    Look at this koi

    Sorry my pictures are bad. This is my neighbors fish. I thought you might enjoy seeing her. One of the nicest koi I have ever seen. She was bred in Israel and is about 30 to 36 inches, relaay big. What kind is she.

    Same here Ki Matsuba, the head is really clean but the body is a bit too fat or she is carrying eggs. Overall a nice fish.

    What kind is she.
    She is carrying eggs... She looks too round at the sides not to be... She is also a yamabuki ogon....

    I have one that looks near identical.... same coloration....

    I could be wrong... The first pic does appear as a Ki (yellow) matsuba.... But,the second pic appears yamabuki... that was the first thing that I thought when I saw it....

    it looks more "gold" than "yellow" to me... so I would say "Kin Matsuba" instead.

    I tend to go with matsuba also, has the "pinecone" look.
