      Wink PLEASE CRITIQUE: Kohaku 2018 Grow out

      Hi All!

      I am new to the forum and fairly new to the hobby! I've always loved koi and finally part of it.

      I would love any feedback and critiques on the 2 Kohakus- Very excited to learn from the pros!

      Thank you!

      They both had good body
      Decent skin
      Big fish pattern
      If you can do your magic then it may
      Look like one of my Sakai male kohaku from last year that I no longer owned
      Have fun

      Thanks! I appreciate the feedback. Now hopefully, I can grow them out right.

      Your Kohaku looks great. Did you grow out before rehoming??

      Yes the picture was 18” last oct
      I had him around 12” in April
      Hopefully I see him again
      Because I do know the new owner and he is really happy with the koi

      Both are nice. The 2nd one has a higher chance of being a male. Are they SFF?

      You are in a lose/lose scenario. Those koi look perfect...all you can do is muck em up. Give them to me before you grow any more attached.
      In truth you have money and good taste. or no someone that does, or were very lucky. Good luck keeping them perfect.

      Thanks for the feedback! Im far from having money... I guess I got lucky this time. I'll post update picture every couple months. Hopefully, I can raise them well.
