    Probably Kikokaryu.

    The Showa is nice but probably male since it looks to be finished.

    I think Doitsu Kujaku and Regular Kujaku.

    Showa is finished and show ready.

    so much of breeding is learning with known varieties and doing a little crossing back and forth. Interesting Sandy saw the black in the Pec fins and body and knew there had to be some Kuro variety in it's base and the next post sees the Kujacku in the Koi and calls it like he sees it.

    I'd be willing to bet it has some of both.

    So while we might not be able to put a name to it , I think we'd all agree it would go into a show as doutsu or Hikari patterned.

    As a general rule Koi that finish this small are usually males that finish fast and fade early. That is not a universal truth, but in general it seems to work out that way. Unfinished young Koi don't imply sex very well as males can take several years if the quality traits are there.

    Take it from us Alvin, you will NEVER stop learning. Even those who have been in this hobby for decades are still growing and learning constantly. That's part of the challenge
