    Tanks for the swift and god responses from both off you

    Who long is it Tosai?

    0-24 months?

    12-24monts?

    We would call a Nishikigoi at 26 months Nissai is this the right way of interpretation?

    After hatching and making through the period of being fry, koi younger than 12 months are referred to as tosai.

    After 1 full year of life, they are called nisai. People here will refer to tosai that have overwintered and coming upon their first birthday in the springtime as "ake-nisai".
