    Put a dollar value on this Sanke and Koromo

    The Sanke is in the 8-9" size. The Koromo is 9-10". The Koromo got a little lathered up jumping out of the bowl. So what sort of retail value would they have?

    PS
    I think the 28-135mm lens messes with the conformation a little.

    a wide range, but judging from pictures and with the limited information given, is not the most accurate way to judge price.

    I have seen koi similar to the pictures for sale in real life for anywhere from $25 to $500. Please note that I did not say sold for those prices. Great majority a lot closer to the lower number than the higher.
    Best regards,

    Bob Winkler

    My opinions are my best interpretation of my experiences. They are not set in stone as I intend to always be a student of life. And Koi.

    I agree with Bob and would estimate $50 each.

    I suspect their value is less than $125 but a novice hobbyist could pay more. I see problems with both fish.

    Im with Ray,

    $50 but i wouldnt buy them, $50 would buy better koi if you had a good dealer near you. at least it would near where i live. but these would be in a $50 dollar vat. why the question?

    For the size and quality, I would put a retail price of $50-150...Now if they are from a famous breeder, maybe alittle higher 10-15%.

    Thai koi

    FYI these koi were both from Thailand. They were inexpensive. They were probably some of the better koi in the batch. I have had them since May and they have grown well and held color. I like them better than a lot of the Japanese koi I also got in this year that were higher.
