    Lava Lamp is a pretty apt description. Generally speaking I like the overall look of it, but there is an area of concern on the head. I can't tell if it is just the photo or not, but there appears to be a bit of thinning/breakup of the beni on the face around the left nostril.

    the head pattern was a concern and it does look like the beni is doing something on the left but i love the body pattern.
    no i dont own the fish yet.may never will as it is in the states and im in uk.
    i have emailed dealer to see if this is possible but the cost of shipping may stop me buying.the fish is for sale at $700

    im with you on that one Darren - the body pattern is great and the skin looks good too.

    Am i right in thinking $700 is around the 400 mark?

    hi jimbokoi
    yes it would be around 400-430 then you would have shipping,not sure about vat.maybe it could happen via a dealer this end.so it could turn out to be an expensive fish.

    Can you imagine this Koi at 28" ? I'd think pretty cool to see swimming around in a pond .

    Lava Lamp is the perfect Name .

    hi
    bad news for me the dealer says due to regulations he cant export to UK.so one of you guys in the states could be the owner of this fish.
    its seems everyone likes her.maybe i should say which dealer has her
