    Hi All
    I have put some pics of all the fish in my new pond up for you to look at.
    I bought each of these fish because i liked something about them.
    In the purist,s eyes some may be of poor quailty but i dont care i like them.

    What i would like to ask though is can someone tell me what type they are as i dont really know
    Its more out of curiosity really

    many thanks fellow koi keepers

    devotion to one's koi is not to be under appreciated!

    My I congratulate you for your selection of a blue koi! The last one is shusui,
    the first douitsu koi color variety ever! and the only koi (so Far) to claim tokyo as it's place of origin. I'm still hopeful to find mine. Thinking some time in may!

    Congratulation, most of them are nice .I might be wrong but I would call them in order: Doitsu Hariwake, Ki Bekko, Cream Ogon, Ginsui, Kohaku, Kinki Utsuri and the nice blue Shusui. (maybe some specialists will correct me)

    But most of them will change and some of them will even change the name.
    The first koļ I receive for father's day was a nice girin yamabuki ogon (yellow metalic), a month later he turn girin kinki utsuri ( orange with black spot) and now he is quiete girin kinhi utsuri (red with black spots). I was hoping that he will change each year but I think trhat now he will stay like that.
    Take some picture it's very funny to see them changing.

    I'm thinking the first three are: Doitsu Hariwake, Hi Bekko, Chagoi and the fourth is a yamabuki and the fifth might be a Doitsu Gin Matsuba (although Ginsui is a nice description too) but otherwise agree with macro.

    Doitsu Hariwake, Aka Bekko, Chagoi, Yamabuki, Kikokuryu

    Kohaku, (not utsuri)?, Shusui

    Philip has the right name for the second fish; Aka Bekko.

    Both Hi and Aka mean red but Aka is typically used for the Bekko designation while Hi is used for Utsuri. I dunno why.

    Wouldn't the one between the Kohaku and Shusui be an Aka Sanke?

    Could be, Steve. The photo may be showing some metallic shine on the pecs, so I can't say.
