Hi

I would like some help identifying what variety the below Koi would be clasified under. I bred this one a while ago and I think it's a beatufil fish!

Hi,
The fish is a splendid Hikari-moyomono, It's body shines with platinum, which makes this brown fish bright.
The platinum shine on the back and fins, and detract enough to judge this a fine Hikarimono.
Further, the brown color is elegant, and the fine Doitsu scales are neatly aligned. The pectoral fin with brown stripes makes this fish outstanding.

I would call it a Platinum Cha Doitsu, or maybe a Doitsu Platinum Ochiba Shigure?

Ek hou baie van die vis. Geluk!

According to me this is a metallic doitsu Ochiba Shigure which is called a Doitsu Kogane Ochiba Shigure.

Please look at the latest pic of this fish... I've noticed that the orange on the head is starting to go away. I love the blue on the fish, it's almost the same blue as the bowl.

Hou jy darem nog van die vis Pieter??
