I pulled these three from my growing on pond. They have stunning Shiroji, very good skin quality and deep Hi, but a few demerits. Which one will you choose and why?

Hi,

If we call them (first photo - Left to Right) A, B, C, last photo D.

I would place them D, B, C & A

The body and color looks good, pattern unimportant.

The middle one on the top picture then the left hand one.

I always go for a kohaku with a white nose and the pattern on that one is pleasing.

Let me share what do i think:

Although looking at the photo is not a good way to judge a koi.

But,

I will pick D, if i am looking for kiwa.

Will pick A, if i am looking for body shape and good growth rate.

(I can't really see teh body shape of D and C, so this is why i pick A for body shape.)

And i will pick C, for nice head shape in the future. (When the koi grow big.)

As fa as pattern is concerned, I will go for B, D, C, A although it is difficult to chosse between B & D


B
Interesting pattern with nice flow through the body from front to back
Good menware
Well balanced

D
Good adome
Bit too heavy on the front but fairly well balanced
Will have a good balance between white and red when large

C
Scattered pattern which is not good
Hi might break up on the nose
Lack white head which I prefer

D
Hi extends to far onto the nose
Hi goes into the tail fin which is a large demerit to me
