    Opinion on this Kohaku

    Please give us an opinion on this Kohaku (and don't hold back). It's a young 3 yr old Torazo that we bought in November. It's about 23" long and it is a female. This is a joint venture between myself and my sister.

    Marc, got a bigger pic of the kohak so we can see the depth of Hi and body structure?

    Check your PM if you need help with that. I can resize and post it.

    I think it's a beautiful Koi. I wish I had a sister that would go halves with me on a name brand Asagi! All I got was a brother who defines my effort to keep koi as digging a hole in the ground and then start throwing money into it until you fill it up!

    the fish has a way to go to finish. The sashi still has quite a bit of depth to it!

    keep it well.....

    I like the quality of this Kohak. Color is deep and shiro is nice. You can tell it has good skeleton. Sashi needs to be cleaned up but its only 3 years old so it has lots of time. Looks like it could use some shoulders as well. But like I said you can acheive this by good koi keeping.

    Conformation is good if we start at the head first, the head is nice and wide. The shoulders need some work, but I think they will come up during the summer growing. The tail joint is a bit weak too, but should thicken up with feeding. Shiroji is nice from nose to tail, very silky white. Beni looks thick . Sashi no problem, one or two scales deep in some places is good but should clean up when the fish gets bigger. Pattern is very nice and balance, some people might say the odome is short but the way the pattern breaks up into smaller pieces makes it interesting.

    Your Kohak looks to be male from my eyes, but I could be wrong. I like the Kohak, with good feeding it has alot of future behind it. Nice buy!!!!
    The world sleeps as the chance to learn something new passes.
