    my fish

    I finally got some decent digital pics of some of my fish. Last week bowled all 6 of my asagi during a big water change and snapped some shots with the 1.3 M camera attached to my new cell phone.

    The test now will be if I can post them. To check that I will start with a shot of my two biggest, both from Hosokai, both seem to be males.



    I also have about 10 koromo, one doitsu hariwaki (with ki-kisui blood in it), a red kujakiu, two ochiba, and a ki utsuri. I did not have time to get them all out of the pond that day though, but soon I will and post those shots as well.

    It worked! Great. Here are some more shots of the same fish.

    Blinky is the one with the red left eye. Great big arced shoulders on this boy, but Yuki ('snow') has my favorite scales of all my asagi.

    Thanks Matt!
    Was surprised after looking at the first few pics to see you hand in there and then realize, Hey those koi are bigger than I thought. I too like yuki as the asagi han is very nice and the net fukerin is very even.
    thanks for posting!

    Thanks Dick, i really do love the furikin on Yuki.

    Here are the other 4. One of them is an Otsuka, can you guess which one?

    (honestly, I am not 100%, but I am pretty sure I can tell.)


    I have not named these ones so we`ll call them Asagi a, b, c, and d.

    Corresponing to the folowing layout in the group shot:

    b




    a c d

    Here is some close ups of 'a'.

    This fish is actually the oldest of the 4. San sai if you can believe it.

    As a low budget hobbiest with a small pond, all my fish are smaller than they should be. This little fella (lassie? I am not sure on thes 4 yet) lived
    its first six months in my care liviing in a filtered plastic tub (before I built my pond). They were all put in such small quarters again last August when they should have been eating much and growing, due to a split pond liner that took weeks to repair. This year there has been enough growth for me to stop worring about serrious stunting.

    'b, c, and d' are all ni-sai. so is blinky. yuki also spent too much time in a tub, he is san-sai.

    Matt: Nice photos! I do not know enough about Asagi to think I could guess how these will turn out. I do have lots of questions. ... How old? How long out of mud pond? Is the color as posted true? I have read how Asagi's red keeps coming as they age, but I'm a bit surprised to see virtually no red on most of these. Are you thinking that's good for their age? At the top, the close-up of the two fish shows very different type of coloration within the blue scales. Thoughts on the differences? Well, I'll not keep going on.

    Ah! You're still posting while I'm asking questions. I'll let you finish.
