    which one do you like best and why?

    Which of these kohakus do you like best and why?

    On the pictures they are both 41 cm
    They've been in the mud pond in Japan an they are now 59 cm (sorry I dont have new updated pictures)

    The first one is offspring of love queen. Can't remember the second.

    The pictures are from the auction, so sorry about the quality but hope you could comment on pattern etc?

    Thanks

    Personally i dont like either but if i 'had' to choose 1 it would be the 2 step, The yellow head would bother me less than the depth of the sashi on the other kohaku.

    I'm gonna guess that most will like the first one better for these reasons. It has the orange-ish beni vs the red beni. The pattern is a little messy on the second one and maybe goes back a little too far towards the tail. If you are thinking about buying either of them from photos and without seeing them in person I would ask for new photos of both. On the first one you really need a good pic with the pecs spread out and to see if the head is really that yellow.

    I will get new pictures in 2-3 weeks. then they will also be 59 cm vs 41 on the pictures. I just wanted a quick opinion before I look at them updated

    I aint no koi master or koi judge, but I would probably choose Kohak #1.....looks to be more of a stable fish.

    Kohaku #1

    I would pick the first Kohaku as stated previously the patter is more stable, the second one it seems to blur.

    I would wait for the new pictures to judge. The second Kohaku has some signs of stress especially those pecs. You may also see the beni has improved on both after some mudpond time.

    I would pick the first. The second has that purplish beni that I never feel is stable.

    Updates! Here are the two koi after mudpond.
    The 2 step is now 59 cm, the 3 step is 63 cm

    I Don't own any of these koi, but I'm thinking about the 2 step.

    What do you think?
