    Hi Dinh, also saw ur other thread on hosokai kohak. It seems u are on the look out for a piece of kohak . Imho better choose maruyama than hosokai espcially if you havent got a chance to raise maruyama kohak before. You can check their site to see pix of their fish and its characteristic. Its http://www.kagura-beni.jp/2003-12.htm. I dont any affiliation wt this farm just want to express my opinion only.

      These Kohak have the Kagura bloodline, the deep scarlet beni, the maruzome kiwa. I like the maruten 3 step in the bowl, but all are good.

        Thanks Paul - Yes, I am looking for a Kohaku. Seems my pond has
        a room for one more after I replaced the old pump. Very much want
        to get one over the 4th of July weekend.

        It seems to me that people in this forum have strong knowledge
        of koi that why I post for opinions and hope to get good comments.

          Hey Dinh,
          You know my pick, the maruten three step is my #2 choice.

            I like the 3 step to the left of the maruten 3 step in the 1st picture. Fantastic sashi in the first step and kiwa on the first step. I also like the shape of beni. Odome a bit skinny and lack a nice tail break in my humble opinion but a nice fish overall.

            My 2cents worth.

              Hi, Maruyama kohaku has nice beni. Here is one of them I bought few weeks ago. 28cm at point of purchase. Should have put on weight now.

              (sorry dinh, I made use of your thread to show the maruyama. I like their kohaku)

                Really nice Kohak pick up. Would nice to see that pattern when the fish it at 20". Keep us posted.

                          Dinh -

                          I prefer these Kohaku to the Hosokai you posted to other day b/c of the odd shape of the heads on the Hosokai fish. I have a Hosokai showa whose head looks exactly the same shape as the Kohaku's. I do not find his "heavy brow" to be as pleasing as the fish with more rounded shaped heads. This is just a personal preference - I do know how they measure up against each other in regard to koi show judging. THese Kohakus are very beautiful!

                            I think you just have to go with the one that strikes your eye.
