Hi Muhammad!,
I remember U sold your Koi last year, to buy better ones. I can see some definite improvement...I like best the kimonryu...Kohaku not bad...
I can not figure out what Koi is No 2..
Nice gin shiro or bekko..
The rest look as if they are from the same batch I bought my Koi for sale: Pet master and loolilocks...
I am sure U are not planning to show this Koi but just enjoy them. I know U will a lot.
I saw one huge Koi in Neville's pond...Hard to say what variety. Just gray doitsu koi. By my O my! It looked fantastic...He even took it to the show...and I think it won something...
The main reason I try to chose some what show quality Koi is because, they look better when older.
Darling remember with Koi: U get what U pay for...Dont expect miracles (like me) from cheap Koi....better try to win the lottery.
The last Koi reminds me a bit of the one U sold last year.
Enjoy your babies!

Hi Muhammad
Kohaku no1 will turn out a nice pond Kohaku, male it looks like.
No2 look like rouge scale Shusui. This fish you can replace. It will spoil your collection eventually.
The Doitsu Shiro no3 may turn out very nice, but looks like it might turn Kumonryu.
Kumonryu no4 you can replace
The little ones in picture no5 you can keep the Ogon, the middle left looks like a Doitsu Kujaku you can keep along with the little Kikusui under the Ogon.
Photo 6 was a nice Doitsu Sanke but I'm afraid the hi on this fish are going, if the hi stay this fish can turn out nice.
Photo 7 the Ogon not to bad and you can keep.
The Hi utsuri can turn out a nice fish later but the sumi tell me it will be a little spotty. Will still be a great pond fish.
This is just my opinion and I hope this will help. Try to buy fish from a reputable dealer next time, like Neli said, with koi u get what you pay for.
Don't try and buy a lot of fish at once but maybe one or two of good quality and bloodlines. This way you will have a stunning collection in a short time and not a over stocked pond full of nice fish that doesn't grow. Very Happy
Hang on, your getting there bounce bounce

Tommy,
I was scared to criticize...Last year I did and Muhammad went and sold all his Koi...I felt bad for a long time after that.
Maybe he just wants colorful fish for the pond>
Muhammad,
What type of fish do U want to keep? Pond or show???Let as know since our comments will depend on that.
How big is your pond?
As far as I know, U are a young man...

I think you're mistaken Neli, i didn sell my fish. Althou i recently found out that Costa lives just a stone throw away from me, and after visiting him a couple of times i felt like selling everything and getting some proper fish from him. My pond is less than a year old. When i just built it i started off buying expensive fish and still don't know the cause but lost almost all of them. So now I'm taking it bit slower till i learn enough to take good care of them. Built the pond myself, small pond 10000lt. Will post the pics soon

Hi Muhammad,

Your fish are looking good, keep up the good work, as I told you look after your water, and your water will look after your fish. Nice to see how you love your fish.
Looking forward to seeing your setup.

Regards,
Costa.
