Bought this Local bred Kohaku from Collin in Pretoria a year ago. It is developing quite nicely for a local bred. Now 35 cm



Pitty about the red in the tail and dorsal fin. What is your views?

By the way, welcome to the forum Collin.

I also bought two Kohaku's from Colin at last years show. One is a Torazo Kohaku and the other a Skakuza Kohaku. (Not sure how to spell this )

I think it is a bueatifull koi. Yes it might not have all the show qualities that are required but the skin, shape and colour qualities are really good. It could do with more white towards the front but other than that it is bueatifull koi

My Skakuza was roughly 25cm when i bought it and the last time i measured it it was 53cm. I have never seen koi grow this fast - amazing. The torazo koahku was 20cm when i bought it and i estimate it about 30cm at the moment.

Hi Paul

Thank you! As I said to the day on the farm the red might pull back over some time as the koi grow. You could see some examples of it in the Kokugyo Vol 2

Hi Wayne

The spelling is Sakuma post some photos of it lets see it and then discuss it here.
