard colour is also nice.

Well done.

Ochiba's are one of my favorite varieties as they are tame, grow fast and is something different.

One of my favorite fish in my pond is this 50 cm Ginrin Ochiba:

Very nice Joe, also one of my favourite Koi, just happen to see a stunner at Robert Wagner's place today with the dark brown markings and stunning pattern, she has my name on it.
