    Any chance this could be a female ?

    A Nisai Yamabuki that I got at Hirashin. Around 16". I got two of them, and this one is way more agressive eater.

    Yes I was aware of that. I am also treating it for a ulcer on the tail. We will be giving it Anti-biotics on monday.

    I just got it in late January, it and a few of the other koi are still recovering.

    Looks like it could turn completely white. But, I think looks male, narrow shoulders....
    The world sleeps as the chance to learn something new passes.

    Its inside for the winter (artificial light). So hopefully it will darken back up once it goes outside this summer.

    Here's a picture from when I bought it in Japan.

    Looks like a nice bunch of koi, the center one looks as if it was producing some fukerin ( whitish outline on the scale) they are pretty koi!
