    Shusui ?

    Hi everyone,

    I have a friend who is getting rid of all of her kois and the pond itself there are two koi's that I'm looking to purchase from her. one i'm postive of what it is and the other koi is the one I'm having problem identify what the name of it.. It kinda reminds me of Shusui (Shoo-Soo-Ee) the only problem is instead of the red or orange, it has yellow marketings where the red is supose to be. Can there be a yellow version Shusui ? Blackwater creek website has the same koi that I'm talking about I'm just wondering if about the coloring and markings. I pick them up later on this week. so right now I dont have pictures to show just yet. If anyone has a picture of there Shusui to show that would be great to see and to compair.

    thanks

    A yellow Shusui with well-aligned dorsal scales is a rather rare creature many would love to have. I'll be surprised if your new koi is a good example, simply because they are so rare. I'll look forward to seeing a photo and hope you get one that makes you happy.

    Could it be a midorigoi rather than a shushui that your thinking of?

    Thanks MikeM: Well I'm waiting for her to give me a ring. to come pick them up, Once I have picked them up before I release them in the holding pen I will take pictures of the new female's that I bought from my friend.

    YES JNorth : But she has a lighter head an cleaner scales which looks like armor, then the yellow ink spots and white underbelly.. Almost like yours but she has more white then yellow then your does. Once I have picked her up I'll take pictures to show.
