Hi guys, I wanted to share with you the evolution of my koromo (50cm 3sai Maruju). I'm wondering if it's turning into a goshiki ? Whatsoever still a cool fish but I recently saw a video of the big female budo koromo oyagoi at maruju koi farm and it's strange because it has goshiki reticulation... My koromo was notorize as a VHQ Ai koromo and from this offspring and now it is turning exactly like this koi : it's becoming a budo with some goshiki pattern ; It's the same for her other sisters that I saw at the original importer. Why did the breeder sell these babies as VHQ Ai koromo (expensive), in addition it's not a pure bloodline?
Here are some picture you can see many scales getting a blue hue and shadow markings. We don't see it on the photo but the reticulation over the red is pretty good for a budo and the pattern is perfecly balanced.
