Hi all, please comment on my soragoi. I think its a male, but still has a nice body. Bought it from wild coast koi in east london. Its around 45cm in length.

I like it...Just a question...is the head yellowish brown?
It might be from chagoi spawn, sibling of ochibas...if it is...
Ochiba has the tendency to become darker with age...U never know might turn into one...

it is from an ochiba spawning, its ochiba markings come and go. Last year it develooped a very strange pattern where all the scales on its side, but not on top, developed a brown spot in the centre, then after a while it lost those markings.

I have a younger one from the same breeder, possibly same parents that I bought I bought for 10 bucks at the EL show, it was an ochiba, but tiny, thought I'd see how it turned out, it also turned into a soragoi, but not bad for the price! And this cheapie has turned out to be my most tame and calm koi, even tamer than my bigger older fish.
