      If I were to have gone for a Kohaku, this is the one I would have aimed for.

      Except that tiny dot on the face. I really hope it fades as the koi matures.

      Thanks all... I think this one was high up on many people's list, and it was total luck being chosen to pick first.

      Can't wait to get 'em in the lower "exercise" pond.

      The other comment to make is this one has a good conformation, apparent even at this size.
      Also I'd say that getting your first choice was pure karma, you've been very helpful to a lot of folks here, and I remember getting advice from you on my pond design. Congrats!

      I love this kohaku. body shape looks awesome. I think the pattern is great. I do not think the spot on the nose is bad it gives the kohaku character.

      I would have chosen it because of the spot!! Sort of a Marilyn Monroe-esque beauty mark (:

      Does the spot make it a four step, I wonder?

      ......or you can just ship it out to "The Windy City" Rudy/mine "IFFY" needs a Kohaku friend just about now.
      BTW Steve did you know my Lucky # is 13.

      The spot never really bothered me... I like the beauty mark idea!

      I'm always happy to try and help! But some days I do better than others.

      About 9 months of feeding and the pattern now looks much, much smaller ...

      Honestly, as soon as it started to grow...
      I mentioned him to Dick Benbow, and I think I made the cardinal sin of picking it because of what it looked like
      at the time, as opposed to what it might look like in the future... youngsters beni usually needs to be below the lateral line.

      As always, I'd love to hear other opinions about additional clues of what I could have seen to predict his future (or lack there of )
      But in any event it's why I participate in grow outs... live and learn.
