    Maybe it's just me, but I can barely make out a fish.

    It's not just you turtlemommy. I can barely make it out either.

    One thing to know is that when measuring butterfly koi, you do NOT include the tail in the measurement. I also don't feel it's 36"+ as I've yet to see one of these totes that long. Most longfin have nasal poms, it's normal. the black speckly marks are just nothing more than coloration from within the gene pool this fish was born from, plus, the poor water conditions it's kept in if that water in that tote is from the pond, which I have no doubt it is.
