    Koi shape?

    three years ago me and my dad built a water garden. we recently rebuilt it into a 6,000 gallon koi pond. now we are wanting to buy some better koi. i was wondering what the ideal body shape for a koi is and how do you pick good body shape when buying smaller koi?

    Small koi are very hard to predict.

    You should make sure that all fins and eyes are there and in good shape, wide head just before pec fins, thick tail tube.

    There is much more that goes into buying a good fish like skin quality, depth of color, pattern, etc. Buying a small koi is very hard.
