    Gotta agree with Loco... Head not clean color is pretty ok but just doesnt pop. Maybe just photo. I'd like to see a bit more uniform in color of fins. But Scalation catches the eye no doubt. The being chagoi don't have to worry about it growing. I think in single color koi you gotta be very picky as its only single color. Looking for a good sheen for it to come out and seperate amongnst the rest.


    With that said on the color or head being not clean. Many factors an lead to that and one is the koi could be stressed and or water not very clean. Chagoi tend to change color when water not good.

    The color on the head abit thin, might clean up...scale reticulation is clean, wishing the motoguro was alot cleaner on fins. Overall, nice Chagoi...All these faults would be over looked if the fish was over 40" .

    Ditto I agree with the other post. what is it that I am seeing on the left shoulder? Is it discoloration or a healing injury? Or is it just my bad eyes?

    It looks like a 'young' chagoi to me, if so the head will clean up fine. You are looking through the skin. That's fine for a tosai.
    It needs plenty of food to put some weight on.
    I agree with Nancy, looks like a mark on the left shoulder.

    Brutuscz, who is the breeder of the Chagoi?

    The thing is you'll have fun with the fish, watching it grow. I buy my Chagois as tosai and watch them grow.

    I look for good conformation, nice round nose and round pecs when buy Chagoi...

    It will be cool to see how big your Chagoi get in 2 months. Keep us posted.
