thanks Kobus, can only hope you are correct.

The hi is a much deeper red that the others, and the white whiter....just hope it is indeed female

Will know in a few months afro

Cliff, the color qualities are there for me in this koi but it does not speak to me at all. I dont like the type of pectoral fin shape, its too big and the pattern is too sparse. I am 100% sure this is a male.

Nice white, good quality colours, kiwa looks good but the sashi needs some more development, still dont like its pecs. The lopsided head marking is a bit of a distraction.

Love it, very nice development.

Well done. That white is superb, nicely balanced and strong Hi with good body on top of it.

Depending on the size and age it could still turn out to be female but right now it looks male.

Hi Cliff, still think its male, but I might be far from right LOL. This fish really developed very nice. Any update photos? Shocked
