    It's what is affectionately refered to as a "pond mutt"...a koi of uncertain variety. It appears to have a metallic sheen to it, so it could be a poor example of a kujaku.

    I thought so, Thanks. It is a very beautiful looking fish in the sunlight almost like the colors were spray painted in layers.

    I pretty much agree (with the mutt part), but it looks more like it wishes it was Shochikobai than Kujaku to me. Really tough to say from that picture.
