    Any potential in this young kohaku??

    This is a 6 inch kohaku bred by Blackwater Creek(I don't know the date of birth). The photo was taken indoors with a flash. I like the 3 step pattern. Because it is small...I am unsure if the beni will deepen and improve? It would be great to peak at 24+inches
    Just need some input here on wheather to keep or sell. Thanks!!

    This one is also from BWC. It is also 6 inches. I am definitely keeping this one to grow out. The beni is much deeper. But...could it be because this one is male and the other is female???

    I think when this koi's pattern rides up when it doubles in size, the pattern will look underwhelming. Might suggest it find a home for someone that just wants a pretty face

    Yep. Sell it.

    Photos of second one are too affected by digitizing to tell much. But, nice pattern.
