    Koi Newbie!

    Hi Everyone,
    I have a few koi which I am sure are water garden/pond variety, although I am having fun trying to figure out what kinds they are. My golden yellow one is named Brightly and I think he's a Ki Matsuba. He/she is getting whiskers! I also think there is a Shiro Bekko (Bwain) and Taisho Sanke (Speckles). Also you may or may not be able to see Blanca, she's the smallest and I think a Platinum Ogon. Brightly and Speckles are about a year and a half, and the other two are about a year-maybe a little less. I'm really enjoying this- they all made it through a very cold winter, I was so happy to see them emerge again!

    Thanks for the welcome, KK! Yes Brightly is so pretty.... I was wondering if Butterfly was a possibility... so are there butterfly "versions" of the various types of koi, or is it the other way 'round? (i.e., butterflies have their own types). I need to do more research...!
