      Danichi Kohaku and Omosako Shiro Utsuri

      So my wife wanted to get out of the house and go on a road trip. So, I took her to Kodama Koi Farm in Saddle River, NJ. While she enjoys my pond, she's not a "koi person". I just wanted to go see some koi and since my pond is overstocked I had no intention of buying anything. Ya ya. So I ended up buying this Danichi Kohaku and Omosako Shiro Utsuri. They are both 9-10 inches. I bought 'em, obviously I like them. I realize the beni in the pec fin is a big no no on the kohaku. I bought the Shiro for the future, there are some nice bands of black under the surface I hope to come up. So, tell me what you think!

      Honestly these two are out of my level
      But hey the most important thing is that you’re happy with them
      I’m hoping you don’t paid too much since I think they are just higher pond grade
      Yes the shiro might gives some excitement to wait for
      Congratulation and have fun

      Thanks for the reply . They were cheap, $150 each so inexpensive enough take a chance on. None of my fish are show quality, just higher pond grade so they fit in. Just like the Beni in the fin of the kohaku, my other fish have a non no or two also. But for my budget they are great.

      But I would really appreciate your ideas on the demerits of these two.

      The kohaku is the better fish because of better skin and body. At this size, you are just looking for potentials. My guess is that the kohaku will stand out more long term. It will be bigger with more glow.
