    Bekko what do you think comments please

    This Bekko is about 17 inches long and 4 -5 years old it has gin rin scales as well. I figure he is quite a nice fish only the second big bekko I have had. He has been used for breeding and in this cold climate the growth is slow. Your comments would be appreciated. His parentage is unknown other than from some Japanese breeder

    He has a nice white head.

    Most SHiro Bekko's heads are yellow as daffodils.

    Wait. Someone is breeding for bekkos? Breed two of the best sankes you can find and you'll have more bekkos than you can stand....good one too.

    Bekko

    That's interesting about the sanke's I may try that some time as I have some nice sankes. His head was more yellow but it seems to be getting whiter as he gets older. His skin is very nice with the gin rin I suppose his black could be sharper. In these parts you don't see too many nice bekkos

    youdont find many bekkos around, they seem to be getting rarer and rarer, it has a nice white head as already been mentioned, could do with a bit more sumi in places but neverless still a good bekko but not keen on sparkly koi my self :lol:

    Paul what do you think of the idea of crossing two good Sanki's to get bekkos? Yes the sumi could be darker. I used him a couple of times in spawnings with a all black female and don't see many bekkos coming out of that. The other male is a utsiri mono and the off spring have considerable orange in them. The orange didn't start to show up for a few months but now there is quite a bit in there.

    hi sanke
    dont know much about breeding side youd need to see breeders like maurice and other breeders that may have experiance on these matters.
    i found a article in a magazine by kate mcgill all about bekkos which would be interesting for you as she goes on to say that shiro bekko and aka bekko arose spontaneously from taisho sanke spannings.
    hope this helps

    Paul thanks for looking that up. That is interesting. I may get a chance to try that out. I have quite a few sankes the one female is doitsu and the males are scaled. I dit a doitsu and scaled cross this year and got some nasty looking scaled jobs out of that so I am rethinking any of those types of crosses in the future.
